What are essential oils?
Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other areas of plants. They contain volatile aromatic compounds, which give the plant its aroma, but also provide protection from harsh environmental conditions, as well as parasites, fungi, viruses, bacteria and insects. Essential oils are the plants’ own natural protection mechanism, or we could say their immune system – as they can’t dress up and turn on the heater like us! These compounds are highly concentrated, making them extremely potent – essential oils are up to 50 to 70 times more powerful than herbs!
Essential oils are safe, affordable, and effective natural solutions!
This is nothing new for us humans though… Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their health-promoting properties. Modern trends toward more holistic approaches to self-care and growing scientific validation of alternative health practices have driven to a rediscovery of the profound health benefits of essential oils. We can get so many physical and emotional benefits by using essential oils topically, aromatically, and even internally.
Volatile aromatic compounds are a fancy way of saying tiny, organic molecules that serve protective, regenerative and reproductive purposes. There have been over 3,000 types of volatile aromatic compounds discovered so far, and these compounds greatly determine the benefit, aroma, and nature of each essential oil. Because of unique chemical makeup, each essential oil will vary from species to species, and even plant to plant.
The greatest medicine of all is to teach people how to not need it.
It’s easy to see how we could all use essential oils to benefit our wellbeing, but it is extremely important that we are super careful with what essential oils we are choosing to use. There are thousands of brands out there; most of which contain synthetic compounds, or at the very least are diluted with who knows what – so quality is crucial!
We’ve chosen to align and partner with dōTERRA – both as customers and in business – because we love everything about this company. Not only do they have the purest, safest, most effective, and highest quality essential oils in the world, but their ethic and integrity in which they operate in every aspect of their way of doing business is just impeccable.
2. Ethical extraction methods.
CPTG essential oils are extracted either through cold-press method or via a low-heat steam distillation process. To ensure the highest quality oil extract of correct chemical composition, temperature and pressure must be monitored very closely. Too little heat and pressure will not release the valuable oil; too much can fracture an extract’s delicate chemical composition and alter its potency. Equally important to the carefully controlled extraction process, the meticulous selection of correct plant species and plant parts harvested at the perfect moment when their essential oil compounds are most concentrated, is also required for a quality therapeutic-grade essential oil extract. This complex process is as much an art form as it is a science and requires experienced growers and distillers working together to ensure a superior product.
