What Are Essential Oils?
An essential oil is referred to as the “life blood” of the plant. It is an aromatic, volatile liquid within plant parts such as branches, fruits, shrubs, bark, needles, flowers, roots, bushes and seeds. When carefully and properly extracted through low pressure, low temperature steam distillation or by cold expression, essential oils contain from 80- 300 chemical constituents and are 100-10,000 times more concentrated and far more potent than the herb form.
