What is an essential oil? In the most basic of terms an essential oil is a highly concentrated plant extract.
Some essential oils come from seeds while many others are extracted from the leaves of the plant. Because essential oils are so highly concentrated it takes a large amount of plant to produce just one oil. Essential oils are incredibly powerful due to this high concentration, so a little bit goes a long way.
Before using essential it’s important to educate yourself! Knowing what essential oils work best for various uses, which essential oils should not be used around children or even in the sun, and how to store oil is vital to safe essential oil usage.
With knowledge on your side, you can put your essential oils to work in your home. Remember, a little bit of oil goes a long way.
