Pure Essential Plant Oils

Pure essential oils

Pure essential oils are known as the life force of the plant. These oils are approximately 70 times more concentrated than the plant or herb they come from. Extracted from leaves, roots, resins, flowers, grasses and fruits they have the ability to penetrate the skin to produce therapeutic benefits and also affect us emotionally and mentally with their powerful aromas.

When purchasing pure essential oils, make sure they use this name on the label and don’t say ‘essence’ or ‘fragrance’. A good brand will list the botanical name, plus possibly a batch number and expiry date. Essential oils vary in price – Lavender, for example, s quite reason able, while Frankincense or Rose are much more expensive – so if you see range with a standard price for all oils, they will not be pure essential oils.
