What are essential oils?
Essential oils are the fragrant plant materials within different plant cells, extracted by a physical process, such as steam distillation, from the plant. Essential oils are more potent than dried herbs and they are the ultimate in natural healthcare. Ancient Egyptians, Chinese medicine and the Indian science of Ayurveda relied upon the power of essential oils from plants to maintain the health of the mind and body.Each essential oil contains hundreds of antibacterial, anti viral natural constituents that have the ability to enter the body through the olfactory system. They are easily absorbed through the skin, and can benefit the nerve and lymphatic system. Essential oils have more to offer than just smelling good – essential oils have therapeutic, psycho-emotional and energetic effects.
