Essential oils have been used as natural remedies to treat symptoms of various health conditions, and can be applied through various means such as aromatherapy, topical application or oral ingestion. So, what are CBD’s healing powers?


What are Essential Oils and How Do They Affect You?

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants. The oils capture the plant’s scent and flavour, or “essence.” Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence. Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.

We extract essential oils in their most concentrated form from fruits, vegetables, herbs, roots, stems, leaves and other parts of the plants. Rosemary, lavender, tea tree, orange and turmeric extracts have been the go-too for stress relief, better sleep, and to treat fungal / bacterial infections to name a few, when it comes to the essential oil family.

Throughout centuries, we have widely used this essence of various plants for medical and recreational purposes. They tend to smell nice and provide comfort from a stressful day - but how do they exactly work?

Claimed to be one of the best stress-relievers, you can inhale or absorb essential oils through your skin. Popular in aromatherapy, when you inhale an essential oil, the scent molecules (terpenes) are said to reach the emotional center of your brain through olfactory receptor neurons (sense of odor), uplifting your mood and refreshing your soul.
