Essential Oils

What are essential oils and why have the increased in popularity? Essential oils are really not new and any of us experienced essential oils without being aware of it. How about the energizing feeling when you squeeze some orange juice, or a lime or lemon? And there is nothing like lavender in a bouquet or sachet to enhance our relaxation.

These oils then are concentrated liquids extracted from plants, roots, bushes, seeds, flowers and shrubs. They are all around us and play an important role in defending against insects and disease. They can enhance your life and make you feel better when you have a cold or are not feeling well. They won’t cure a cold, the only thing that cures a cold, according to an old doctor friend of mine, is 8 days.
