Although referred to as “oils,” essential oils are not like the fatty or “fixed” oils such as olive or coconut oil. Instead, essential oils are volatile, meaning they can quickly evaporate, and are highly aromatic. Found in tiny sacs or globules within various plant parts (including flowers, fruit, leaves, roots and seeds), they are commonly extracted through steam distillation—or in the case of citrus fruits, the rind is cold-pressed (or “expressed”) obtaining an oil that retains the juicy, fresh scent of its fruit of origin.
Essential oils repair tissue, balance hormones, increase circulation, stimulate collagen production and help maintain optimum moisture level of the skin, protecting it from infection.
On a physical level, essential oils could be called probiotic, for they are immune stimulants that support life. These aromatic molecules absorb and penetrate through our nose to the brain, lungs and the skin, passing directly into the bloodstream for immediate and effective results.
On an emotional level, essential oils uplift the spirit, warm the soul, invigorate the senses and stimulate memory, both consciously and subconsciously. Essential oils are a valuable way of cleansing, nourishing, stimulating, and rejuvenating the skin and body, in addition to relieving stress, balancing emotions, addressing pain and creating a sense of harmony and well -being.
