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.
