Essential Oils Information

WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?

Essential oils capture the “essence” of a plant through distillation or mechanical pressing. Essentially, these oils are concentrated extracts that retain, or magnify the fragrance and effect of their source. Oils from different plants or different parts of the same plant can have very different chemical compositions, which changes the smell, absorption, and effect on the body and mind.

 

HOW DO I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?

While it might seem like there are endless ways to use essential oils, it really boils down to two methods: inhalation and topical application. One of the easiest ways to inhale your essential oils is with a diffuser. It sends your essential oils into the air, allowing you to enjoy the gentle aroma and therapeutic benefits. Essential oils can also be used on the skin, as long as they’re properly diluted in a carrier or lotion first. They can help with a variety of skin issues and even muscle or joint pain.
