AromaticsEnhance Your Spirit & Purify Your Enviroment
For thousands of years, the burning of natural substances has been used by people of many different cultures, traditions and beliefs for cleansing, healing and spiritual purposes. The Garden of Light carries a wide variety of incense from all around the world.
Likewise, essential oils have a long history. These extracts have been used therapeutically, as well as for culinary purposes, skin care and cosmetics, bath, massage, diffusing and perfume.
Divine Essence is the signature line of Union Nature. Founded in 1994, the company is a pioneer in the importation, manufacturing and distribution of essential oils, floral waters and vegetable oils. In 2000, Union Nature was the first company in North America to receive an organic certification from ECOCERT.
Throughout the years, Union Nature has developed privileged commercial relations with its American, African, European, Asian and Oceanic partners. By offering a better price to these small producers than that of the world market, and making advance payments before harvest, they help local communities and farmers to obtain better wages and improved working conditions.
The producer sends the essential oil directly to Union Nature without going through a middle person. This allows the producer to obtain a good price for his or her work and also allows Union Nature to better control the quality of the oil and pass on the savings to the consumer.
Union Nature continues to promote fair trade practices by developing its own projects with local partners and supporting initiatives that allow the combination of organic and fair trade certifications which result in more “global” organic/fair trade standards.
The Garden of Light is delighted to offer the following selection of Divine Essence Organic Essential Oils: Eucalyptus, Lavender, Neroli, Sandalwood, and Peppermint. We also carry the Organic Rose Extra Floral Water and Organic Sweet Almond Oil.
