Established in 1975 by John and Lyn Rainey, our company's original mission was to grow, harvest and distil a range of essential oil crops primarily for the flavour markets of the world. Crops such as peppermint, coriander, dill, parsley and sweet fennel were established on the fertile plains of Canterbury, New Zealand. 

Our products have been sold in such discerning overseas markets as Great Britain, Spain, Japan, France, the United States, and Australia. The increased local demand for good quality essential oils has seen the focus of our business change from offering a limited range of locally produced oils to offering a complete range of essential oils, both local and imported. Our knowledge gained as a producer and our numerous contacts built up over the years enable us to identify and source the best quality oils at an affordable price.

In 2021, John's daughter Abigail and her husband Adam joined the business. With a shared passion for the natural world and Adam's degree in plant and microbial science, this seemed like the perfect fit for them and their family. We are now the longest operating, family-owned essential oils business in New Zealand.

Whether you use essential oils as an aromatherapy practitioner, a massage therapist, a natural product manufacturer or to enhance your personal sense of wellbeing, you can be assured that we strive to provide quality products for all your needs.
