Essential oils have been used for thousands of years. There are references to frankincense, hyssop, myrrh and cinnamon in the Bible, and the Egyptians used herbs and oils for medicinal purposes.
Essential oils are distilled from plants and highly concentrated. While most scented products, such as candles and lotions, use synthetic chemicals to mimic smells, essential oils use only natural plants, magnifying the therapeutic value of each essence. There are many different oils to help with a variety of conditions and ailments naturally, without chemicals or dangerous toxins.
