Essential oils are aromatic, concentrated plant extracts that are lovingly harvested from farm-grown and wildcrafted plants, herbs, and trees. They are carefully obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping. These pure essential oils are more potent than dried herbs and far more powerful than the botanicals from which they are extracted.
It takes a large amount of plant material to make a small amount of oil. Over one pound of Peppermint plant material is required to make one 15 ml bottle of Peppermint essential oil, approximately 27 square feet of Lavender plants is needed to create one 15 ml bottle of Lavender essential oil, and over 75 Lemons go into one 15 ml bottle of Lemon essential oil.
Essential oils are volatile, meaning they evaporate quickly when they are exposed to open air. This allows us to breathe in and enjoy the benefits of their powerful aroma!
Essential oils are not a new health fad, they have rich history and have been used for thousands of years for their emotionally and spiritually uplifting properties, their ability to support overall being, promote relaxation, and for cosmetic purposes. Essential oils were used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Europeans, and Chinese. In fact, oils are mentioned in many historical texts and are well documented for their uses and benefits in ancient times.
