The products have everything you need, but nothing extra. Authenticity, purity and experience are the starting point for everything.
Osmia Finland was established in 1989 by a Chemistry Doctor and Nature Enthusiast Eero Vänttinen. Eero was born in a small village in western Finland in the late 50’s. As a child he lived close to nature, cultivating plants and wandering around the local forests and fields. Already at age between 10-15 years, and having a brain of a scientist rather than a coltish boy, Eero spent hours and hours educating himself about different characteristics and latin names of wild flowers and plants.
Later on, as a chemistry student at the university, and after accumulating wide knowledge of flower and plant fragrances, he started to develop his own fragrance oils at home.
The first products were Sauna aromas. Eero packed his scent bottles on his bicykle and sold them at the local market place and giftshops nearby. His home made products raise immedeate popularity, and the repute spread rapidly with word of mounth.
