What is an Essential Oil?
We get so many questions about what exactly is an essential oil so we thought it would be great to explain. An essential oil is a volatile liquid that is extracted through the process of distillation from the seed, root, bark, stem, leaf, fruit, flower, resin or wood of a plant. In literal terms, essentials oils are the ultra-concentrated essence of that plant. Once extracted, these oils can then be used for inhalation, ingestion, absorption and for creating all kinds of products. These oils have a lot of health benefits. The are delicate so they should never be heated.
Using them with a cold air diffuser will provide the best results!!
