The Tisserand Institute 
Robert Tisserand began researching the effectiveness of essential oils more than 40 years ago. His passion for the field runs so deep that he continues to be one of the top names in the field. For those interested in learning more about the scientific roots for the benefits as well as the limitations of essential oils, they can find all sorts of information here, not only through on-line classes & blogs, but straightforward info-graphics.

Florihana
 
Set among the hills of the richly bio-diverse area of southern France, the Florihana Distillery produces some of the most extraordiniary aromatic products I have found. They offer hydrolats, aromatic tinctures and absolutes as well as essential oils.
