WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS???
You may have heard of essential oils, seen someone diffusing them, or even sampled some while shopping at your local health food store. Maybe you thought they smelled nice, but the idea that they have therapeutic benefits seems a little far-fetched or hokey. How can a tiny drop of anything have any real impact? Believe me, I thought the same thing! Essential oils truly are gifts from the earth, 100% a product of Mother Nature. They are natural aromatic compounds found in the flowers, seeds, stems, bark and other parts of plants. When you slice through the peel of an orange, rub a fresh peppermint leaf between your fingers, or inhale the scent of a rose, you are experiencing essential oils. After distillation or cold pressing, these tiny drops are highly concentrated and extremely powerful. A little goes a long way!
