What are Essential Oils?

Simply put, essential oils are the life force of plants; their internal juices. They are to plants what blood is to all living beings. Blood helps to oxygenate, regulate and heal our bodies in times of stress or injury. The same applies to essential oils and the plant source they are derived from.

Essential Oils help to support our body, mind, emotions and spirit in many ways.

They have been used in many cultures and civilizations, medicinally dating back 5,000 years.

The term Aromatherapy came about in the 1920’s, by Dr. Rene Gattefosse – a French chemist. Today, Aromatherapy has become a very well known way of drug-free healing.

Here is an excerpt:

“Drugs and oils work in opposite ways. Drugs toxify. Oils detoxify. Drugs clog and confuse receptor sites. Oils clean receptor sites. Drugs depress the immune system. Oils strengthen the immune system. Antibiotics attack bacteria indiscriminately, killing both the good and the bad. Oils attack only the harmful bacteria, allowing our body’s friendly flora to flourish.” David Stewart, Ph.D., R.A., The Chemistry of Essential Oils, 2005.

I have been using Essential Oils in my personal life, and professional practice since 1994. The amazing benefits that I myself and my clients have received are simply phenomenal!
