Osmia Oy ltd was established 30 years ago by a nature lover chemist Eero Vänttinen. He left his academic career in Turku University to become a perfume specialist and business owner.

Designing fragrances as authentic as possible has been in the very core of Osmia product development ever since. Today, the company operates in central Helsinki. Osmia workshop, known as “the little aroma and soap factory”, ships handmade candles, soaps, shampoos, and sauna-aromas all over Finland and some abroad.

Osmia specializes in nature inspired products and aim to bring you the true essence of Nordic nature.

A nature boy who became a scientist and well-known perfume specialist

The founder of Osmia, Eero Vänttinen was born in a small village in western Finland in the late fifties. As a child he lived close to nature, cultivating plants, and wandering around the local forests and fields. 10-15 years old Eero with the brain of a scientist spent hours educating himself about characteristics and Latin names of wildflowers and plants.

Later, he accumulated wide knowledge of flower and plant fragrances. As a chemistry student in the university, he started to develop his own fragrance oils at home.

The first Osmia products were sauna aromas. Eero packed his scent bottles on his bicycle and sold them at the local marketplace and giftshops nearby. His home-made products raise immediate popularity, and the repute spread rapidly with word of mouth.

When creativity and running a business on your own took over

In the eighties Eero continued his studies at the university up to PhD in chemistry. He started his academic career in parallel continuing the development of new scents. Inspired by his endless curiosity towards nature’s fragrancies, he managed to generate the most authentic scents. Scents such as Peat, Birch leaf or Lilly of the Valley are still among the best sellers of Osmia products.

Soon the product family had grown up by soaps and shampoos. Hence, today Osmia produces close to 150 individual products, containing over forty different fragrances created by Osmia. They cannot be found in any other product in the world.

The beauty of simplicity in design and handmade production

Eero – the “nose” of Osmia, is continuing his lifetime project. He keeps developing new fragrances with the same interest and respect for the nature as he did 30 years ago. Teamwork with his partners Pasi Väistö and Anne Mäkijärvi needs and respects the creativity. They participate in product development and work to promote Eero’s clever work to retailers and big audience.
