What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are aromatic and volatile liquids extracted from trees, plants and shrubs. The oils are essentially what the plants use to protect themselves from pests and disease, and also to enhance their immune system. In other words, the oils are the “life force” or essence of the plants.
In most cases the oils are removed from plants through the process of steam distillation; although citrus essential oils are cold pressed from the rinds of the fruit and in some cases, some oils are tapped from trees such as copaiba.
Why Use Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils?
When we use essential oils, we receive therapeutic benefits without having to worry about harmful side effects or chemical additives. The body is supported while it comes into balance. But we must ensure that only therapeutic grade essential oils are used that do not contain harmful chemicals.
Using therapeutic grade essential oils can be beneficial to our health. Some benefits are:
Convenient and easy to use
Non-toxic and free of harmful chemicals
Able to cross the blood brain barrier and reach the limbic portion of the brain that controls our emotions, moods and behaviours.
High in antioxidants so they eliminate free radicals and prevent cell mutation
Contain oxygen molecules allowing them to carry nutrients and oxygen to deprived cells
Natural anti-inflammatory and a remedy for pain relief
Create a hostile environment for bacteria, viruses, cancer, fungus and parasites
