What are Essential Oils
Essential oils are described as volatile material derived by a physical process from odorous plant material of a single botanical form and species.
Where are Essential Oils Found?
Essential oils occur widely in the plant kingdom, not only in the plants, leaves and fruit but also in the roots, stems and in other parts of the plants. Often a plant that produces an essential oil may do so in only one of its parts, such as Jasmine, from the flowers.
The more oil glades or ducts present in the plant, the higher the yield of essential oil, thus the less expensive the cost of the oil.
Most essential oils labels will contain The name of the oil, eg: Lavender & the botanical name eg Lavandula angustifolia.
If they do not contain this information, or it is noted as Fragrant Oil, these are not essential oils. While they produce the same scent as the essential oils, they will not have the same therapeutic benefit of an essential oil.
Essential Oils and Aromatherapy should not replace advice given by a licensed Medical practitioner.
Please Note: I do not sell individual Essential Oils.
