Frequently Asked Questions

About Our Product:

Why some brands and products are more expensive than others?

Answer: Products made from pure essential oils, resins & absolutes are a lot more expensive due to the high price for quality ingredients e.g. US$4,500 per kg for pure Sandalwood oil! Read article - Australian Sandalwood Sells For Millions

More often than not, you get what you paid for. Always check the ingredients label to ensure the product contains no filler and/or fragrance (another term for synthetic scent/perfume) as they cost a lot less than the pure essential oils, resins and absolutes (plant concentrates).

Furthermore, all the ingredients we use are of premium quality and sourced from suppliers located within Australia.
