Distiller Spotlight: Florihana in the South of France

by Andrea Butje on February 10, 2011

Florihana distillery Florihana is a distillery in the south of France. This is their mission statement:

“At the foundation of our commitment to create the Florihana distillery were two main aims: respect for nature and development of highly therapeutic certified organic products for aromatherapists.”

I believe they have accomplished both!

Florihana uses organic farming techniques for plants under cultivation. Any wild plants are harvested from sustainable sources with respect to their ecosystems. They have an exclusive distillation process set up, and they use very low temperatures to distill their plants.

They include the complete botanical name and chemotype, distillation date and batch number on all their labels.

Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) reports are given for every batch on the Florihana website. The only other website I know that does this is Aromatics International, in Montana, USA.

Florihana sells organic essential oils, hydrosols, carrier oils, and soaps. They make organic cosmetics, honey, massage oils and more. You can purchase small sizes on their website–a wonderful feature for a distillery! The shipping is rather high, so it makes sense to purchase more items, or share an order with a few friends. Tell Alain that Andrea from Aromahead sent you! (No affiliate program, I am just a big fan!)

Hi Andrea! Have you heard of Tropical Traditions? They distribute Florihana and I was wondering if you trust them as a distributor.
Thanks! Mary

After reading your post this morning, I spent about 20 minutes on the Florihana website. Wow! Each page has so much information about the product. I admire that kind of transparency and it instill a lot of trust. I would certainly feel comfortable ordering from them now. I especially appreciate Kc’s testimonial.

The florihana link above does not work. But florihana.com did.

I *LOVE* Florihana. I have been purchasing from them for almost a year and they have consistent quality, a great selection and adorable packaging. The last shipment included the most exquisite Peppermint Hydrolat and a Helichrysum italicum that was out of this world!

These distiller profiles are fabulous – more please! Talk about win-win…the distillers get recognized and the importers meet new suppliers. Thanks for your contribution to excellence in aromatherapy! Liz
