What Is An Essential Oil?
Essential oils have been described as the 'blood' of the plant - the 'lifeforce or soul' of the living organism. Their primary purpose is to protect the plant from disease and virus.
Natural Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts obtained through steam distillation or expression from flowers, berries, seeds, roots, barks and citrus rinds. Unlike 'imitation fragrances', essential oils that are sourced exclusively for Aromatherapy are extracted from specific plant species and not synthetically fabricated in a laboratory.
They are clear liquid substances that vary in density, odour intensity and volatility. Despite their name, essential oils are not fatty substances but complex combinations of naturally occurring chemical constituents.
What Do We Do?
We are simply drawing on these known benefits and using them to assist in the promotion of our own health and wellbeing.
How Do You Use Essential Oils?
The most common method of extracting botanical essential oil for the purpose of Aromatherapy is through steam distillation. Other extraction processes employed today include expression or cold pressing (to obtain citrus oils and nut/seed carrier oils), solvent extraction (to obtain absolutes primarily used in perfumery) and infusion.
Carrier oils are exceptionally high grade, nourishing vegetable oils to use on their own or as a base for preparing your Aromatherapy blends. They are obtained by cold pressing, usually from nuts, kernels and seeds.
