An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils, contrary to the use of the word "oil" are not really oily-feeling at all. Most essential oils are clear, but some oils such as patchouli, orange and lemongrass are amber or yellow in color.
An essential oil contains the true essence of the plant it was derived from. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a long way!
Historically, essential oils have played a prominent role in everyday life. With more than 200 references to aromatics, incense, and ointments throughout the Bible, essential oils are said to be used for anointing and healing the sick.
In aromatherapy, the healing powers of essential oils are incredible. Many of the oils used in our products have antibiotic, antiseptic, and other healing properties.
