Cistus (Rock Rose) Essential Oil

Cistus Essential Oil, also known as Rock Rose, has a rich, sweet, herb-like, balsamic scent. Its oil is pale-orange in color. A gum is obtained by boiling the leaves and twigs of a wild growing shrub. The oil is then obtained thru steam distillation.

Why Auroma 100% pure and natural Citus Essential Oil from The Aromatherapy Place? Unscrupulous producers often adulterate their essential oils. Auroma has an on-site full laboratory where all essential oils undergo rigorous testing and analysis. This is done using the latest in Quality Assurance with Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) equipment to accurately analyze each batch of essential oils we receive from our farmers and distillers. This is done even with the growers Auroma has dealt with for over 20 years. Every batch, every time!
