Essential Oil

Essential oils are concentrated liquids usually obtained through distillation of plant materials. These oils have been used throughout history in nearly every culture. For example, the Egyptians used large clay pots filled with plant material and water and left them in the sun. As the water heated up, the oil separated and was collected. Cleopatra bathed in the floral water and Princess Nerola is known to have soaked her gloves in the fragrant water from the Neroli flower. These were not concentrated like the oils we have today.

Our high quality essential oils are certified organic or wildgrown. Essential oils are known for their healing properties which can be anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, or anti-viral. Many have anti-inflammatory properties useful in conditions like asthma, arthritis and gout. For some ideas on how to use essential oils, click on "Using Aromatherapy at Home" in the main menu.
