Essential Oil Basics
What Are Essential Oils?
Essential Oil Definition
Natural, highly concentrated compounds hidden in the roots, bark, seeds, flowers, or other areas of a plant. They are what gives the plant its aroma.
To the Root of Plants and People
Essential oils are an effective way to address the root cause of health problems because they can permeate the cell membrane to address the 'cooties' attacking the inside and the outside of the cell that may affect your health.
Natural Aromatic Compounds
From a scientific perspective, essential oils are volatile aromatic compounds. The word “volatile” refers to an essential oil’s ability to change its state quickly from a liquid to a gas giving it the ability to be inhaled and applied.

How to Use Essential Oils
3 Ways to Use Essential Oils
If you use an essential oil “aromatically,” it means that you experience the properties or “aroma” of the oil through the air.
Essential oils easily penetrate the skin for localized benefits, making topical (on the skin) application a great way to experience the benefits of essential oils.
One of the most common reasons for ingesting essential oils is to reap the wide array of wellness benefits that can come from internal use.
