The ability of fragrances to effect mood and atmosphere has long been recognised, and different cultures have made use of the aromatic plants available to them for spiritual rituals and personal use. The appeal of essential oils had endured, and today, the practice of aromatherapy is well established in the lexicon of natural health.

The oils are the highly concentrated essences derived from plants, used today in aromatherapy and fragrances, they have a long history in natural healing. The oils harness a plant’s therapeutic properties to restore balance to the mind, body, and spirit.

The aromatic compounds in essential oils are thought to help plants survive, for example, by attracting pollinators and warding off fungus and bacteria. Once extracted, essential oils contain the essence of a plant in a very concentrated form, which means the oils often smell delightful and retain the plant’s unique therapeutic benefits for our use.

A single essential oil contains as many as 100 different chemical components, which work together to give the oil its unique properties and aroma. Each component plays a role, but some are more dominant and determine how an oil will act on the body and mind.
