Healing Properties of Pure Essential Oils

Essential Oils are the most concentrated form of a plant. Each drop contains valuable life force botanicals with different elements that have healing properties. Pure essential oils are very different than synthetic oils which may be deceiving in their appearance or scent.

Pure essential oils can be a great aide in healing. Before handling essential oils it is important to use in moderation as even a few drops can be very powerful and irritate the skin.

Essential oils are absorbed through the skin and circulated through the blood-stream. They are also processed through the olfactory organ (sense of smell) which is much more powerful than people give credit to. The sense of smell is linked to the limbic portion of the brain which is connected to the emotions. Simply smelling essential oils or using a few drops on the skin (in a bath preferably) can work wonders.

All pure essential oils may vary greatly in price due to the means of obtaining certain oils. If oils are all the same price, they may not be pure. Be careful not to ingest essential oils as most are designed for external use.
