What is meant by quintessence?

Quintessence is the refined essence or extract of a substance, or in other words, the scientific optimization of extraction with regards to methods and distillation times in order to obtain and preserve the greatest wealth of active ingredients.

When properly distilled, an essential oil contains 50 to 250 active molecules whereas a synthetic drug for example may contain 2-3 at best. This wealth in active ingredients  gives essential oils their concentration, diversity, extraordinary energy and a potency that is multiplied when they are associated with other oils. 

All of MAISON LAGET’s essential oils are chemotyped, each batch is botanically and biochemically defined  (E.O.B.B.D.) and more importantly - they are distilled long enough to extract all of the active ingredients. 

These demanding standards and requirements are essential to high-quality aromatherapy.

Use and Special Precautions

After reading the special precautions for use, and in the absence of any special precautions to be taken, essential oils may be used as follows:

- Inhalation or diffusion (aromatherapy)
