Are you wondering just what in the world an essential oil really is? Have you heard about them but aren’t sure of what they do or how they can be beneficial? If that’s the case then don’t worry, we’re here to help you understand it all.
Essential oils have been around for thousands of years and are known to have many different medicinal and health functionalities. They’ve been used in aromatherapy, beauty care, and as a natural medicine. They have many different spiritual and emotionally uplifting properties too.
These oils are considered elements of the plant world. They are located inside of plant life and are found in parts of flowers, scrubs, trees, roots, bark, and seeds. They’re most generally extracted from the plants by means of steam distillation and can also be cold pressed.
They are highly concentrated because of the distillation process and are found to be far more potent than dried herbs. Since they are very complex, consisting of hundreds of unique chemical compounds, they are considered to be very therapeutic. They’re not to be confused with a perfume or fragrance oil, as those provide only fragrance and no therapeutic or natural medicinal properties.
So now that you know a little bit about them, how do you use them? Well, that’s the fun part for sure. They can be diffused aromatically, they can be evaporated, and they can be sprayed, just to name a few way. They can also be applied topically. But that’s all for another day.
