Quality is a big buzz word for us here at Tisserand Aromatherapy, and as many people know, when an oil is Soil Association Organic, it’s a quick and easy identifier to reassure you of our quality standards. At Tisserand we choose to supply organic, wild crafted and ethically harvested essential oils and each have their place! All our oils are grown and sourced around the world, and sustainably produced from start to finish, and we only work with ethical suppliers and sources that we can trust.

While we normally select one oil to celebrate each month, this September we are sharing the love and celebrating all 19 of our organic essential oils. With the help of Jo Kellett, our in-house essential oil expert, we’ve revisited and revised the properties of all our organic essential oils to rediscover the benefits and remind ourselves how we can use them to help to support our health and wellbeing when we need it the most.
