A LITTLE BACKGROUND
For centuries, aromatic plants have been used in traditional medical systems as well as households to enhance well-being, bring forth spiritual awakening, and assist with cleansing and purification rituals.
With the advent of steam distillation as an efficient way to extract these concentrated aromatic compounds, essential oils have continued to be researched and slowly integrated into daily life. We are learning more and more each day about these potent plant extracts, and the myriad of ways they can support our wellness and enhance our quality of life.
Essential oils are extracted from precious plant material that required land, air, water, and lots of energy, care, and hard work to create. As more and more people are using and loving essential oils, sustainability is an issue to be mindful of. When it comes to essential oils, use what you need — for your own health as well as that of our planet, less is more.
