About Essential Oils

Essential Oils are true, undiluted essences extracted directly from a variety of flowers, fruits, leaves, barks, roots, herbs and spices.  In other words, they are the 'essence' or vital life force of the plant or tree. 

It is important to harvest the plants, flowers and herbs at exactly the right time.  Now you can begin to imagine the time and effort taken to produce these wonderful therapeutic oils.   Each oil has a different chemical composition depending on the plant or tree from which it has been extracted.  This means that each oil has different properties, aromas and even colors.  They are highly concentrated and very rarely used neat.  These oils are usually mixed with carrier oils, lotions, creams or water.
