Why, What, and How of essential oils

2. What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are aromatic, concentrated plant extracts that are carefully obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping. When distilled propertly, essential oils can be the most pure and potent form of the plant.


Producing a single bottle of essential oil takes a significant amount of plant material. For example, there is the distillation of over 1 pound of peppermint in a 15 ml bottle of Peppermint essential oil and the oil of more than 75 lemons in a 15 ml bottle of Lemon essential oil!


Essential oils evaporate quickly when exposed to the open air. Each botanical has a volatile profile that gives it a distinct aroma, flavor, and other properties. Plants release these compounds as defense mechanisms to environmental stressors.


For thousands of years, people have reached for the power of plants, using essential oils to uplift them spiritually and emotionally, to support their overall wellness, and for cosmetic purposes. Now you can use essential oils for aromatherapy, in your household solutions, or for personal care; every aspect of your daily life can benefit from a drop or two of your favorite essential oil! throughout the world.
