Ojas is an eco-friendly brand, our tag line “Power of Purity” says it all – from the choice of ingredients to the packaging materials, all intended to benefit human health as well as the “health” of Mother Earth. The brand is different from others in terms of things it does not have - no chemicals or artificial fragrances in any of our products, no toxic packaging materials. Only pure essential oils are used, which have the power and potential to balance us until the core energy level, and add to our ojas – our essence. All base oils used in Ojas products are cold pressed, a natural manufacturing process of extracting oil without involving synthetic chemicals or heat above 140 degrees, thereby retaining beneficial fatty acids and other nutrients of oil in its most natural form. Human beings are natural organic beings, and only natural substances can sustain our health in the long run because they derive their potency from the elements of Nature, a core principle followed at Ojas. This separates us from the rest.
Aromatherapy is the art of healing with pure essential oils - the highly concentrated volatile, aromatic extracts from plants, herbs, and flowers. Not only are aromatherapy essential oils fragrant, many have medicinal properties too which can help in alleviating ailments. Through topical application or inhaling, pure essential oils go a long way in healing!
Aromatherapy candles, if made with 100% beeswax and scented by pure essential oils provide healing benefits. Most of the scented candles marketed today are made from a by-product of petroleum called paraffin. Paraffin candles emits black smoke into the air when burning, releasing toxins some of which are carcinogenic. Secondly, fragrances or perfume oils are added instead of essential oils. Fragrances are often made from chemicals, and lack the therapeutic properties of essential oils. So just because someone lights a scented candle doesn't make it aromatherapy!
Beeswax candles burn longer and do not drip nor stain interior surfaces as created by Paraffin. To ensure only 100% essential oils are added, take note of the aroma. Fragrance or perfume will have very distinct and strong odor where as aroma from aromatherapy candles made with pure essential oils will be more subtle to the point of non-existent if lit in an open area.
Because pure essential oils have the potential to heal us at a deeper, subtle level, for optimal health benefit the quality of essential oil used in a finished product is therefore of vital importance. At Ojas, we strive only for the finest. Some of our products require the use of essential oils unavailable in Thailand, in such cases we import from the source countries. No substitute or compromise in this aspect. The reason why our products are more costly than similar products in the market.
Using base oil of high quality is of immense importance as oil absorbs into our body through the pores of our skin, passing along with it all the herbs and essential oils to the target organs and tissues. Oils with high absorption rate and antioxidant properties are therefore the best choice. Most of the products marketed today use refined vegetable oil or mineral oil as the base oil. The refining process uses heat and synthetic chemicals in the manufacturing process, which rob the oil of its nutrient content resulting in accumulation of toxins in our body, cause of today’s plethora of sicknesses. “Ojas” will ensure that your skin and your health are enriched with the Power of Purity.
Since these are 100% chemical free, the shelf life is much lesser than other brands in the market. Our packaging with completely sealed inner lid will ensure that if not opened, the shelf life is about 2 years from the manufacturing date. However, once opened and used, correct storage is the key to preserving the freshness and potency of your oils. Heat, sunlight and air can all have a detrimental effect on life span of your massage oils. To retain the quality of your oils, we recommend storing it in the fridge until they are used up. If kept in room temperature, then should be used before 8 months.
We have deliberately kept the maximum net volume of our oils to 100 ml, avoiding any chance of it being contaminated.
