Scientists agree that essential oils may perform more than one function in living plants. In some cases they seem to be a part of the plant's immune system. In other cases they may simply be end-products of metabolism. Essential oils contain hundreds of organic constituents, including hormones, vitamins and other natural elements that work on many levels.
They are 75 to 100 times more concentrated than the oils in dried herbs. All the countries of the world provide essential oils, making aromatherapy a truly global therapy. Not all Oils are Created EqualSome plants, like rose and jasmine, contain very little essential oil.
Their important aromatic properties are extracted using a chemical solvent. The end product, known as an absolute, contains essential oil along with other plant constituents. Though not a true essential oil, absolutes are commonly used for fragrancing cosmetic products like fine perfumes.

People who truly appreciate the qualities of pure essential oils consider each drop a precious jewel to be savored, enjoyed and protected.
Essential oils absorb into the fluid surrounding the cells beneath the skin's surface for a variety of effects including deep cleansing, nourishing, rejuvenating and balancing. Essential oils also diffuse into the air to provide olfactory benefits. Extraction of Essential OilsTo extract essential oils in the most effective manner while preserving their therapeutic benefits, they are either distilled or expressed.
