Essential Oils

Essential Oils are literally the spice of life. They are those little pockets of perfume that only a small percentage of aromatic plants possess.

There are many plants that have a lovely smell, such as lilac, where the aroma exists only in the moment of bloom, but the special harvestable pocket of essential oil is absent.

There are brief essential oil explanations on each of our webpages (unless you are looking at an unscented item). I am in the process of expanding those explanations, so keep checking for more information.
