What are ESSENTIAL OILS and what do we need them for ?


An essential oil is a concentrated liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. Essential oils are also known as “oil of” the plant from which they were extracted, for example – oil of Rosemary. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it contains the “essence of” the plant’s fragrance – the characteristic fragrance of the plant from which it is derived. Essential oils are usually extracted by distillation, often by using steam. Other processes include solvent extraction or expression.

The essential oils that are extracted from plant leaves, flowers, steams and roots are incredible tools to use in our everyday lives, especially when we are looking for healthy and natural solutions in a more effective form.

The uses for essential oils (both for getting and staying healthy) are vast and diverse. Hardly a moment goes by where we are not reminded of our dependence on plants and their uses. We use a broad variety of plant life for oxygen, food, clothes and to bring harmony into our homes and outdoor environments. Essential oils carry the essence of the plant – a single drop of essential oil can equal multiple teaspoons of the dried herb. For instance 1 drop of peppermint oil equals more than 25 cups of peppermint tea! These extracts can be used in multiple ways and combinations to bring powerful results to your tasks, atmosphere and bodies.

History of essential oils

Essential oils have been used for a variety of wellness applications throughout history. The Egyptians were of the first to use aromatic essential oils extensively for beauty treatments, medical practice, food preparation, and in religious ceremony. Some oils like sandalwood, myrrh and cinnamon were so valuable cargo along trade routes that they were exchanged for gold.
The ancient Egyptians believed that the sense of smell and ability to detect odors was the most important of our sensory abilities. They considered the sense of smell far more important than sight or even the ability to think. That was because they believed that odors can increase our intrinsic « frequency » and transform us.
Others to use the essential oils were the Roman who used aromatic oils to promote health and personal hygiene, the Greek who implied the oils in their practices of massages and aromatherapy. The Persians, influenced by all this, began to refine distillation methods for extracting essential oils from aromatic plants. Essential oil extracts were used throughout the dark ages in Europe for their anti-bacterial and fragrant properties.
According to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics and Chinese manuscripts, priests and alchemists were using essential oils thousands of years ago to heal the sick. They are the oldest form of medicine and cosmetic known to man. Oils have been used throughout history to evoke altered states of consciousness and initiate individuals into certain spiritual traditions.
The penetrating characteristic of essential oils greatly enhances their ability to be effective. Essential oils will penetrate into the body when applied to the skin. An essential oil placed on the foot will be distributed to every cell in the body in 21 minutes.
As health scientist and doctors continued to research the endless health and wellness benefits of the essential oils, the uses of these continued to grow rapidly.
In modern times, the powerful healing properties of essential oils were rediscovered in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse.
Gattefosse was covered by burning substances as a result of an explosion in his laboratory. Immediately he put his hands in a lavender rinse, and the gangrenous gasification of the tissue stopped and healing began. This experience led Dr. Gattefosse to focus his research on the healing power of essential oils.
A French contemporary, Dr. Jean Valnet, used therapeutic-grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers during World War II. Dr. Valnet went on to become a world leader in the development of aromatherapy practices.
Clinical research shows that essential oils have the highest frequency of any natural substance known to man, creating an environment in which disease, bacteria, virus or fungus cannot survive.
Today, the role that essential oils may play in combating present-day diseases is being studied at a growing rate. Hospitals and clinics are increasingly using aromatics. One doctor, Dr. Alan Hirsch, has even said that the day will come when essential oils will be in the medicine cabinet of every home.
