What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are distilled from the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, seeds, and other parts of a variety of aromatic plants. Besides the beautiful aromas we enjoy, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their therapeutic benefits. Today, increasing scientific awareness and changing paradigms toward wellness in body, mind, and emotions are driving a rediscovery of essential oil health applications.
Even though an essential oil may be listed as pure, therapeutic, or organic, if the right species or part of the plant is not used, or if the plant has not been grown in the ideal environment, harvested at the right moment, or distilled within exacting temperature and pressure margins, it will not provide a predictable therapeutic result. Testing to ensure both purity and potency is crucial in receiving the desired benefits.
High quality essential oils represent a safe, effective, and affordable complement to any health care regimen. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends depending on your experience and desired results.
