Why we love Tisserand Aromatherapy
It was while on a train, heading back to boarding school at the age of 17, that Robert Tisserand decided he would dedicate his life to sharing his passion for essential oils, and their abilities to promote health and happiness. Thus, in 1974, the Aromatic Oil Company began its journey in the bedroom of Robert's London home. For the next 11 years, against the odds, Robert despatched his hand-bottled and hand-labelled oils to customers every Saturday morning from his local post office.
Robert soon became a leading writer and educator on the art of aromatherapy, and in 1985 Tisserand Aromatherapy Products Ltd was formed, where Robert still works as essential oil and formulations consultant.
We love that this brand started from humble beginnings and now boasts over 40 years' worth of both experience and passion. We also love Tisserand's unwavering focus on the importance of people's wellbeing through only the best that nature has to offer.
Why we chose Tisserand Aromatherapy
Tisserand is not only renowned for its wonderful choice of products, but is also highly recommended by aromatherapy professionals worldwide. In addition, the brand has strong ethical principles; Tisserand guarantee that its essential oils are one or more of the following:
- Purely organic – derived from plants grown without the use of man-made fertilisers, herbicides or pesticides
- Ethically harvested – sustainably derived from plants that are not harvested so aggressively that they become depleted
- Wild crafted – sustainably derived from plants gathered from their natural, wild habitat.
And all are free from synthetic fragrances, SLS, petrochemicals, parabens and ingredients derived from animals and animal produce.
Why their products work
From day one, Tisserand’s aim has remained unchanged – to offer the finest essential oils and formulations to enhance health and wellbeing. Whether from the foothills of the Pyrenees or the citrus groves of Brazil, Tisserand essential oils are sourced from botanical species for maximum fragrance, using only the freshest produce possible.
