Information On Aromatherapy & Essential Oils

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy means to treat with aroma through inhalation. Everything from dust to man has an odor. Aroma is the oldest means of reaching and influencing the deepest human instincts.  Science is just now rediscovering the power of aromatherapy created by essential oils, which are the life blood of the plant kingdom.

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the liquids that are distilled from plants, shrubs, flowers, trees, bushes, and seeds. They contain oxygenating molecules which transport the nutrients to the cells of the body. Without oxygen, nutrients cannot be assimilated, leaving us nutritionally depleted. 

Use and Application of Oils

Throughout history these fragrances have been applied to the body to help manage stress and fatigue, and to restore balance. Essential oils have been used as carriers for nutrients in the body, and have also been diffused to deodorize and purify the home and work environment. Essential oils are available in single and oil blends, oil enhanced herbal supplements, and skin and hair care products.

More About Essential Oils

Essential oils have a bio-electrical frequency.  Everything has an electrical frequency. Essential oils contain a frequency that is several times greater than the frequency of herbs and food.  Clinical research shows that the oils have the highest frequency of any substance known to man. Science is only now discovering these health traditions that were used in ancient times.            

Processing

Processing with low pressure and low temperature are the keys to maintaining the ultimate fragrance and therapeutic value. High pressure, high temperature, rapid processing and the use of solvents or any other chemical will fracture the oil molecule, destroying the therapeutic value and altering the fragrance.

Purity

Producing the purest of oils is very costly and may require several hundred or thousands of pounds of plants to extract one pound of oil. The essential oils are distilled and cultivated from organically grown crops to ensure the finest quality and purest of oils in the world.
