Essential Oils

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural fragrance and flavor, or “essence,” of their source.

Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts distilled into oil. Popular in complementary and alternative medicine, these oils, derived from flowers, leaves, and roots, have been used for medicinal purposes in some cultures for centuries. Continuing scientific research has found that certain essential oils do indeed have health benefits; in fact, many modern medications are derived from essential oils.
