As you explore the world of fragrances extracted from flowers, leaves, roots, seeds, and woods you will gain an appreciation for their long history of use in every culture.
Essential oils have many health-promoting benefits. Many essential oils are now replacing toxic chemicals for household, industrial, and agricultural purposes. The cultivation, harvesting, and distillation of aromatic crops are an important source of sustainable income and ecological agriculture all over the world. And of course, they are used in aromatherapy, natural perfumery, incense, and cosmetic products.
Pure essential oils are very concentrated and powerful. When used correctly they are safe, effective, and enjoyable. Use essential oils diluted for massage and body oils, in diffusers for atmospheric fragrancing, in dilute mixtures in the bath for relaxation, and in vaporizers, saunas, or steam rooms.
