What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the natural, very concentrated, aromatic liquids that are within trees, flowers, leaves, shrubs, roots, seeds and even grass and are usually extracted through steam distillation.
Essential oils support the plants in their growth and adaptation to the environment as well as play an important role in defending against insects and diseases.
And essential oils are very complex and are made up of hundreds of different, unique chemical compounds.
It requires a large amount of plant material to produce a small amount of essential oil, for example, it takes 2500kg of rose petals to produce 1kg of rose essential oil! Wow!
