What are Essential Oils?
Essential Oils are the aromatic, volatile
liquid that is within many shrubs, flowers,
trees, roots, bushes, citrus rinds, and
seeds. It’s the liquid that you see oozing
from a plant if you cut or tear it. That
plant liquid is responsible for transporting
nutrients from the roots to the tips of the
leaves and are rich in nutrients and
compounds beneficial to health and vitality.
