The Andeaë brand was born in 2014 when Kora started making aromatherapy products by distilling Andean plants. This activity allowed him to associate several passions: ethnobotany, non-wood forest products from the native forest, aromatherapy, agroecology and mountaineering.

The plants that come from the San Fabián mountain range or native forest are harvested in a sustainable way, with the greatest possible care and respect to limit our impact on nature. The other plants are grown in gardens managed in an agroecological way, without the use of chemical products. Distillation is done with well water or mountain stream water, which allows us to offer high quality, totally natural and ecological products.

Essential oil and hydrolate are co-products obtained by distilling plant material (leaves, flower bouquets or barks depending on the plants) in an alembic. The essential oil contains the essences of plants in their purest and most concentrated form. It can be used externally in massages diluted in base oils (almond oil, rosehip oil, etc.), internally in a honey spoon only in the case of certain oils, or in an atmospheric diffuser. Hydroslates are milder than essential oil, they can be used safely in children and pregnant women.

Its uses are multiple: natural remedies, beauty products for the skin, relaxing environmental perfumes or to disinfect the air, perfumes for your bedding, original ingredients for the kitchen, supplies for your natural cosmetics, etc.
