An introduction to essential oils

Essential oils are highly concentrated plant extracts that are obtained through steam distillation, cold pressing, or other methods.

These oils are known for their distinct aromas and therapeutic properties, and they have been used for centuries in various cultures for their healing benefits.

Essential oils can be used in aromatherapy, massage, skincare, and household cleaning products, among other applications. Some popular essential oils include lavender, peppermint, tea tree, and eucalyptus.
