Escentia Products based in Benoni is a wholesale aromatherapy products supplier, established 25 years ago. These products include essential oils, carrier oils and aromatherapy auxiliaries.
Escentia Products was started by Roy Aiken in 1994
Since then, the quality of our products have given rise to great popular demand, therefore many of our products can now be found on the shelves of most local health shops.
Until recently, Escentia was the only supplier who had a background in chemistry, whereas most suppliers of oils were therapists themselves. This specialised chemical knowledge has been carried over into the largest, most comprehensive range of essential oils in Africa. We have also specialised in certain areas and can supply interesting and exotic oils such as Naartjie, Red Raspberry, Pomegranate, Helichrysum, Ravensara, Agarwood, Spikenard and Tumeric Oleoresin. Additionally, many of our oils are supplied by local farmers in an effort to support South Africans.
Roy is also a major supplier to a large number of Beauty Institutions in Southern Africa where he regularly gives talks to the students on the history, distillation and uses of essential oils, as well as the chemistry of the oils too.
Our price list includes over 120 essential oils and over 36 carrier oils. We also do our utmost best to source products that are not available directly on our price list.
Escentia’s mission has always been to empower all therapists for true healing and to offer aromatherapy products of the highest quality - from both local and international farmers.
