What are Essential Oils?
First off, they are not really ‘Oils’! They are in fact the natural, distilled essence of plants that contain fragrant elements. Plus, they are not even ‘oily’! They are called ‘essential’ because they contain the unique fragrance of the plant they are taken from.
What is most attractive about essential oils, apart from their very obvious perfume, is that they are possibly the most potent source of natural medicinal inputs your medicine cabinet can have! They are also used in cosmetics & foods, but that’s another story.
As a firm believer in holistic living and a healthy lifestyle, you would really benefit from getting to know more about these ‘oils’.
