Essential oils are the building blocks of perfume formulation and their levels of concentration determine the ultimate character and quality of any ambient scent. Put another way, a fine fragrance is a dynamic, stratified tapestry, which is only as good as the essential oils it contains.
Ultimately, all perfume compositions relate to Aristotle’s iconic axiom about the whole being equal to the sum of all its parts; namely, the quality of all the ingredients; their purity, cost and safety.
Essential oils for use in products for the home are found primarily in candles, air freshener diffusers and cleaning and personal care products, but when it comes to fragrances for air freshener diffusers, all of the most popular oils, such as lavender, cinnamon leaf, rosemary, eucalyptus and lemon, can be found within the fragrance refills we produce within our Pittsburgh manufacturing facility.
We are one-of-a kind against a million wannabes who sell air freshener products these days, mainly because our fragrance refills are made and field-tested right here in the United States — but that’s merely one of a number reasons we have the best air freshener fragrances for homeowners, apartment owners and small business owners.
The following affiliations and their standards ensure that the fragrance oils we select and sell are the best they can possibly be.

We have invested heavily in the most advanced tools the world of industrial science has to offer so that we can provide the highest quality control standards for all of their valued customers. Purity is not an easy conceptual goal because it is possible to create an essential oil that is pure and yet not of the best quality.
Within the fragrance oil industry, the standards for quality and purity imposed by aromatherapy are the highest found anywhere because these characteristics affect their therapeutic value, aroma and color.
The ultimate quality of essential oils can be negatively impacted if they are exposed to extreme light, heat or oxygen, and their ultimate stability depends upon repository in a cool place in air-tight containers.
The manner in which our oils are packaged and handled and how they are stored after production are other factors that explain why our fragrance oils are the best found anywhere.
All of our fragrance refills and the air freshener diffusers each undergo rigorous testing on the site of our enormous Technology Center facility.
