What Are Essential Oils

The cultivation of health and wellness seeking joy in life is the story of essential oils.

Plant symbiosis taught our ancestors how to use plants together from the cooking pot to the healers basket. Formulaic explorations of the elements with plants has lead evolving technologies from alchemy to chemistry to industry. For centuries essential oils have been highly prized for their abundant attributes to culture.

Essential Oils are created by feeding steam through a “charge” of enclosed organic matter. The aromatic vapor flash cools, condensing to liquid form which contains the pure plant chemistry known as essential oil.

Scientific studies show that common chemical compounds found in many essential oils can be used for therapeutic applications and household needs. Essential oils can contain up to 50,000 chemo-types of which only a few hundred can be isolated and analyzed. Some natural chemical types occurring in our essential oils include: Phellandrene, Camphor, alpha/beta Pinene, Camphene, b-Myrcene, Bornyl acetate, Terpinene, Limonene, Sabinene, and p-Cymene.

To begin with: Death his Eminence always eminent. To live this way is to die. We give ourselves to Love making giving birth to Death. In the ecstasy of pleasures passion to fully immerse the selves into the oblivion of experience. OH! His eminence…the King of Spades wed to the Queen of Hearts. Digging deeper in all times. Rhymes with comingling of incense billowing sacred texts to never be read but followed. Hallowed be thy name oh weary Death. Let me give you a shoulder to rest on and by the way my name is Life. Together we hold each other in Loves Grief.  There is nothing to be accounted for in a life well lived. Here lies the secret for the living. To begin with. In the beginning there was a verse, then a song and dance man came along and gave it all away. There is nothing secret to a life well lived. To begin with. When the rain turns to snow and the embers glow in the reflection of your lovers eyes, the heeding of the hours lead to the field of flowers. T’is here where we lay next to the stream of dreams. Cup your hands and drink….quench your thirst for memory and feel the cold water permeate your body. All is Holy & Art thou. Dance your life away and learn the final song. To begin with….
