Essential Oils are the “quintessence” – “the very core,” – “the fifth and highest element in ancient and medieval philosophy that permeates all nature,” oils extracted from plants, herbs, and spices. It is the spirit or life force of the plant itself. Extracting these oils is a complex process – careful handpicking or mechanical harvesting of different parts of plants, mechanized processing of the plant parts, water or steam distillation, where the essential oil derived, is separated from the water.
If you are new to the world of essential oils, welcome, buckle up and learn in stages about the good that natural oils from plants can do to our bodies. The chemical composition of essential oils has a definite, but positive impact on the chemistry of our brains.
