What are essential oils?

Essential oils are a natural oil typically obtained by distillation and having the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which it is extracted.

Essential oils have been used medicinally in history. With the invention of distillation there was an easier way to use herbs in a concentrated liquid form as an oil.

The global interest in essential oils is on the upswing as more and more doctors and hospitals are using essential oils with their patients to assist in their healing.
