Essential Oil Blends

Using essential oils, either singly, or in blends can enhance the quality of life. They add a dimension of sensual experience that affects emotions positively and influence physical well being. This is helpful in times of stress, whatever the cause. Many essential oils have health benefits which are being revealed as researchers continue to explore the ancient uses of the original plants and their current applications in varied uses.

Essential oils are produced by steam distilling plant material. These oils retain many of the plants’ active ingredients but not all of them. They are not identical to the original plant so not all of the properties are the same. Even though many of them smell lovely they are not perfumes and should be treated as concentrates.  Similar oils called absolutes are solvent extractions and should not be used as aromatherapy oils because they can retain solvent residue which may cause allergic reactions.

Essential oils are said to embody the spirit, or essence, of the plants used to produce them. Many cultures consider plants sacred especially those used in healing. For best results, use essential oil blends while focusing attention on a positive thought that expresses harmony of body, mind and spirit.
