Essential Oils are really a gift from the earth. Centuries ago before modern medicine our ancestors looked to nature for purposes of healing. Before 500 B.C it was believed that plants had both ritual magic powers and medicinal qualities.
Healers would use plants, roots, barks, herbs and other things found in nature. Frankincense and Myrrh are both refferenced in the bible. Remedies such as hot lemon water and honey were used for soothing a sore throat, or Eucalyptus to break up chest congestion.
For many moons aromatic plants have played a roll in human civilizations. They have been used in ceremonies, foods, cosmetics, perfumes and other aspects of human life. It has evolved over time but the basic principles remain the same. From the beginning of time, oils extracted from aromatic plants have been recognized as the most effective medicine known to mankind.
Essential Oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants. They embody regenerating, protective and immune strengthening properties.
