Aromatherapy Scent Info
What is Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy is the use of therapeutic oils extracted from natural plant matter in order to encourage good health and psychological and physical well-being. Essential oils are distilled from flowers, fruits, leaves, woods, roots and other natural plant matter from all over the world. Essential oils are highly concentrated oils with very fragrant scents and volatile substances, with varying degrees of complexity, fragrance, and volatility.
How Aromatherapy Works
There are multiple ways to use essential oils, including baths, ointments, inhalation, vaporization, massage and our favorite way, beeswax candles. Essential oils are able to enter the body in two basic ways, direct contact or by inhalation. Direct contact with an essential oil via massage or bathing allows the oil to be absorbed through the skin and enter the circulatory system. Inhaling of essential oils through mediums such as aromatherapy beeswax candles let the scents flow through into the nervous system.
We find natural beeswax candles mixed with natural essential oils to be a wonderful way to experience both the relaxation and calm that are experienced with burning a beeswax candle along with the natural well being that comes from the essential oils in the candle.
True Essential Oil
There is large variation of quality in essential oils and the methods used to gather and extract them. The most pure essential oils are created from the process of steam distillation or cold pressing, which ensures no substances other than the pure essential oil are contained within the oil itself. There are other methods of extraction, such as carbon dioxide extraction and solvent extraction to name a few. These other methods produce oil of an inferior quality and often end up leaving part of the extraction process in the resulting oil (i.e. the solvents themselves).
Thankfully steam distillation is the most common method of production. Steam distillation is the process of heating the plant matter in which tiny molecules evaporate which result in the making of the essential oil. Cold pressing is the method of extraction used for citrus fruits; the oil is extracted by applying pressure and squeezing the oil from the fruit.
All of our essential oils are 100% pure essential oils gathered only via steam distillation and cold press methods. No carrier oils are used or mixed with the essential oils. We purchase our essential oils only from well established manufactures that guarantee their essential oil quality and purity, and well as current members of the NAHA (The National Association of Holistic Aromatherapy). All essential oils we purchase are listed with country of origin, form of extraction, and botanical name.
