All of the Essence of Vali products are made in the USA. The Sleep Balm and Relief Balm is made in Taos, New Mexico. Our EOV Eau de Parfum is made in the Bronx, NY and the EOV mist is made in Shartlesville, PA. The balance of our line is handmade at the Essence of Vali aromatherapy studio on Christopher Street in the west village, NYC, NY.
I wanted to share how we make our products in-house. First we make the mix of essential oils using graduated cylinders, carefully measuring the amount of liquid that goes into our proprietary blend. All of these ingredients are hand poured into large amber bottles. The mix then sits for a several days so that all the essences can meld and completely blend together. For the massage & bath oils, we mix the essential oil blend into a gallon jug of pesticide free jojoba. That sits for several more days before we hand pour and hand label the individual bottles. The mists are individually made, one by one. First, we pour the distilled water into the bottle and then using a pipette, we add the essential oil blend. Each bottle is then hand labeled.
For our samples, we have a special hand machine that someone made for us. It actually pushes the plugs into the vials, exerting just the right amount of force so that the glass vial does not break.
All of our products are made in small batches to guarantee freshness. Please let me know if you have any questions about Essence of Vali or if you would like to come by to see how we create and manufacture our products.
