What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the natural oils found in plants that give them their distinct smells, protect the plant and help with pollination. These oils come from the flowers, seeds, bark, stems and roots of the plant.
The same elements that help protect plants can also be used by people to support our own health and well-being, and have been used throughout history for a wide range of physical and emotional needs. Clearly they work, since essential oil usage can be traced back to ancient civilisations such as the Egyptians!
Essential oils are safe for our whole family (even our furry and feathered friends!) when used correctly, and are an effective and natural option to introduce in our homes, with one drop being all that is needed for powerful benefits to our well-being.
Some ways you can use essential oils include in your beauty routine, to clean your home naturally, to flavour food and to improve your mood.
