Natural Essential Oils

Discover the power and benefits of natural essential oils in this comprehensive guide. From the origins of these aromatic wonders to their versatile uses, learn about the fascinating world of essential oils and the impact they can have on your wellbeing.

What are Natural Essential Oils?

Essential oils are volatile, aromatic compounds extracted from various parts of plants such as flowers, leaves, bark, stems, roots, and even fruits. They represent the essence of the plant, carrying its scent, taste and therapeutic properties. Essential oils have been used for centuries in various traditions such as aromatherapy, alternative medicine, perfumery, and even flavoring in food and drink.

How are Essential Oils Extracted?

There are four key methods of extraction used to obtain essential oils:

  1. Steam Distillation - The most common method, which uses high-pressure steam to extract oil from the plant material.
  2. Cold Pressing - Commonly used for citrus oils, this method involves mechanically pressing the rinds to release the oils.
  3. CO2 Extraction - This relatively new method uses carbon dioxide under pressure to extract the oil, producing the purest essential oils.
  4. Enfleurage - A rare technique used primarily for delicate flowers, where the botanicals are pressed into a natural fat to absorb the oils before being separated with a solvent.

  • Do a patch test before using a new oil to ensure you don't have an adverse reaction.
  • Consult a professional or guidebook for proper dilution ratios, especially when using oils for children or pregnant women.
  • Not all oils are suitable for direct inhalation or ingestion. Always refer to a trusted source or professional for guidance on the proper usage of an oil.
  • Keep essential oils out of reach of children and pets.

Imagine coming home after a long, stressful day at work. You fill your diffuser with water and add a few drops of lavender and chamomile essential oils before turning it on. As the soothing scents fill the room, you feel a sense of calm wash over you. With each breath, the relaxation deepens, and the stress from the day fades away.
