What is an essential oil?

    Plants contain complex and powerful substances known as essential oils.  These are aromatic liquids derived from shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds.  These distinctive components defend plants from insects, harsh environmental conditions, and disease.  They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt to its surroundings.  Referred to as the essence of the plant, pure essential oils not only protect the plant but also determine its aroma.

Essential oils have been used throughout time dating back to 4500 BC.  From perfumes and pleasant aromas to embalming and medicinal purposes, essential oils were used in everyday life for centuries.  In modern days, research show that pure essential oils can provide similar benefits to humans and animals that they give to plants.

Importance of Quality

Many oils, touted as essential oils, are derived with harsh chemicals, diluted, or copied and produced in a lab.  Cheap copies bring cheap results and have the potential to be toxic.  Therefore, it is imperative to take care in choosing high-quality essential oils.
