Our company based in Quebec (Canada) is specialized in the extraction and purification of bioactive ingredients. We have a large research and development department that allows rigorous analysis and characterization of our products. A meticulous production of essential oils combined with our scientific platform create products with an incomparable quality. Therefore, we can guaranty that our essential oils are 100% organic, pure, natural and chemotyped.
LABRADOR TEA is an evergreen shrub that grows from Greenland to Canada. It was at the top of the list of plants designated by First Nations healers for their therapeutic benefits. It is now scientifically proven that this plant is rich in bioactive molecules.
BALSAM POPLAR is a deciduous tree that is widespread in the Boreal Forest, particularly in the north. It takes its name from its very aromatic resinous buds with the scent of balm. Spring buds were often used to prepare medicinal ointments by First Nations healers.
SWEET GALE is a small shrubby plant found in North America and Europe. First Nations used its leaves and fruits to season and preserve their food and to repulse insects.
JACK PINE is a North American conifer mostly found in the eastern Boreal Forest. It is the most widely distributed pine tree in Canada. First Nations healers used most parts of this tree for the preparation of remedies, especially for respiratory issues and to cure cuts.
BLACK SPRUCE is the most common tree in Canada, mostly found in the eastern Boreal Forest. First Nations healers have been using different parts of the tree for their remedies. An old method of extraction allowed them to prepare needle oil that they were using as a natural medecine for hundreds of years.
BALSAM FIR is one of our best-known conifers in Boreal Forests. It is an emblematic tree. This tree is traditionally used by First Nations healers to treat numerous health issues like cold, cough, digestive and urinary problems.
The Boreal Forest covers more than half of the Canadian territory hosts to over one hundred thousand species of plants, animals and other organisms. Essential oils from Synéova are manufactured in the heart of Quebec Boreal Forest, in Saguenay-Lac-St-Jean. Approximately two million hectares are exploited, offering a great diversity in wild plant species. This proximity to freshly harvested raw material allows superior categorization and higher standards in quality of products.
Scientific approach & biological benefits
There is a current health trend that involves activities in the woods for well-being. In connection with this “forest therapy”, there is a growing interest for the positive impact of some molecules secreted profusely by trees such as terpenes. Those from a large and diverse class of organic compounds produced by a variety of plants, particularly conifers and citrus fruits. Because of their high volatility, they constitute the fragrant principles of plants and they may protect plants from harmful insects and microorganisms. For humans, the scientific community attributes important health benefits to a number of terpenes important health benefits. For example, vitamin A is a well-known compound of the terpene family.
Main biochemical families
Our essential oils are rich in terpenes. They mainly contain monoterpenes and also sesquiterpenes, esters, ketones and terpene alcohols in appreciable quantities. Boreal essential oils are unique. Their profiles reveal a wide distribution of various compounds. This great complexity gives them multiple uses and potentiates positive synergies between constituents.
Starting from the chromatographic data, we make a rigorous analysis of each essential oil based on the active molecules they contain and their chemical families, which have scientifically studied biological activities. This analytical work allows us to present in this document the properties and therapeutic potential of each of our essential oils.
Biochemical Families & Benefits
Monoterpenes are recognized for their beneficial effect on the respiratory tract. They are decongestant, expectorant, mucolytic and anti-infectious. Monoterpenes rich essential oils are ideal for winter ailments such as cold, flu and respiratory infections. They are also excellent as air sanitizers to remove germs in the environment. Monoterpenes also have interesting anti-inflammatory, analgesic and digestive actions. Some of them are excellent antioxidants. As far as general well-being is concerned, they elevate the mood and bring energy. Sesquiterpenes and sesquiterpenols are precious uncommon compounds in essential oils. Sesquiterpenes have very diverse applications. They are known to regenerate the skin, to heal and to have a soothing and analgesic effects. They are also recognized for their anti-inflammatory, anti-allergic, antispasmodic properties. Sesquiterpenols, on the other hand, have analgesic and soothing effects. Most of them are anti-inflammatory. Moreover, both families show interesting skin benefits. They also act on the venous and lymphatic circulation. Esters have excellent antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory properties. Thus, explaining their ability to reduce muscle and nervous spasms. Furthermore, they have an antalgic effect and reduce swelling. They have a relaxing effect on the mood. Ketones have good mucolytic and antimicrobial effects on the lower respiratory tract. They also have a regenerating power and healing capacity for the skin and mucous. At low doses, they are stimulant for the brain and the body.
