What Are Essential Oils?

If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have long been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices.

How Do I Use Essential Oils?

Essential oils are used for a very wide range of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used a single oil at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:

Aromatic

Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very stimulating, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.

Topical

Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically.

Internal

Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.

Essential oils are both exciting and promising when it comes to taking care of your own and your family’s health. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are boundless.

That’s why you’ll want to ensure that the essential oils you are using are capable of delivering on their promise. You’ll want to make sure that you are choosing essential oils for their potency and their purity.

Where do I get essential oils?

These days, essential oils are sold in many stores, both online and commercial. How do you know if you’re buying the right essential oils? Just because the bottle reads “100% natural” or “pure” doesn’t necessarily mean that it is the best quality. The essential oil industry is quickly growing and unfortunately there are many companies selling less-than-exceptional quality oils. The best way to purchase the highest quality oils is from the supplier themselves, PLEASE CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE

Truth is…they actually are quite affordable once you break it down. But think about this for a moment…high quality products do cost a little more right?

I wanted to share with you the cost of high quality essential oils per drop. I thought that by breaking it down (for the top 10 oils) you may see how affordable they really are!

One 15ml bottle of high quality essential oil contains approximately 250 drops. The recommended dosing is generally 1-2 drops because they are 50-70× more powerful than herbs. These oils are highly concentrated, powerful and as you can see price per drop they cost far less than traditional medicine.
