What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are 100% natural and safe solutions to everyday issues like headaches, skin issues, owies, cold/flu, digestion, allergies, pain in muscles and joints, and even mood! There is basically an essential oil for EVERYTHING!
Essential oils are naturally occurring volatile aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They are natures defense mechanism for plants and cells. Essential oils are ORGANIC for the plant and us, the part of the plant we get essential oils from is the part that protects and fixes the plant and it'll protect and fix us.

Why are Essential Oils effective?
Essential oils work at the cellular level and protect cells. They are nutrients that penetrate the cell membrane which synthetic chemicals cannot. Essential oils have a unique chemical structure that our body allows to pass directly through skin for immediate systemic response as well.
They are highly concentrated. 1 drop = 1 dose, 1 drop is all that is needed to provide a powerful benefit. Essential Oils are also 50-70x more powerful than herbs.
Essential oils are so much more than a good smell
As you inhale, essential oil molecules bind to receptor cites going to the limbic area of the brain which regulates: memory, emotions, and hormones. AMAZING!
