Corsican essential oils: naturally organic products to make you feel awesome

Rich in a very wide variety of plant and flower essences, the Corsican maquis is a precious reserve for phototherapy and aromatherapy. Ancestral knowledge has been transmitted from generation to get the best out of the Corsican flora in the fields of alternative medicine, well-being and beauty.

Preserved from any treatment, the different species present in the maquis are distilled to make organic essential oils. In fact, all the essential oils produced in Corsica from island plants benefit from the "organic agriculture" label. The diversity also makes the richness of Corsican essential oils: fennel, myrtle, rosemary, laricio pine, lavender, mint, immortal, mastic pistachio, juniper, cypress eucalyptus are among the essential oils that cannot be ignored.

Renowned for their high quality, Corsican essential oils are also produced in a responsible and sustainable way, in particular through a precisely regulated harvest. The preservation of the scrubland and the durability of the precious island plants are a priority.

In addition to aromatic plants and plants with medicinal virtues, Corsica is also renowned for its citrus essential oils, extracted from the leaves of the plant or from the peel of the fruit.

The uses of Corsican essential oils are as varied as their essences: they can be used in cosmetics and perfumery, in aromatherapy and pharmacy, but also in cooking! During the extraction of essential oils, floral waters of very high quality are also created.
