Learning about the volatile oils distilled from plants that are organically grown.

Most people have heard about essential oils, and many have used them. But the “why” of these oils is probably less well known.

What Are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the subtle, aromatic, and volatile liquids extracted from plants. These oils can be extracted from the flowers, seeds, leaves, stems, bark, and roots of herbs, bushes, shrubs, or trees through distillation.

According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and physicians were using these oils to heal the sick thousands of years before Christ. They are the oldest form of medicine and cosmetic known to man and were considered more valuable than gold. There are even 188 references to oils in the Bible. The wise men brought the Christ Child gold, frankincense, and myrrh. (Clinical research now shows that frankincense oil contains very high immune-stimulating properties.) In Exodus God even gives Moses the formula for “a holy anointing oil” (Exodus 30:22-25).

Some of the precious oils which have been used since antiquity for anointing and healing the sick are frankincense, myrrh, galbanum, hyssop, cassia, cinnamon, and spikenard. Science is now beginning to investigate the incredible healing substances and compounds found within essential oils.

It is well recognised that many essential oils exhibit anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, antioxidant, and anti-microbial properties. When used appropriately, these can improve your overall health and wellbeing in a variety of ways. In fact, this is exactly what our organic skincare company was founded on.

The aromatic qualities of essential oils

Essential oils are highly aromatic and therefore, many of the benefits can be obtained by simply inhaling them. This can be done by breathing in the fragrance from the bottle, or they can be diffused into the room. Additionally, they can simply help make your spaces smell beautiful.

When properly diffused, essential oils can be the best air freshener system in the world. They can:

  • Inhibit the growth of mould or fungus.
  • Destroy odours originating from cigarettes, mould, or animals.
  • Help reduce anxiety, boost your mood, and improve sleep.
  • Fill the air with fresh, herbal aromatic scents.
