WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are highly concentrated, aromatic essences of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, resins and flowers. They are the plant's "immune system" protecting the plant from disease, providing nutrients and helping to repel insects. Essential Oils are primarily extracted through careful steam distillation (also through cold pressing) so that the important constituents of the oils remain intact. Even though essential oils seem to be a popular trend lately, they have been used to support health and wellness for thousands of years, with their use dating back to Bible times.
On average, each essential oil contains over 100 medicinal components with more being discovered every day. These components also change even amongst the same species of plant. 1 drop contains 40 million trillion molecules that affect the body at the cellular level.
Did you know we use essential oils a lot in every day life? They are used to flavor foods and can be found in things like toothpaste, mouthwash, perfumes and skin care products. But not all oils are created equal. Oils found in food and cosmetics are typically something that is synthetic. Because of this, your body processes these synthetic oils as toxins, making it hard to break down or it is stored in fat cells. These types of synthetic oils work against your body.
