What are essential oils?

  • Naturally occurring volatile aromatic compounds
  • Found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants
  • Protect plants against environmental threats and provide beneficial properties
  • Highly concentrated when distilled for purity, potency, and efficacy
  • Used historically for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

Every single oil has its own functions, so I could give a hundreds of examples... here is three examples:

ORANGE

  • Cleanse and purify your home environment
  • Add to water for a burst of flavor
  • Diffuse for a revitalizing aroma.

 FRANKINCENSE

  • Supports healthy cellular function
  • Promotes feelings of relaxation
  • Helps reduce appearance of skin imperfections.

MELALEUCA

  • Commonly known as Tea Tree oil
  • Helps reduce acne, and a natural cleanser
  • May be used for allergies.

How do I use essential oils?

AROMATIC

Essential oils, when diffused or inhaled, can be very stimulating, calming, or soothing; diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air.

TOPICAL

Essential oils can be safely applied for massage or topical benefit.

INTERNAL

Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.
