Thanks to a large network of contacts in Austria and Italy ELR cooperates with makers of fine selected oils for an alternative and health-oriented nutrition also with the aim to support niche producers in their effort to corner the market. Excellent olive and kernel oils are on offer together with superior biocertified linseed oil, rape oil, dragon’s head oil and mustard oil produced in Thuringia.
A special role is played by the rather rare elder oil, which is highly recommended for biocosmetic use. Combined with natural brine and woad extract this oil is at the heart of an innovative cosmetic series which boasts surprising qualities. Moreover, elder oil has proved to be remarkably beneficial when it comes to wood protection and bio-gardening. ELR is studying its further use in other fields.
A passionate hobby-horse has grown into an interesting product. The discovery of recipes dating back to the 18th century found in various pharmacies in Thuringia has enabled ELR to distil plant extracts to be transformed into sought-after herbal liqueurs whose astonishing medical effects have already been acknowledged.
Our laboratory is equipped with special preserving distillation facilities thus allowing for the extraction of very sensitive active substances and agents as well as aromatic essences which originate in biomasses.
