We are an environmentally and culturally aware family owned and managed farming operation supplying Certified Organic Essential Oils from South Africa.

As we grow, process and market our oils we are able to control the full process. This assures the reliable supply of high quality oils along with personal service from our on-farm head office.

We are dedicated to forming lasting relationships with our customers and are passionate about providing a professional and reliable service.

about us

Veld Botanicals is located on the East coast of South Africa and has been involved in the growing, distillation and marketing of essential oils since 2001.

Controlling the full process, from growing the crops to the distillation of the oil, in our two geographically separate farms and processing facilities, we are able to offer our clients a reliable supply of consistent quality oil from our modern distillation facilities.

We strive to minimize environmental impact in the sustainable production of our quality products. Our committed responsibility towards our environment is constantly being assessed and redressed.

The company works closely with clients to ensure consistent service and lasting customer relationships.

Our principal export product is currently Organic Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca Alternifolia), which we currently export to the EU, USA and other countries.

quality assurance &sustainability

Manufacturing a high-quality product takes time, skill and discipline. Our family has been working in farming for over 100 years and we started growing and distilling essential oils in 2001. Our research and development is ongoing and we now produce 12 different oils. Our passion is in both the growing and extraction processes and we have committed to only producing certified organic essential oils. The availability of waste wood off our neighbours FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council) certified plantations, created an opportunity to improve the sustainability of our processing facilities. In 2014 we converted all our boilers from burning fossil fuels to wood fired boilers. All waste material from the distillation process is returned to the field as a mulch ensuring zero wastage.

Certifications: We are Certified Organic to EU and the USDA NOP regulations, our organic inspection is performed annually by BCS Oko Garantie in Germany.

corporate social

We are acutely aware of the increasing importance of CSR both to our business and that of our customers.

We have always complied with the stringent employment and OHS laws of South Africa and are committed to positively contributing to the development and growth of our country and specifically our local rural community. We support our local community by providing over 100 permanent jobs on our farms.

We also assist a number of community based projects in our area by providing technical assistance in sourcing seedlings, growing crops while also offering distillation and marketing services where requested.

We contribute annually towards a local orphanage and we are currently formalising our community development programme as we wish to invest in addressing critical resources needed in our community particularly in Health and Education.
