Essential oils have been used for centuries in various cultures for medicinal and health purposes.
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils basically plant extracts. They’re made by steaming or pressing various parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves, or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce fragrance. It can take several pounds of a plant to produce a single bottle of essential oil. In addition to creating a scent, essential oils perform other functions in plants, too.
Because of their antidepressant, stimulating, detoxifying, antibacterial, antiviral, and calming properties, they are recently gaining popularity as a natural, safe, and cost-effective therapy for several health concerns.
