What is Essential Oil?

Essential oils are highly concentrated version of the oils in plants. Essential oils are made with a process called distillation using either steam or water. In the distillation process, many parts of the plants, such as seeds, bark, stems, roots, and other parts of the plants, are being used to make this highly concentrated oil. This highly concentrated oil contains the plants’ characteristic fragrance, its healing properties, and other characteristic properties. Essential oils have therapeutic benefits and are used in many ways, such as aromatherapy, sprays, diffusers, baths, mix to your favorite shampoo or lotion, or massaging them directly into the skin.
