What are Essential Oils?
They are naturally occurring, volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. These compounds can help maintain a healthy mind and body – as well as other applications. Basically, they are AMAZING!
Plants are nature's sorcerers. Since they can't fight or flee predators, or wander off in search of mates, they produce a brew of chemical compounds designed to fend off pests and attract pollinators. When humans consume these plants, the body may react in several ways. The chemical cocktails they contain may prove benign, poisonous, hallucinogenic - or even therapeutic.
The whole concept of natural products research is to take advantage of the defense molecules that plants, fungi and bacteria are making to protect themselves, to protect us.
These tiny little molecules have the power to....
When it comes to essential oils, the quality of the oil is absolutely imperative. What we are relying on when it comes to essential oils, is not the aroma, or the cute little bottle it comes in, but rather the quantity and concentration of the compounds which create the desired effect we are needing. Many essential oil manufactures state that their oils are pure, or that they are organic and therapeutic, however a majority of essential oil manufactures include synthetic and less expensive oils in order to maximize the volume in the bottle of the oil stated on the label. For example, a manufacturer can state that their Frankincense is pure frankincense, even if the bottle only contains 20% frankincense and the rest a synthetic or organic carrier- this is a major problem as the compounds which deliver a health benefit must be of a certain quantity and concentration or frankly it is quite worthless from a a therapeutic standpoint.
So be very cognizant of which company you purchase essential oils from, and after much research and evaluation, the top manufacturer of pure and therapeutic essential oils is doTERRA.
