What Is An Essential Oil?
Essential Oils are naturally occurring, aromatic compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. If you have ever enjoyed the scent of a rose, you’ve experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells, protect plants (the plants immune system) and play a role in plant pollination. How cool that we can use those same properties that protect a plant to support our own immune systems? Essential oils also have a huge variety of uses including promoting clear airways, soothing skin irritations, soothing occasional muscle and joint discomfort, supporting healthy digestion and so much more.
