Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared to use the power of nature for therapeutic, spiritual, hygienic and ritualistic purposes, with a history that goes back thousands of years.

Humans have used them in cosmetics, perfumes and as medicines, for aesthetic pleasure and beauty, to increase shelf-life and the taste of food.

Oils are described by Dioscorides, for their healing properties, in the first century, and more recently a French surgeon, Jean Valnet, pioneered the medicinal uses of essential oils, which he used as antiseptics in the treatment of wounded soldiers during World War II.

We use them to empower ourselves and our loved ones with health and wellness.
