What are Essential Oils

Pure Essential Oils are a concentrated liquid containing aroma compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants.

 

Essential Oils are also known as “ethereal oils” or simply as the “oil of the plant” from which they were extracted. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived.

 

Essential Oils are generally extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include expression, solvent extraction, resin tapping and cold pressing.

 

 

 

 

 

Essential Oils are used in perfumes, cosmetics and other products for flavouring and scent, beauty treatment, food preparation and many other applications. They can also be used for for health-care practices for a wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications to help maintain a healthy mind and body.

 

Due to the concentrated nature of Essential Oils, it seems understandable that any plant that is grown with chemical based pesticides or herbicides will produce an essential oil that contains a certain amount of these chemicals in their essence. Therefore choosing a good quality Essential Oil is very important to guarantee best therapeutic effect.

 

Some oils are synthetic which means they were created in a laboratory. Although a lot cheaper they are often a blend of various chemical compounds, many of which are common allergens or have links to hormone disruptions. They smell nice and mimic the aroma of Essential Oils but they don't offer any therapeutic benefits at all.
