What are essential oils?

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that contain the natural aroma and flavor of the plant from which they are derived. They are typically extracted from the leaves, flowers, stems, roots, or other parts of a plant using a process called distillation, which involves steaming or pressing the plant material to extract the oils. Essential oils are used in a variety of ways, including aromatherapy, natural perfumery, and as ingredients in personal care products such as soaps, lotions, and hair care products. Some people also use essential oils to support their overall health and well-being. It is important to note that essential oils should be used with caution and should not be ingested unless under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Some essential oils can cause skin irritation or allergic reactions in some people, and some essential oils should not be used during pregnancy.
