Lavender Production
Lavender essential oil, like other floral essential oils, is produced by several basic steps: planting, maintaining, harvesting, distilling, and bottling.
Orange Production
Citrus oils are created by expression, or "cold press," rather than by distillation. Watch how orange oil is made in our latest production series video.
Balsam Fir Production
Balsam fir essential oil is created by the unique process of using discarded plant material from the lumber industry. Watch our latest video showing how Balsam fir oil is made.
Black Spruce Production
Black Spruce essential oil is created by the unique process of using discarded plant material from the lumber industry. Watch our latest video showing how Black Spruce oil is made. You can also view Dr. DeCarlo discussing Black Spruce sustainability at https://youtu.be/waWa2G52PbQ.

Jasmine Production
It takes roughly 21,000 flowers to create 5ml of jasmine absolute. Watch our video to learn more about jasmine absolute production.
Frankincense Production

Rosemary Production
This month’s production video is on rosemary. Rosemary is primarily grown by planting the cuttings from existing plants, rather than by traditional seeds.
