Essential oils are concentrates of the natural aromatic components of plants. In addition to attracting beneficial organisms, these aromatic compounds make up a substantial share of the plant’s natural defense system against disease and pests. Therefore, many essential oils have anti-bacterial or anti-fungal properties.
Essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy and the natural healing world, in baths/soaks, in diffusers for aroma, as well as in the fragrance, body care and flavoring industries. Are our essential oils “therapeutic” or “clinical” grade? Yes. They are 100% pure, unadulterated, all-natural essential oils. As such, they are highly concentrated.
Essential oils and hydrosols are fantastic natural alternatives to plug-in and other synthetic home-freshening options. For those that are new to this world, a single drop of essential oil on a light bulb will produce a beautiful room-filling aroma for hours. Put a drop or two in your humidifier for continuous dispersal!
A secondary product of the distillation process is called hydrosol (or floral water). Hydrosol is distilled water infused with a small amount of suspended essential oil and thus with the aroma of the plant. It is often used as an undiluted spray for linens, air freshening, cleaning, skin application and more.
