ESSENTIAL OILS

"Essential oils provide us with a fragrant pharmacy full of remedies and delights for all aspects of our lives.
They are extracted from certain varieties of trees, shrubs, herbs, grasses, roots, fruits, and flowers. The oil is concentrated in different parts of the plant. It is extracted from the plant by a variety of means, depending again on the particular species. 
The most common method is steam distillation; other methods includes CO2, extraction, expression, enfleurage, maceration, and solvent extraction. 
Each oil has its own medicinal and other properties. 
We are all increasingly aware of the number of synthetic chemicals in our lives today, whether we like them or not. They leach from carpets, flooring, and furniture. They are in home cleaning products. 
For some jobs around the home, we can replace the usual shop-bought products with essential oils, and we can make our own entire body, hair, and face products, perfumes, and air fresheners.  
Each time we use them, we avoid using synthetic chemicals in our lives because we are lucky enough to have been given natural alternatives."
