What is an essential oil?
Essential oils are simply a concentrated form of the oils found
naturally in the flowers, leaves, bark, stem, seeds, and other parts
of plants. When the oils are extracted, they maintain the
characteristic fragrance, or essence, of that plant and have been
used for thousands of years by cultures all over the world for their
pleasant and sometimes powerful fragrances and properties.
