Essensoil is a brand of essential oils which was born out of a family farm in the Table Mountain area, just outside of Pietermaritzburg in Kwa-Zulu Natal.
At Essensoil we pride ourselves in growing communities of people and maintaining strong social and ethical guidelines. The way we are able to do this is by managing the complete life-cycle of our product, from the manufacturing process through bottling & labelling up until delivery to your doorstep. This encourages local economic growth on the farms and nurseries by creating employment and utilising renewable resources.
Essensoil is the only brand of essential oils worldwide which are produced entirely organically. We have our very own distillery where the raw material is processed and the oils extracted through careful steam distillation. The farm has a specialized machine called a digester which essentially produces biogas from the greenhouse gas, methane. Raw animal manure is used as the fuel component which is then converted into biogas. This biogas is then used to supply power to run the entire distillery which in turn enables us to maintain a zero carbon footprint. All excess plant material waste is used as compost on the farms fields which deters pests and fertilizes the soil.
