What are essential oils?

They are aromatic, concentrated extracts -  the very essence of the plant - and create wonderful room scent.

The parts of plants used to create the oils include:  flowers, grasses, leaves, the peel of fruit, wood, root, beans, needles, seeds and twigs.

The oils are produced through three methods:

  1. distillation - with either water or steam
  2. expression - mechanically processed, known as cold pressing
  3. maceration - where the plant is placed in warm water to steep, thus causing the oils to seperate from the source

Use essential oil to add scent to your home.
