Amrita Aromatherapy's Story – Striving To Supply The Finest Organic Essential Oils

Amrita Aromatherapy has been offering high-quality, organic essential oils and personal care products since 1989.

Having developed a worldwide network of essential oil producers, Amrita is always able to select the finest oil from a number of available sources including small family farms.

How does Amrita know they are therapeutic grade essential oils?

Dr. Christoph Streicher has a Master's Degree in Biochemistry and a Ph.D.  in Physiology. He and his staff critically evaluate the biochemistry of the oils based on how they interact with the human physiology. Using their own gas chromatograph they check that the oils haven’t been diluted, industrially processed or chemically manipulated to ensure their authenticity and therapeutic value.


Oils are selected  according to the holistic healing principles that Dr. Streicher learned in the 80s from well-known Indian Ayurvedic physicians and Jacques Paltz of France, a world-renowned authority on essential oils. 


Although there is no "therapeutic grading system", Amrita ensures that our oils have as much intrinsic therapeutic value as they possibly can. For example, we are careful which chemotype of German Chamomile Essential Oil we supply because the alpha bisabolol oxide type of German Chamomile is fairly useless from a therapeutic perspective. It has very weak  anti-inflammatory properties, whereas the oil we sell is rich in alpha bisabolol (not-oxidised) and thus has strong anti-inflammatory effects. Eucalyptus Globulus can be more harmful than beneficial because it can contain a lot of high-boiling compounds which are irritating to the upper respiratory organs, but Amrita offers Eucalyptus Globulus that is low in these compounds. As a result, it can relax the bronchi and dissolves mucus. Clary Sage with a sclareol content of less than 0.5% does not have the desired effects. Most Clary Sage on the market has a sclareol content of less than 0.1%. Amrita only carries Clary Sage with a minimum of 0.5%.


Amrita’s certified organic products are verified by third party regulators to ensure they’ve been grown, harvested, distilled and handled without pesticides, chemicals and other toxic ingredients, according to the USDA/NOP standards.


Amrita has a devout following of aromatherapists, massage therapists, medical doctors, chiropractors, natural food stores, and individual customers.

Client Reviews

Essential Oil reviews:

  • "Following Christoph's advice, I diffused a 1:4 mixture of Amni Visnaga Eucalyptus Radiata 20 mins. twice per day to relieve asthma symptoms. The results were amazing! The combination of oils cleared out the congestion and relaxed my breathing. Total relief without an inhaler! I don't know what I would do without amni visnaga. Yes, it's expensive. But when you combine it with E. radiata it's very affordable and the two oils work together very well." L.M.

Roll-On Relief reviews:

  • "I have sinus headaches and this product [Headache Roll-on Relief] is superb. It really works and believe me I have tried them all. Good job Amrita Aromatherapy I recommend it 100%." Kathy 

Organic Perfume reviews:

  • "This was my first Amrita purchase. Not only was the delivery quick but I was exceptionally pleased with the quality of this essential oil fragrance. I've always loved Vetiver men's fragrances. I wore Guerlain's Vetiver cologne for many years and it was always a favorite of mine. I love the purity of this scent [Vetiver Perfume] and I receive many compliments asking me "what is that wonderful scent you are wearing?". I recently purchased the Lavender-Cinnamon and it is equally pleasing." MT

Bugs BeGone reviews:

  • "We live in the woods, loaded with ticks and other bugs, and went out to work in the yard the other day. I diluted this [ Bugs BeGone Synergy ] with a little bit of water in a small spray bottle and nothing got on us. i'll give it another try next trip out. I'm impressed." A.A.

Carrier Oil reviews:

  • "Thanks for the great products. I especially like the purity of the Calophyllum. And the smell is glorious. The turn about time from placing my order to opening the carefully wrapped package was exceptional." D.L.
