When it comes to producing Sage Essential Oil, not every bottle tells a story of purity..
The path to finding genuinely pure oils is obscured by industry practices that prioritize profit over purity. Here’s what to watch out for:
Synthetically Filled: Many essential oils on the market are filled with synthetic chemicals like phthalates (used to prolong scent) and benzene derivatives (cheap fragrance enhancers). These additives can cause allergic reactions, hormonal imbalances, and long-term health risks.
Heat Damage to the Plant: High-temperature extraction methods compromise the oil's composition, breaking down its beneficial compounds. This heat can transform therapeutic terpenes into less effective or potentially harmful by-products.
Residual Chemicals Which Harm the Planet: The use of solvents like hexane in the extraction process can leave behind residues that not only pose health risks but also contribute to pollution and harm to wildlife and ecosystems.
Whats different with us, as Green Fields Oils Factory?
Here at Green Fields Oils Factory, we are completely different from anywhere else. From our extration methods, to even our genuine ethical practices!
1000 Year Old Traditional Method: Our oils are extracted using traditional steam distillation, a method perfected over centuries that ensures the purest, most potent oil without chemical residues.
Sustainability Through Zero-Waste Distillation: We've adopted a zero-waste cycle that really shows our dedication to sustainability. The water used in our cooling systems during distillation doesn't go to waste; instead, it's repurposed for cleaning.
