What are essential oils ?

The ancient Egyptians understood that woods and resins

were giving off subtle perfumes while burning.

But it has taken several centuries before we could transform flowers,

fruits and plants into essences.


Essential oils, or “essences” are highly concentrated substances extracted from various parts of aromatic plants and trees.

They are usually captured by steam distillation,

which is a process that can be traced back to ancient Mesopotamia.


Essential oils are very different from ordinary vegetable oils,

like corn or olive oil because the plant essences are highly volatile

and will evaporate when left in the open air.


The chemistry of essential oils is very complex.

Most consist of hundreds of components, such as terpenes, alcohols, aldehydes and esters.


For this reason, one single oil can help in a wide variety of health disorders.

For instance, Lavender is endowed with antiseptic, antibacterial, antibiotic,

anti-depressant, sedative and analgesic properties.


Moreover, due to their tiny molecular structure, essential oils applied to the skin,

can easily be absorbed into the bloodstream.

They can also reach the blood when their aromatic molecules are being inhaled.

In the lungs, they pass through the tiny air sacs into the surrounding blood capillaries

via a diffusion process.

Once they have reached the bloodstream, the aromatic molecules will interact

with the body’s chemistry.

 

HOW ARE ESSENTIAL OILS PROCESSED?

The processing operation starts with the collection of hundreds of bags filled with

thousands of fresh flowers which are kept in a cooled room and protected from the light.

After a while, these flowers will be loaded into a special container where they will be submitted to the most appropriate treatment such as Steam distillation, Solvent extraction or “Enfleurage”.
