They say you need essential oils for a crucial time, between your birth & death. But what exactly are these miracle drops of oil that are alluring us? Essential oils are concentrated compounds extracted from plants & flowers. 

It is not just their aromatic scent that has made essential oils a necessity in every household, but rather their never-ending list of health benefits that have drastically increased their popularity and demand. Over the past decade they have become an integral part of alternative medicine, a branch of medicine that focuses primarily on methods of healing that stray from traditional approaches. Research on essential oils is limited but progressing by the hour due to their growing acclaim.

Under no circumstances are they to be consumed orally. It is strongly urged that essential oils are used in small amounts mixed with a carrier oil such as coconut oil, olive oil, or jojoba oil. Certain essential oils can also be toxic to animals, so discretion is advised for users with household pets.
