using essential oils, is the natural way to achieve a sense of
personal well-being. The wide range of essential oils, with their different
fragrances and properties, have been used since time immemorial to assist
in the relief of common complaints and to promote physical and emotional
well-being, essential oils can be used singly, or in blends, diluted in
a suitable carrier oil to create a massage oil designed to provide comfort
and relief. Different fragrances can also be used to modify one's mood
to calm and relax, or to stimulate - either as bath drops or as air fresheners.
The range of Mediterana essential oils has been carefully chosen to enable
individuals to use them in their homes in a variety of ways, and enhance
their well-being naturally.
Mediterana oils are organically produced in a coastal region of the Mediterannean
which was an import source of essential oils for the ancient Greeks and
Romans. Mediterana has complete control over the quality of its essential
oils. After distillation in their grown region, they are transported to
Australia, checked for quality, and bottled using sterile stainless steel
equiptment, Mediterana oils have arranged with Dr Lyall Williams of Macquarie
University, Sydney, to check each batch of oils for purity, using the
technique known as gas chromatography, to identify the major components
and their proportions.
Dr Lyall Williams reports:
"The use of Essential oils for Aromatherapy massage may produce risks
to client and therapist unless the oils are of special purity. Usually
plants for the commercial production of essential oils are grown as monocultures
and invariably attract pests and diseases which are controlled by pesticides
and fungicides - now more generally known as biocides. If these chemicals
are carried over with the essential oil during the steam distillation
step they may eventualy be transported during the aromatherapy massage
into the fatty tissues of the body. The essential oils of the Mediterana
range are not grown in monocultures and so have not been exposed to pesticides.
They are truly organically grown. "
