Essential Oils from Iceland

These essential oils are distilled by Hraundis Gudmundsdottir of Raudsgil, Iceland. There are many related species of plants between Arizona and Iceland (who would have thought!). Even though the environments are completely different, the plants share a strong capacity for adaptation to extreme conditions, and this is reflected in the complexity of their essential oils. These oils contain the strength, clarity and beauty of Iceland. We hope you enjoy them.
