What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are a highly concentrated plant compound that can be found in may shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. They give plants their scent, protect them from environmental conditions, strengthen their immune response and even assist with pollination. As the name suggests, essential oils are the most powerful part of the plant and without them the plant simply wouldn’t exist.
Pure essential oils are incredibly powerful and offer an all-natural alternative to synthetic products. From cooking to household cleaning, personal hygiene and healing, essential oils can be used in a variety of ways. With a wide range of essential oils available, you can easily tailer each product to suit your individual needs.
How Do You Use Them?
Enjoy the beautiful aroma of each essential oil by diffusing, directly inhaling or adding your oil to hot water. Essential oils that are used aromatically offer a plethora of wellness benefits such as air purification, relieving stress, improving sleep, neutralizing odours and much more.
Use essential oils as flavouring for your favourite meal, as a dietary supplement or in your beverages. Make sure to always check the label of an essential oil to ensure it is safe for ingestion.
Dilute your essential oils with a carrier oil and apply to the skin directly or with a roller bottle. Topical application allows the oil to easily penetrate your skin and transport throughout your body within minutes.
