Aqua Oleum

Aqua Oleum is a company with a long history, starting with Julia's mother, Kerttu, a Finnish biochemist who studied essential oils and who had a lifelong interest in herbs, as did her mother before her. Family knowledge goes back at least three generations and our interest in essential oils pre dates the advent of Aromatherapy in the UK by many years.

Origins

Aqua Oleum is taken from an ancient alchemical manuscript on the nature of the soul.

Aqua (water) was a favourite symbol of the alchemists and referred to the wisdom of the unconscious. The elusive nature of this wisdom was the spirit Mercurius and was also known as Oleum (oil) due to its ability to penetrate all things and its reluctance to restrict itself to any particular form.

The manuscript also discusses the problems and difficulties of mixing wordly values with those born of Aqua permanens - unchanging water. An essential oil, being the essence of a plant, can be seen as a bridge between spirit and matter. the main concern of Alchemy was the union of these opposites on a psychological level. Water is also used to extract most of the oils from their raw materials.
