What are Therapeutic Grade Oils?

Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural aroma and essence of their source plant.   They are made of tiny molecules that can deliver healing to all systems of our bod

Each essential oil has a structure of natural chemical constituents that makes it unique as to how it functions.  Thus why lavender calms and peppermint invigorates.


How do essential oils interact within the body?  

Through receptors in our body, which are proteins that specifically bind with different types of molecules to facilitate chemical communication to trigger effects.. Think of the cold feeling you get on your fingertips when you pick up an ice cube.  That’s a receptor at work.
