When I first heard about them, I didn’t know much about them. Truth be told I thought they were a little airy fairy and were just something that smelled good. Man, was I wrong!
Essential oils have enriched lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use.
Essential oils are the aromatic, volatile liquid, found within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. Our pure essential oils are very concentrated, making them far more powerful than the plants they are extracted from.
Each essential oil is a complex structure of hundreds of different constituents that help us live above the wellness line and support our physical and emotional wellbeing.
Oftentimes, essential oils are referred to as the lifeblood of the plant. Just as you have thousands of different types of molecules floating in your bloodstream, plants have thousands of different constituents flowing through their parts as well.
Essential oils have been around for thousands of years with well-documented research supporting their use for physical and emotional wellbeing. If you like science, like I do, then I encourage you to check out essential oils on Pub Med as the information there is all scientific, peer reviewed journal articles, studies and more. It is fascinating!
