California September 30, 2005 Diamond Lotus Essentials,
announced the re-launch of its 100% Pure, Certified Organic Essential
Oil line to the Spa Industry at the annual ISPA convention in Dallas,
Established in 1999, the Diamond Lotus Ranch, located in the fertile
volcanic soils of the Mount Shasta area of Northern California, grows
and steam distills a select line of therapeutic-grade essential oils.
The altitude and volcanic ash soil, which is rich in microbes
and enzymatic activity, makes for an ideal environment to grow high
quality herbs for essential oils, said Don Cameron, Ranch Manager
and graduate of Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo School of Agriculture, We
use drip irrigation, and customize our farming equipment to protect
the delicate flowers and leaves during growing and harvesting. We also
use proprietary food-grade stainless steel harvesting equipment to ensure
A state-of-the-art, customized steam distillation facility is located
on the property, using food grade stainless steel, and operated since
its inception by a former US Air Force jet engine mechanic with 25 years
of experience. Using a combination of modern and thousand year
old techniques, the fresh plants are gently steam distilled using low
pressure and low temperatures to maximize the therapeutic compounds.
Analysis of our oils by a third party laboratory continues to confirm
their high quality and purity.
For many pill-fatigued maturing baby boomers, essential oils and aromatherapy
products have become the health-promoting mode of choice for handling
many common complaints such as joint aches and pains, relief from tension
and stress, the healthy aging of skin and hair, and hormonal imbalances,
such as PMS and Menopause. Modern clinical studies continue to confirm
the beneficial health effects of essential oils, when applied externally,
for their broad spectrum internal effects. The select essential oils
in the Diamond Lotus Essentials line are particularly noted for
their antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral effects, and include:
Helichrysum, Juniper, Lavender, Melissa, Oregano, Peppermint, and Thyme.
The purity and potency of our essential oils are evident when
you consider that one cup of our 100% pure Melissa essential requires
one ton of herb to produce, said Mr. Cameron. This makes
Melissa extremely valuable and expensive, so consumers and spa professionals
need to be wary of possible adulteration.
Organic personal care products have experienced double-digit growth
since 1999, with expectations of 20% growth this year. Additionally,
Americans are visiting spas in record numbers with 95 million visits
annually, and claimed use by 15% of the general population. Its
expected that spas will go mainstream across the economic spectrum with
increased usage already being seen by men and families, including children
and pets. Spas are no longer just for pampering, but for total body
wellness mind, body, soul.
Diamond Lotus Essentials meets the needs of spa professionals
and their customers with a select line of certified organic and therapeutic-grade
100% pure essential oils, aromatherapy mists, hydrosols, and custom-designed
formulations for skin, personal care, and natural cleaning products.
