Essential oils have been around for centuries and are the core of what people used to support their bodies prior to the invention of modern medicine. In more recent years, the idea of natural healing through the use of essential oils has grown in popularity due to an increased desire to cleanse our bodies and homes of toxins found in so many of our household products, foods and medications. Essential oils are aromatic compounds found in plants and while they are not present in all plants, many grasses, leaves, bark, flowers, seeds and citrus fruit rinds are home to essential oils. The essential oil of a plant serves as it’s immune system, protecting the plant from harmful predators and illness. Due to the similar biological makeup of plants and humans, essential oils have been scientifically proven to support our bodies and increase our overall wellness. Pretty cool stuff!
