What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the volatile liquids that are distilled from plants (including their respective parts such as seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots, flowers, fruit, etc). One of the factors that determines the purity and therapeutic value of an oil is its chemical constituents. These constituents can be affected by a vast number of variable,es: the part(s) of the plant from which the oil was produced, soil condition, fertilizer (organic or chemical), geographic region, climate, altitude, harvest season and method, and distillation process. For example, common thyme, or thyme vulgaris, produces several different chemotypes (biochemical specifics or simple species) depending on the conditions of its growth, climate, and altitude. High levels of thymol depend on the time of year in which it is distilled. If distilled during mid-summer or late fall, there can me higher levels of carvacrol, which can cause the oil to be more caustic or irritating to the skin. Low pressure and low temperature are key to maintaining the purity, the ultimate fragrance, and the therapeutic value of the oil.

As we begin to understand the power of essential oils in the realm of personal holistic health care, we comprehend the absolute necessity of obtaining certified pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. No matter how costly certified pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils may be, there can be no substitute. Chemists can replicate some of the known individual constituents, but they yet to successfully recreate complete essential oils in the laboratory.

It is very difficult to find certified pure, therapeutic-grade essential oils. Why? Producing the purest of oils can be very costly because it may require several hundred pounds, or even several thousand pounds, of plant material to extract 1 pound of pure essential oil.
