At Vitruvi we source essential oils from more than 30 countries around the world; from France to Madagascar we choose regions that produce the highest quality oils so we can bring the best essential oils from around the globe directly to you.
Our scent formulations are created with a team and are often based off suggestions and the needs of our community and customers (we love hearing from you)! After creating preliminary blends we make necessary changes and test the new formulations. This process usually takes a number of weeks, once we have perfected the blend we start the manufacturing process.
Each production batch at Vitruvi is monitored and quality tested. We use non photo-reactive oils of the highest grade of purity to ensure their potency, stability and longevity and always bottle in environmentally friendly packaging.
Our team is incredibly passionate about plants, and about creating beautiful products that help you add simple moments of self care to your day. Our hope is that vitruvi becomes a resource for you to learn about essential oils and the number of ways you can use them to live simply and beautifully, and naturally while learning about the cultures from the countries they are sourced.
