What are essential oils?

Essential oils are aromatic, volatile liquids that are found within many shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes and seeds. Sometimes called the “life blood” of the plant. Most essential oils are extracted from the plant through the process of steam distillation.

How to use essential oils

Mix 2-8 drops of essential oil with water into a locket. The locket breaks apart the oil into tiny molecules and disperses them through the air.

Using essential oils topically is another way many people get the benefits of it. Because of their molecular structure, essential oils are rapidly absorbed by the skin. When applied topically, it takes about 20 minutes for an oil to affect every cell in the body. The oil is then metabolized within a few hours.
