Essential oils

Essential oils are paramount in the aromatherapy industry. They are used to enhance or alter the state of mind, body and spirit to achieve personal well being.

The oils are extracted from various plant shrubs, grasses and trees, using processes like "expelled-pressed", "cold-pressed" or "steam distilled".
