What Puts the Essential in Essential Oils?
Aromatherapy refers to the application of essential oils through skin absorption and your sense of smell. Special body oils, creams, candles, and diffusers can be used to introduce the essential oils into your system, depending on what you are most comfortable using. Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants that capture the plant’s scent and flavor, each of which is unique to the plant’s aromatic essence. This is why eucalyptus essential oils smell and act differently than rosemary essential oils; the oils themselves are characteristic of the plant they were distilled from. The application of aromatherapy is increasingly instrumental to us because it uses the medicinal attributes of essential oils to relax and subdue discomfort. The emotional, mental, and physical prosperity of those who use aromatherapy tends to advance as they grow progressively accustomed to the essential oils they enjoy. The already vast universe of aromatherapy is only expanding. To date, there are more than 90 essential oils for you to choose from in order to find the best aromatic fit for your lifestyle!

We can assure you that when you’ve finished reading this article, you will have a stronger understanding of essential oils and how they might be a solution to your particular situation. Like with any crucial decision, it’s always a great idea to do research beforehand, so allow us to be of service by highlighting some of our favorite essential oils and exploring their valuable effects:
