Essential oils are the very essence of a plant. Essential Oils can affect us on a physical, mental, emotional and spiritual level – they are the ultimate healing tools!
They come from different parts of the plant whether it be the skin of its fruit, the leaves, roots, bark or seeds of a plant. The plant has secretory cells which secret the oil and when the sun warms the plant the oil vaporises and becomes an aroma molecule we can smell, such as the beautiful scent of a rose. The oil is made up of, on average, 100 chemical components that give the oil different properties like anti-inflammatory, anti-septic, anti fungal etc, allowing us to use them for a wide variety of uses such as treating acne, calming the nervous system or giving us a lift when need extra energy.
