Every Plant and Animal Has a Sacred Gift
Mother earth has been kind enough to give every plant and animal a sacred gift, that it is useful in one or the other way. However, due to the ignorance of man a lot of times we discard the gifts thinking that they are nothing but wastes.
For instance, we believe that some parts of plants cannot be used in anyway and throw them away more often than not. But many a times these waste parts can be of use as well. These parts mostly contain oils, which are known as essential oils.
Essential oils are the fluids derived from various parts of plants, which are aromatic and have a variety of health benefits. Essential oils provide an individual with overall health and well-being; both physical and mental.
Essential Oils are Different from Normal Oils
Though essential oils are called as oils they are fundamentally different than oils. Essential oils are not like normal oils such as peanut, soy oil, linseed, sesame etc. These oils are taken from seeds etc. of a plant but essential oils are different because they are extracted from the other parts of a plant that contain essential nutrients. Quite often, these oils are confused with other fluids coming out of the plants.
Unlike other normal oils, essential oils possess different characteristics. For instance, essential oils are not sticky like normal oils. Essential oils aren’t smelly as well and they have a distinct color to. They are packed with nutrients and health benefits. These oils form the basis of Aromatherapy.
Essential oils are extracted from a variety of sources. Some of them are plants like lavender, Clary sage, basil, eucalyptus, bergamot, rose, germanium, vetiver lemon, chamomile, frankincense, grapefruit, neroli, marjoram, spearmint, juniper, clove, and peppermint.
As essential oils are non-sticky fluids they need to be mixed with real oils – carrier oils. Various good quality oils like almond oil, sesame oil, carrot seed oil, coconut oil etc. are used as carrier oils.
