Essential Oils are concentrated plant extracts generally obtained by steam distillation from the flowers, fruits, leaves, stems, bark or roots of plants. They are fragrant and volatile and mix well with ‘ carrier oils’ e.g. olive oil, almond oil etc in which they are often diluted for safe application to the skin. Essential Oils are antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal. They also have the ability to alter body chemistry and therapeutic responses. They are very popular in the skin care industry. To prevent degeneration of the Oils, they should be stored in tightly sealed dark glass bottles away from any heat source. Pure Essential Oils are irritating to mucus membranes. AVOID EYES !
