What are Essential Oils?

The most common question I get asked, what are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.

Inside many plants hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural compounds are essential oils.

Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions, and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits. 

How do Essential Oils work?

Frankincense essential OilWhen you open a bottle of pure, unadulterated essential oil, your senses are instantly filled with its potent aroma, even from a distance. What your nose detects are the naturally occurring elements of the essential oil. I love the smell of roses – just beautiful!

Every essential oil varies in its natural makeup, so aromas and benefits are also unique. For example, Lavender oil includes elements that make it effective for soothing skin irritations, reducing anxiousness and feelings of tension, and promoting a restful environment for sleep.

Meanwhile, Frankincense oil supports immune, nervous, and digestive systems, promotes a relaxing atmosphere, and aids in healthy cellular function.

My top selling product is Deep Blue which is great for all sport people. Being a coach this product is amazing for any aches and pains.

Pure essential oils offer an alternative to synthetic products. Essential oils are more than just natural products. Each with a unique chemical makeup, essential oils have so many benefits for the body and mind. Essential oil benefits are determined by the chemistry of the plants. If these natural chemicals are properly extracted, they can be used to help you physically, mentally, and emotionally in your daily life. 

Essential oils have been used by ancient civilizations across the globe for:

  • Aromatherapy
