What are essential oils?

I get asked these questions a lot.

They are oils extracted by cold pressing or steam distillation (in most cases). These oils are concentrated versions of whatever plant, herb or fruit that they've come from and hold many healing benefits.

Because they are so concentrated it's important to remember to use a carrier oil in order to dilute them.

Very few of the oils can be used without diluting them with a carrier oil, but there are a couple of good natural skincare exceptions such as lavender and tea tree.
