pure essential oils
Essential oils are a natural product made by distillation or mechanical processing of natural plant materials. They may be produced from the blossoms, leaves, seeds or stems of a variety of plants. Because they are the natural product of a growing organism they contain the essence of the plant as well as a large number of unique trace elements derived from the soil and immediate environment of the plant. These are not duplicated through chemical manufacture. Natural components act synergistically to provide the unique aroma and physical or emotional effects of essential oils.
