Essential Oils

What Are Essential Oils?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

How Do I Use Essential Oils?

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. You can use one oil at a time or blend several oils together in one of three methods:

Aromatic – Aromatherapy

Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be calming or soothing, while others can be very stimulating. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.

Topical – Skin Application

Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.


Internal – Taken Orally

Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.
