Essential Oils have long been used across the globe
for a number of things. Some people believe that
certain oils have mystical properties and have used
them in magical rites and ceremonies. Other believe
that some oils have powerful healing properties for
mind, body and spirit.
Whatever you believe it's a fact that aromatherapy
has become very popular world wide and more and
more people are turning back to alternative
medicines in which essential oils and plant extracts
play a large part.
Essential oils are extracted from various plant parts like flowers, leaves, stems, roots, seeds, bark, resin or fruit rinds. Each plant contains only a tiny percentage of essential oil, so several kilos of the plant are harvested to extract a few millilitres of oil. Therefore, these oils are highly concentrated and usually dispensed in drops, or mixed with a base oil for massages. They contain hundreds of therapeutic constituents and are used in personal products, aromatherapy, and for sanitary and healthcare reasons.
