At the ACHS Apothecary Shoppe, we believe that giving back is essential to promoting a sustainable future for our planet. That's why we're proud to donate 2% of all sales to support global sustainability education initiatives in botanical production for the essential oil industry.
Since 2016, we've been supporting global scholarships that provide opportunities for students to study aromatherapy, permaculture, essential oil production, and sustainable farming and harvesting techniques. We're committed to helping farmers seeking organic status and educating essential oil producers and consumers about sustainability.
“I've traveled the globe to visit organic farms and distilleries for the highest quality and ethically produced raw materials,” says ACHS Founder Dorene Petersen, “but it's not enough to just purchase organic. Overharvesting has put trees like sandalwood on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. So it’s more important than ever to educate farmers and producers about sustainability and to educate consumers about where their products come from. Environmental stewardship takes everyone's commitment and participation to ensure we have quality natural health and wellness choices for generations to come.”
We are actively involved in the International Federation of Essential Oil and Aroma Trades (IFEAT, www.ifeat.org) and work to educate over 100,000 essential oil and aroma trade members about clinical aromatherapy and the global environmental impact of sustainable and organic farming initiatives.
By shopping with us, you can make a difference in promoting sustainability education initiatives and supporting organic and sustainably wildcrafted/harvested essential oils.
