PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., June 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- In ancient times, the world's populations discovered the use of essential oils to enhance their well-being. Now, Garden of Life®, a leader and innovator in Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified nutritional products, has partnered with one of America's leading experts in aromatherapy and its network of family farms worldwide to introduce 10 new essential oils for people who also strive to lead healthier lifestyles today — with the added assurance of third-party certification, responsible sourcing and 100 percent pure extraction methods.
Designed to be used in aromatherapy, the new oils make it easy to lift one's spirits, calm the senses and enjoy many other physical and emotional benefits from some of the world's favorite scents. All are made using purity-tested ingredients that meet manufacturing guidelines for safety from the International Fragrance Association and the Flavor and Extract Manufacturers Association.
"Essential oils have been available for years, but very few of them are Certified USDA Organic and Non-GMO Project Verified, using purity-tested ingredients that ensure they are safe to use. Our new line of essential oils is another way to provide products that deliver on our promise to empower extraordinary health," said Brian Ray, president, Garden of Life.
The power of aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the holistic, therapeutic application of essential oils for enhancing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of an individual. To create essential oils, highly concentrated aromatic extracts are distilled or expressed from flowers, fruits, leaves and resins. When used with a diffuser, the fragrance of the oil spreads into the air, stimulating the brain to create a sense of well-being.
"Essential oils have a profound ability to affect our mind and body simultaneously," said Amy Galper, aromatherapy expert and co-founder of the New York Institute of Aromatic Studies. "I love partnering with Garden of Life for their essential oils because they are working on a global scale to bring the best quality, most traceable, powerful and pure essential oils to market."
Scents from around the world
Garden of Life's new organic oils are sourced from around the globe, ranging from energetic Peppermint grown in India, to calming Lavender from France and Bulgaria, to lively Lemon from Argentina. The complete line also includes Tea Tree, Eucalyptus, Orange, Geranium, Lemongrass, Rosemary and Frankincense.
