The Importance of Essential Oils..What are they?
Essential oils are the work-horses of natural remedies. Most people just don’t know the potential these oils have! In fact, I dare say if the general public knew how powerful these oils truly are, they might stop buying over-the-counter items, from painkillers to sleep aid.
Essential oils aren’t technically oils. Let me clarify...by that I mean: they do not contain fatty acids that we would consider actual oil. Alternatively, they’re highly concentrated plant constituents with potent medicinal and cosmetic qualities. The oil bears the name of the plant from which it is derived; for example, rose oil or peppermint oil. Such oils were called essential because they were thought to represent the very essence of odor and flavor.
