cultivating the benefits of plants since 1988!
The new facility in Auzon
In 1988, the pioneering organic aromatherapy and gemmotherapy specialists HELPAC opened its production site in the Livradois-Forez Nature Park, high in the pristine central plateau of the Auvergne. This region of France is blessed with an unspoilt natural heritage and vast botanical diversity supporting a wide range of organically grown plants.
HELPAC produces essential oils (Aromatherapy), mother macerates of buds (Gemmotherapy), aromatic hydrosols, vegetable oils and oily macerates, in addition to organic beauty and care products.Find out more
