Essential oils are the highly concentrated, volatile, aromatic essences of plants. Scientists agree that essential oils may perform more than one function in living plants. In some cases they seem to be a part of the plant’s immune system. In other cases they may simply be end-products of metabolism.
Essential oils contain hundreds of organic constituents, including hormones, vitamins and other natural elements that work on many levels. They are 75 to 100 times more concentrated than the oils in dried herbs. All the countries of the world provide essential oils, making aromatherapy a truly global therapy.
Essential oils, like precious jewelry or fine wine, are gems of nature — the quintessential life force of aromatic plants, sometimes called the “soul” of the plant. People who truly appreciate the qualities of essential oils consider each drop a precious jewel to be savored, enjoyed and protected.
Essential oils absorb into the fluid surrounding the cells beneath the skin’s surface for a variety of effects including deep cleansing, nourishing, rejuvenating and balancing. They also diffuse into the air to provide olfactory benefits.
You may also request Aromatherapy information along with your order. In the information packet it gives information on different ways to use Essential Oil, as well as some information on what some oils help ease. We can also include a dilution chart, upon request.
