Essential Oil Distiller Profile: Meet Kailash Dixit

essential oil distiller

We are honored to introduce our dear friend and Nepalese essential oils distiller, Kailash Dixit. Kailash owns Aarya Aroma, a private farm and distillery in Nepal. He will be one of the very first distillers that we visit when we journey to that part of the globe. Kailash holds a very special place in our heart because he was a huge factor in the birth of Stillpoint Aromatics (although I do not think he even knows it).

We have been working with essential oils for over 30 years, and about 6 years ago, we found ourselves dissatisfied with the company that we worked with and decided to import essential oils ourselves. One of the must have oils in our line was Rhododendron (Rhododendron anthopogon). We did a Google search, and many pages in we found Aarya Aroma and Kailash – that was the beginning of our beautiful friendship. Kailash was the very first distiller that we received oils from and we hope to continue our friendship for many more years and for many more Kilograms of his beautiful oils.
