Essential Oils 101

Discover the benefits and safe uses of essential oils.

What are Essential Oils?

Pure Essential oils are concentrated, aromatic plant extracts and can be used aromatically, topically or internally. They work quickly and take 22 seconds to reach your brain, 2 minutes to reach your bloodstream and within 22 minutes they reach every cell in your body. Essential oils are NOT new. They were used aromatically, in cosmetics, ointments, and medicinal and herbal preparations as early as 2000 BC by the Chinese, the country of India and later by the Greeks and the Egyptians. Oils were even found in the tomb of King Tut, the Egyptian pharaoh! Essential oils are powerful supporters of physical, mental and emotional health, can be used to make non-toxic cleaning AND personal products for your skin and hair as well as support for discomfort, mood, sleep and overall well-being and health.
