The English Aqua Oleum has three generations of experience in essential oils. Julia Lawless’s mother Kerttu was a Finnish-born biochemist who married a Brit. An aromatherapist herself, Julia has written the following wonderful non-fiction books also used in aromatherapist training: The Encyclopedia of Essential Oils and The Encyclopedia of Aromatherapy. She gives lectures and appears on TV and radio and in public events when an expert in essential oils is needed. Aqua Oleum is a family company, and as Managing Director, Julia herself makes sure that their essential and other types of oils are of the highest quality. Julia and her daughter Natasha have made great packaging changes and increased the share of organic oil. The floral waters in spray bottles make great room fragrances and even light perfumes. In 2016, Aqua Oleum was selected as the best essential oil brand in England.
