Have you ever smelled fresh lavender and felt relaxed? Have you tasted or smelled fresh-cut mint it in a salad or a smoothie and felt refreshed? Then you have experienced the therapeutic benefit of essential oils.
Essential oils are the life-force of plants; basically their internal juices. They may be distilled from the seeds, bark, leaves, stem, roots, flowers or fruit of the plant.
This is an easy way to look at it: The essential oil is to a plant as blood is to a human.
Just like our blood helps to oxygenate, regulate and heal our bodies, essential oils do the same for the plant source they are extracted from. They contain all the goodness that protects and maintains the plant, and we can use them to help support our own bodies' health and wellness.
