Essential oils are now playing an ever more important role in beauty, health and well-being. The oils have many uses and are obtained from aromatic extracts from flowers, plants and fruits. Essential oils are highly concentrated, and in principle always require dilution before use on skin, textiles and other materials. In the manufacturing process, the plant parts are distilled by steam and eventually become an essential and concentrated oil.
Fields of application for essential oils
Essential oils are very concentrated and therefore require great care when handling so as not to subject the skin to irritation and redness. The oils are all unique and suitable for different needs. Essential oils, unlike vegetable oils, are not fatty and can therefore easily be added to various base oils and used for external use. Thanks to the many properties of the oils, you can use them to get rid of vermin in the home, relieve muscle pain and insect bites or nourish the hair and counteract dandruff.
For peace of mind and relaxation, essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy and massage. For a pleasant environment at home, rosemary oil can improve cognitive ability while lemongrass oil provides a vitalising feeling with a fresh scent. To unwind during stressful periods, a few drops of soothing lavender oil can be added to your regular massage oil and used before bed for peace of mind and body. Whatever your needs are, there is an oil for you.
