Essential oils are the essence of a plant, distilled and prepared for either aromatic, topical, or ingestive delivery. They may be derived from the roots, seeds, flowers, or bark of a plant to create concentrated, highly potent therapeutic compounds. In nature, these oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions.
Each essential oil has its own unique chemical makeup, which determines its potential therapeutic effect for the body and mind. Historically, essential oils were used as part of cultural practices and traditions. However, we now have increasing scientific evidence and research showing that essential oils can be effectively and safely used in a wider range of day-to-day practices and routines for powerful natural health benefits. Today, essential oils can be used for cooking, household cleaning, and personal hygiene offering a natural alternative to synthetic products and thus reduce your levels of toxic load and exposure.
