More on essential oils
Essential oils (EO) are derived from aromatic essences of plants, trees, fruits, flowers, herbs, and spices. Essential oils have many medicinal properties and can be used for inhalation and direct application to the body. Essential oils are different from vegetable or animal oils in that they lack fatty acids. Their small molecular size allows for easy absorption through the pores, allowing the EO to travel through the bloodstream to all parts of the body. They contain plant hormones and organic chemical compounds that regenerate and oxygenate new cells. Essential Oils are not perfume oils. Perfume oils are generally synthetic and have been "created" to smell like a specific plant, fruit, or other aroma. Perfume oils may smell similar to essential oils but do not offer medicinal or healing properties. The quality of essential oils varies greatly and is dependent on growing conditions, age of the plants and the skill of those performing distillation. LATHER searches for the highest quality essential oils and offers consumers only the finest oils from around the globe.
