Essential oils, sometimes called volatile oils, are aromatic liquids derived from plants. Essential oils are called “essential” because they contain the “essence of” the plant’s characteristics. The plants are distilled, usually by placing the plant material into an apparatus over steaming water, and vaporized. The compounds are then condensed back to a liquid, and then collected in the resulting liquid. Usually, this is done through a single process, but some essential oils like ylang-ylang are purified in segments.

The chemistry and properties of essential oils are complex and a subject on their own. Basically, essential oils are the “essence” of plants in liquid form. Essential oils can be used for a large variety of reasons, from medicinal to cosmetic. The most common reason why consumers buy our essential oil is to diffuse them for fragrance, but essential oils can be used for skin-care all the way to pest control!
