First, what are essential oils?
Essential oils come from the compounds found in all parts of a plant – seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts. They are harvested by experts and distilled to extract the oils by using precise pressures and temperatures. These precise measurements protect the plants and oils from being oxidized or destroyed by heat. read more details
