Zurma Botanical Oil Studio: Where Authenticity meets Excellence, One Drop at a Time.

At Zurma, we believe that nature holds the key to wellbeing, and we are passionate about bringing you the purest and most natural essential oils available. Our commitment to quality and transparency ensures that we source our essential oils from single source distillations, ensuring that each oil captures the true essence of the plant it comes from.

Quality is our top priority. Zurma essential oils undergoes rigorous testing, including Certificate of Analysis (COA) and Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry (GCMS) analysis. This meticulous testing process guarantees the purity, potency, and authenticity of Zurma essential oils, so you can use them with complete confidence and peace of mind. Discover the unparalleled quality and purity of Zurma essential oils and elevate your senses, uplift your spirit, and unlock the full potential of nature's gifts.

Bio Whenua

Our passion for high quality organic and natural skin care has driven us to create our new range of products we are now selling under the brand name of Bio Whenua. In developing this range we have put an emphasis on incorporating native plant material where possible from our very own Aotearoa (New Zealand).
Bio Whenua can be translated as Bio = Life and Whenua = Land. Combined together they encompass the Māori principles of Kaitiakitanga (Sustainability) and Mauri Ora (Good Health) which speak of life and us as the living protectors that nurture the land and the biodiversity it sustains. When we talk about sustainability in our business, we really mean it. 
There is no reason why we can’t look and feel good in our own skin, while also sustaining the health of the beautiful land we live on.
