What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the extracts of a plant, a true gift from nature, purified and prepared for you to experience its energy and power in your home.

Hidden inside many plantsūĎĀčwithin roots, seeds, flowers, and leavesūĎĀčare concentrated, highly-potent chemical compounds. These all-natural chemicals are infused with a carrier oil to create aromatic and therapeutic essential oils.

Discovered by our ancestors, the secrets of essential oils have been around for thousands of years. They were commonly used for curing diseases, ceremonial rituals, and scaring away evil spirits.

Today, the ancient traditions of essential oils have evolved into a modern practice called aromatherapy.

How Do Essential Oils Work?

Activating the powers of essential oils through aromatherapy can be achieved by inhaling or applying it to your skin. 




The aromatic and therapeutic properties are deeply immersive and can interact with your body in many ways.

When applied to the skin, essentials have been known to improve skin conditions, help treat the common cold, and encourage healthy digestion.



When inhaling from an aroma diffuser, it has the ability to stimulate areas of your limbic system which is the area of your brain used for emotions, behavior, sense of smell, and long term memory. 




Since essential oils interact with both the mind and body, every experience is unique for different people. From a mood booster in the morning to a positive impact on your health and well-beingūĎĀčthe best way to understand how essential oils work for you is to give them a try.

Add Aromatherapy to Your Home

Aromatherapy is an alternative treatment using the aromas of concentrated essential oils to balance the body and provide alternative healing. It involves oil being evaporated over a candle, or with an aroma diffuser.

You can also add essential oils a bath or taken orally. However, taking essential oil orally is not recommended unless you have first consulted a doctor.

Aromatherapy can be particularly effective for symptoms associated with stress, fatigue, tension, anxiety, and insomnia.
