"Amrita means 'nectar of immortality.' It stands for my commitment to purity, therapeutic effectiveness and the upliftment of your spirit. When you smell true botanical essential oils, you breathe in the consciousness of the plant, and your whole being is nurtured by the plant's vital nature. As the essences become part of your daily experience, they will give you health and well-being for a lifetime." - Dr. Christoph Streicher, Founder and President of Amrita Aromatherapy
Amrita has a network of certified organic farmerswho produce our organic essential oils. Each farm is regularly inspected by its certifier. Amrita’s certifier (Oregon Tilth) oversees our suppliers’ certificates as well as the bona fide status of their certifiers. The certification process also consists of a regular inspection of Amrita’s facilities and record keeping. Thus Amrita is in full compliance with the National Organic Program (NOP) of the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Every one of Amrita’s essential oils has been verified for purity and authenticity by gas chromatography (GC). After 14 years of analyzing essential oils, Christoph emphatically states, "An in-house gas-chromatographic laboratory is an absolute necessity to ensure the purity and effectiveness of essential oils and essential oil products."
Testing every essential oil batch when it arrives, as we do at Amrita, would be cost-prohibitive for an essential oil company that has to rely on an outside GC lab. And spot-testing, or simply relying on vendors’ information, is not sufficient to ensure the purity of the oils. The detection of "nature-identical compounds" of synthetic origin often requires chiral column analysis.
