Quality Essential Oils & Fragrances

About Our Oils

ESSENTIAL OILS are substances extracted from the roots, stalks, flowers, leaves or fruit of a plant. They are the essence of the plant. They have numerous and powerful healing properties. It is not recommended that they be used neat on the skin, with a few exceptions, such as Lavender, and Tea Tree which are very healing when applied directly to the skin. Sandalwood, Rose and Jasmine do make wonderful perfume oils while Cinnamon in particular should never, ever be applied to the skin. While licensed aromatherapists might use essential oils internally, unless you have great knowledge as a health professional, I would never recommend any of the oils we sell to be used internally. In very minute quantities, some can be used as flavorings. I highly recommend their usage externally when mixed with vegetable oils, otherwise known as base or carrier oils. Essential oils should be used in moderation as they are quite potent.

Our FRAGRANCE OILS are mostly compounds of synthetic and natural oils blended to smell identical to nature. They should never be used internally, but make wonderful perfume oils and can be used to fragrance soaps, candles and potpourri.

VEGETABLE OILS are 100% pure, cold pressed oils derived from nuts, grains, beans and seeds. These oils are not as volatile as essential oils as they do not evaporate as easily. They can be used as a nutritional source or as a base for essential oils in aromatherapy, and body care products. They also make excellent natural moisturizers when used on their own.
