What Are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are concentrated liquid extracted from a plant that captures its aromatic scent. These oils are typically obtained from a process called distillation, or the process of mechanical extraction such as cold pressing. They are a great natural alternative to harmful chemical fragrances that are typically used in self-care products today. Not only are they safer for you to use, but they are also more versatile. These oils can be added to a carrier oil like coconut oil or lotion to act as a perfume. They can also add these oils to a diffuser to keep your house smelling fresh! Some oils can even help combat common symptoms like peppermint oil helping with nausea or eucalyptus for clearing sinuses.
Essential oils are even a great option when it comes to skin and body care. One special oil in skincare is rose petal oil, which is packed full of nutrients and vitamins. It takes 242,000 rose petals to even make 5 mL of rose oil, thus making it one of the most expensive oils. Rose is filled with inflammatory properties, which are great for combatting redness, all while staying moisturized. It is also a great option for those who have sensitive skin!
