What is an Essential Oil?
- 50-70 times more powerful than herbs
- 1 drop of peppermint essential oil is equal to 28 cups of peppermint tea
Essential oils are the natural aromatic compounds that are found in plants. They are extracted from the plants through processes of either steam distillation or cold compression. What is collected through this extraction process is a powerful and potent essential oil that contains hundreds of different properties (anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-depressant, analgesic,netc.) that can provide amazing and natural support for our health.
A Natural Form of Health Care
The industrial revolution and the discovery and usage of petroleum products greatly altered the face our health care system. We were guided away from the natural remedies that our ancestors had used and were directed instead to use synthetic variations of the same remedy or medication that would 'fix' the problem. What we have discovered over time is that although many of these synthetic medications resolve the symptoms of our ailments, they do not treat the root cause of the problem and often leave us dealing with nasty side effects that can be at times more worrisome than the original ailment.
Synthetic medications are not able to pass through the cell membrane to address what is happening at the cellular level in our bodies. What research has shown us about essential oils is that they, in fact, CAN. This is where we see the therapeutic value of essential oils come to light. By moving inside the cell, essential oils are able to support our health at a cellular level and support our body's natural healing and restorative processes.
