The Oils

What is an essential oil?

They are volatile compounds found within the bark, seeds, leaves, petals, resin and rind of plants. These tiny organic molecules are the innate intelligence within the plant that keep it healthy and thriving, protected from the elements, resilient to pests and plague, attracting friendly herbivores and serving a variety of protective, reproductive and regenerative purposes.
 
Essentially, they are the immune system of the plant. 

By extracting and distilling these concentrated compounds from organic plants, we can receive similar benefits. They are incredibly powerful, highly concentrated (50-70 times more powerful than herbs). These are the remedies humans have been using for centuries. They aren’t new, it’s just time to reconnect with them and remember that we have the option to reach for natural solutions first: without synthetics, without side effects, without harmful environmental impacts. 

Purity is paramount 

Essential oils are the concentrated power of Mother Earth; they are capable of transdermal absorption, inhalation into the lungs and bloodstream, penetration through cell membranes and even the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier. 

It’s the reason oils are so powerful – and why they should be treated with a less is more approach. But it’s also why it’s critical that the oils you choose for your family are 100% pure, organic and rigorously tested to confirm they are free of pesticide or herbicide residue, weeds, synthetic fillers, imitation oils, carriers or any other forms of adulteration.
