Have ever enjoyed the scent of a flower or plant? Then you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. These naturally occurring, volatile, aromatic compounds are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. Essential oils provide plants with protection against environmental threats and play a role in plant pollination. In addition to their primary benefits to plants and being delightfully fragrant to people, essential oils have historically been used for food preparation, beauty treatment, and health-care practices for centuries. 

How Do I Use Essential Oils?

Essential oils are used for an array of emotional and physical wellness applications. They can be used as a single oil, one at a time or in complex blends in one of three methods:

 

Aromatic

Certain essential oils, when diffused, can be very uplifting, while others can be calming and soothing. Diffusing essential oils can also cleanse and purify the air of unwanted odors.

Topical

Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically, some neat, all can be diluted. (We will cover more of this as we dig deeper and learn more together.) 

Internal

Certain essential oils have a rich culinary history and can be used as dietary supplements for targeted wellness.

 

Essential oils bring a hope and a promise when it comes to taking care of your health naturally. Whether you’re applying essential oils topically, enjoying the aromatic benefits through diffusing, or taking essential oils internally, the positive effects of essential oils are endless.
