Essential Oils 101

What Are Essential oils? 

“Essential oils are basically plant extracts. They're made by steaming or pressing various parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce fragrance. It can take several pounds of a plant to produce a single bottle of essential oil. In addition to creating scent, essential oils perform other functions in plants, too.”

How To Use Them

Diffuser

A diffuser is like a humidifier where you fill the container with water and it creates a moist atmosphere better to breathe in but it is meant to hold oils inside. This is the easiest method when it comes to using essential oils. Just add 2-3 drops of your favorite oil inside.

Topically

Topical use where I find to be most beneficial can be a bit tricky at times. When applying essential oils to your skin you must dilute it with a carrier oil. Carrier oils can be any organic oil of your choosing. I prefer coconut oil. Adults should add 2-3 drops of oil to 1 oz of carrier oil and apply it to the skin.
