Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids distilled form the different parts of plants. They get their name from being the “true essence” of the plant. Each oil contains the therapeutic properties of the plant itself in a much more potent form. It takes thousands of plants to produce essential oils.
Because essential oils are highly concentrated and potent materials, they should be used with care. Many essential oils are used in aromatherapy and alternative medicine for their therapeutic benefits.
I am always sure to follow the label instructions and dilute the oils appropriately.
