Plants cover the Earth in a variety of different shapes, sizes, colors, and scents. Many of these plants contain compounds that typically can’t be seen with the naked eye—they hide within the roots, flowers, seeds, bark, or other areas of the plant. These compounds are known as essential oils. They are highly concentrated, making them extremely potent.
Also referred to as volatile aromatic compounds, essential oils give a plant its aroma, protect it from harsh environmental conditions and insects, and even play a part in plant pollination.
It's pretty crazy to think that Mother Nature hides the keys to our wellness in plain sight. Although there is a ton of science and chemistry behind sourcing and getting the essential oils into the bottles for our ease of use, it doesn't take hardcore training to know how to use essential oils effectively. If you'll allow me to help you with the basics, to understand the safety precautions and application methods, you'll soon learn how easy it is to incorporate essential oils into your everyday life.
Following label instructions, consulting with your healthcare professional(s), and educating yourself about how essential oils work will allow you to be confident and enjoy the vast range of emotional and physical benefits of essential oils.
