WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils have become extremely popular worldwide, but what exactly are they?
In short, essential oils are concentrated liquid plant extracts used for aromatic and wellness purposes. They are called “essential” because they contain the essence of a plant.
Essential oils can come from a variety of plant sources, including flowers, grasses, fruits, roots, trees, and leaves. These are either cold pressed or distilled to produce the oils.
WHY USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils have many benefits and uses that vary according to the oil. Just some of the benefits include being used to calm the nerves, uplift the senses or to help aid sleep.
Of course, they smell really good too and some use them for just that!
HOW CAN I USE ESSENTIAL OILS?
The three recommended and safest ways to use essential oils are diffusion, inhalation and household. Diffusing them with a diffuser is by far the safest way to use them.
It is important to know how to use your essential oils safely. Check out our upcoming blog posts for more info or attend one of our Workshops, coming soon!
HOW TO STORE MY ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils are volatile compounds. They are sensitive to heat and oxygen, and can go bad quickly if they are not cared for. Always store your oils in a cool, dark place, with the lid tightly capped.
