WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are highly concentrated natural oils, extracted from plants, flowers, wood, bark, roots or seeds. They are valued for their wonderful cosmetic properties, and help to boost physical, emotional and spiritual well-being.
They are used extensively in traditional medicinal systems and in aromatherapy, which is a natural mean to help our body cope with stress, anxiety and tension which are all contributing factors or causes of other illness and diseases.
BENEFITS OF ESSENTIAL OILS
Essential oils each have their own unique therapeutic powers and health benefits, and they are convenient and easy to use.
They have the ability to penetrate skin and cell membranes, and it is this ability that makes them highly effective. That is why when used in combination with massages, they can assist with minor aches and pains.
More Than A Scent
These aromatic essential oils are not just simply a set of nice scents, and are different from fragrance oils (manufactured scents). A synthetic fragrance oil is an aroma oil that mimics a plant. These are manufactured in labs, and used in various products like soaps and candles. Though they might smell somewhat like the real thing, that’s all they do. They do not have carry the same therapeutic benefits that essential oil brings.
