About us

'Essential oils and herbs' Ltd. is an European company specialized in growing, producing and processing herbs and essential oil cultures. The company owns the largest Melissa officinalis plantation in Bulgaria. Our fields are located in the region of Sliven, Southeast Bulgaria, with totally built irrigation system.
We are also wholesale traders of essential oils and a hub for storage, packaging and transport of different essential oils, produced by our partners and other small agricultural producers of essential oil and dried herbs.
We own a base in which we have built our own distillery to process the raw green mass in the short period between mowing and distilling operations.

Partnership with processing and production plants

We are looking for partners in the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and Flavors and fragrances industries. We work to build strong and valuable partnerships based on mutual collaboration and long term relations with strong and reliable partners sharing our philosophy for modern, responsible and mutually profitable business. We do not plan to develop our own final products or retail sales.
We can, in collaboration with these plants, plan growing specific types of cultures, depending on specific pre-defined criteria and characteristics of the final output – essential oils. We are able to finance the whole production process of producing essential oils provided we have a guarantee the final product will be purchased (in case they meet the pre-defined and agreed criteria).

Sustainability

The mission of the company is to support the development of the sector in Bulgaria by involving other small agricultural producers in the production of essential oil cultures.
Our scope of achieving the mission:

Our story

Distillery

We use our own distillery located very close to our fields. Its capacity allows for processing our own production within a very short time. This optimizes the time necessary for production and guarantees a larger quantity of Melissa oil with a better quality and at lower production costs.
