What are Essential Oils?

  Essential oils are formed inside aromatic plants and have been used for thousands of years for healing and medicinal purposes. Dating back to ancient times, these oils have been integrated into Greek, Roman, and Chinese medicine because of their tremendous health properties.


  Today essential oils are extracted from seeds and plants through modern distillation or cold pressing methods and conveniently packaged in small dropper-sized bottles. They can be used topically, aromatically, and a few are even used internally. The amazing thing is how quickly they can travel through our body! Essential oil molecules have the unique ability to penetrate cell membranes and diffuse throughout the skin, tissues, and blood. They can travel through the body in minutes whether applied to the skin or inhaled, and are metabolized by the body just like other nutrients. 1
