We use a cold process infusion, we never heat treat our oils. We infuse wildharvested plant material into a first pressed, organic extra virgin olive oil. Because of the type of oil we infuse into, there is the typical (strong) scent that is associated with cold pressed olive oil - so please take that into consideration when ordering this product.
Cultivation: The extra virgin olive oil used is certified organic. The Pau D' Arco plant material is wildharvested. This means that this plant material was found in areas that were not from a farmed plantation, most often well away from highly populated areas, making it an extremely nill risk of being chemically treated. In our opinion wildharvested products are sometimes better than organic, because it was grown entirely by nature without the intervention of mankind.
