WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Essential oils can be considered the immune system of Mother Nature. They are the aromatic compounds in seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants and play key roles in reproductive, protective, and regenerative processes. Exquisitely fragrant they also carry innumerable therapeutic benefits, working with our bodies to address issues and root causes on a cellular level.
HISTORY OF THERAPEUTIC PLANT USE
Plants have been providing safe and effective health solutions to families through the ages.
HOW DO I USE THEM?
Much more than just aromatherapy, these essential oils have quickly become an integral part of our healthy lifestyle. High quality oils may be utilized for aromatic, topical and internal use (CPTG oils only) to boost immune system, enhance breathing, aid digestion, ase aches and pains, provide emotional support, natural beauty and skin care, and more!
WHY CHOOSE QUALITY?
Not all essential oils are created equal. Basically there are four categories:
Synthetic oils: the most common, used in fragrance perfumes, cleaners and air fresheners. People often have sensitivities to these and can have dangerous side effects from this toxic exposure.
Food Grade oils: comply to the FDA's GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) standard. They are used as flavorings but generally have no therapeutic benefits.
Generic Therapeutic Grade oils: are the kind found in specialty health stores and can have some therapeutic benefits. There is no regulatory standards on "therapeutic grade", so even if they are labeled as containing "organic" essential oils, they can still be chemically processed in distillation or diluted.
