What are Essential Oils?
An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled by steam or water from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils contain the true essence of the plant it was derived from. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a long way.
Why use Essential Oils
Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Most essential oils are clear, but some oils such as patchouli, orange and lemongrass are amber or yellow in color.
Note: Be sure to purchase high quality, pure essential oils! There are essential oils that contain 5 to 10 percent oil and the rest is made with a synthetic filler.
Are you concerned that your household cleaners aren’t so clean? Do your children have allergies? Do these cleaners make you sick? If you answered “Yes,” you probably need to forget about using conventional cleaners like Lysol, etc which are formulated with harsh chemicals.
Essential Oils are an awesome natural, non-toxic alternative!
Many mainstream household products from skin care, toothpastes, hand soap to household cleaning products like spray disinfectants, dish washing detergent, and laundry detergent contain toxic ingredients that research indicates may be harmful even in small amounts.
