WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS AND HOW DO I USE THEM?
Essential oils are the most powerful part of plants and consist of over 100 different natural, organic compounds. They are distilled or cold-pressed from fruits, rinds, flowers, herbs, bushes, trees, roots and resins. Single species, or blended together into synergistic recipes, essential oils provide support for every system in the human body as well emotional and spiritual support. Oils can even be used as an alternative to toxic cleaning chemicals in your home.
The best part? You don't need to be an aromatherapist to use them!
NOT ALL ESSENTIAL OILS ARE CREATED EQUAL.
With limited oversight and labeling restrictions, many companies modify their oils to smell better, dilute them in order to sell them cheaper, use harsh chemicals during distillation, buy the oils from a broker or don't control the farms which grow the plants. All of which reduces the purity and therefore the theraputic benefits you are looking for when using essential oils to live a more natural life.
