What are Essential Oils?

In your Premium Starter Kit, you have twelve of the most versatile and popular essential oils that will help you handle just about anything life throws at you.   Essential oils are powerful tools that can support your family’s wellness in a world bombarded by quick-fix, synthetic solutions, that often contain harmful ingredients, to mimic the very properties that nature built into botanicals.  What is an essential oil?  Volatile liquids and natural compounds found in plants, herbs, and trees that are obtained by careful steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping.   Each essential oil contains hundreds of naturally occurring chemical constituents, many of which have been studied for their extensive benefits.  This is what makes an oil so versatile!  Highly concentrated and more potent than the herb, essential oils are also fat-soluble and volatile which makes them readily available for our bodies to use!

These powerful, pure essential oils are not just a new fad or trend; they have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits, from beauty and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use.  You can use oils for aromatherapy, change the atmosphere and mood of any space, support a healthy body, add them to your beauty routine, enhance DIY recipes, and even clean with them!  Every aspect of daily life can benefit from the incorporation of essential oils.

There are three ways to use essential oils: aromatically, topically, and internally.  Each method benefits our body in different ways.  There are three other posts that will go into detail on how to use your essential oils.
