Dr. Malte Hozzel, a renowned aromatherapist and educator in the field, began his work with essential oils in the 1970’s, over 40 years ago. He began by studying the works or renowned experts and trying out the oils in his daily life. With this growing experience he realized that the quality and variety of the oils available in the market was not ideal. There was a need for someone to search out the best quality oils, sourced from the best growing locations and create a range of products that would expand the field and make essential oils accessible to many more people in a way that would have a positive impact on their lives. This led to the founding of the company and the introduction of the Oshadhi brand in 1990. Since that time, Oshadhi has gained the reputation for having the finest quality and range of essential oils and related products with satisfied customers all over the world.
The Name Oshadhi
comes from Sanskrit and stands for the healing plant and the carrier of light. Oshadhi transforms the energy of the sun to the benefit of the mankind.

The Oshadhi philosophy
The Oshadhi philosophy is governed by the criteria of purity, naturalness, simplicity and joy.
This is how the brand has consistently expanded over the last 20+ years. We pay constant attention to the quality of all OSHADHI products by selecting them directly from their origin on all continents and paying highest attention to the best possible means of storing, handling and packaging. With Oshadhi, our customers know to expect top-quality products. With this in mind we offer more than 550 essential oils and absolutes, as well as numerous synergy blends, hydrosols, and skin care products that are of the highest quality.
Our oils and their producers have been deeply researched since we place a premium on the way the oils are processed, stored and handled. In addition we have worked hard to create an environment where our team works in harmony and develops positive feelings and a relationship to the oils. Just as we honor the plants and our team of co-workers, we also honor animals by avoiding at all times any testing of any of our products or ingredients on animals. Oshadhi has never tested any product on animals and maintains this as a strict principle in our company’s philosophy.
