BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA
Organic Helichrysum, Juniper, Pine Needle, Sage and Bay Laurel oils.
A small family run farm in the South East of Bosnia close to the borders with Croatia and Montenegro, the farm has been in the family for 5 generations and they have been growing a distilling essential oils for over 100 years.
Due to the climate which is similar to the UK, but with more annual sunshine, there is an abundance of life and a lot of the Country is covered in Pine forest.
All these plants grow wild around the farm, the entire farm is certified as Organic as no pesticide or herbicides have ever been used and are not needed as these plants are self seeding and are adapted to survive without any human intervention.
The plant material is harvested sustainably, leaving most of the plant to regrow and reproduce for the next harvest, this is simply steam distilled in a traditional unit, the design of which hasn't changed since the family started producing the essential oils 100 years ago.
