The agricultural holding Puress.oil was founded in 2010 by chemical and biological laboratory technician and herbalist Martina Malalan. It was born out of love for indigenous aromatic plants, which have countless precious therapeutic properties. They have always been used as medicines and, most importantly, as ingredients in the local cuisine to satisfy all the senses with their distinctive flavours, scents and aromas.
Our activity was born out of a passion for the plants' intense and unique aromatic profiles and the desire to extract their noble, precious and fragrant essences.
The essence is the plant's soul«: this is the motto behind our company's name. Puress.oil stands for pure essential oils – some of the most precious substances nature has to offer.
The mission of the PURESS.OIL company is to bring back into use and improve fields and gardens that have been abandoned for decades by promoting innovative production methods. Our company is the first agricultural holding marketing herbal products on the Karst plateau surrounding the town of Trieste, an area rich in natural resources with deep-rooted values related to the land, culture and traditions.
Our aim is to revive ancient traditions and develop an innovative line of unique and high-quality products. Not only do these values influence our company's vision, but they also have an impact on its philosophy and work ethics. In fact, we operate fully respecting nature.
The Karst. A barren, rocky, calcareous land with few arable surfaces. A place with little fertile land that is very precious. Fertile plots of land are often scattered here and there and delimited by dry stone walls, which sometimes makes it difficult to reach them by agricultural vehicles. This is why often manual work is the only alternative.
Thus, our skilled and experienced staff is our strength and this shows in all the phases of production: from sowing to the finished product, which is taken care of down to the smallest detail.
