What are Essential oils?
Essential oils play key roles in reproductive, protective, and regenerative processes. They are aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, leaves, and other parts of plants. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk in a field of lavender, or the smell of freshly cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, the compounds in essential oils defend plants against insects, environmental conditions, and disease. They are also vital for a plant to grow, live, evolve and adapt to its surroundings. These are the very benefits we receive when using them ourselves!
