History of Earthoil

Ethical roots

Earthoil’s history is rooted in ethical and sustainable initiatives. From the time of our first step into the world of essential and pressed seed oils, we have been dedicated to providing oils that tell a story.

Earthoil’s focus is now not solely on certified organic oils but as a supplier to the personal care market, providing natural ingredients for cosmetics.


Earthoil starts life

Earthoil started life in 1997 by growing organic essential oils in Zimbabwe, later opening a head office in the UK.

Due to the political situation, Earthoil was driven out of Zimbabwe and Earthoil Kenya was established, followed by Earthoil India.

Treatt, a highly successful global ingredient solutions provider to the flavour, fragrance and cosmetic industries, was keen to partner with an organic oil company who managed their own growing projects and, importantly, traded with ethical principles and practices.
