Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils

Essential oils — the life force of the plant, the plant’s soul. They are the volatile, aromatic liquid extracted from flowers, grasses, leaves, fruits, bark, roots, and resins. These highly concentrated extracts contain hormones, vitamins, antibiotics and antiseptics. Each has an intense and complex chemical make-up. This molecular structure will actually change the chemical compound of the air around you. They stimulate the neurotransmitters in the brain related to memory, sexual feelings, emotions, moods and creativity. Entering and leaving the body with great efficiency, they leave no toxins behind. Essential oils awaken the self-healing capabilities innate in each one of us.

Essential Oils are highly concentrated. One drop of pure rose oil is equal to 30 roses, and equivalent to 25 cups of an herbal infusion. Less is really best. If you use too much oil it may have contradictory effects. Direct application of essential oils – with the exception of a few – is not recommended. Essential oils need to be diluted in a carrier or base oil, also called fatty oils.
