About Essential Oils 
How to use 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils? 

Essential oils have been used for thousands of years to hellp the mind and body. They are not really an oil at all, but natures plants in extracted and concentraited form. They do not prevent disease or cure anything, but they can help your body get the building blocks it needs to grow, replicate cells and fight disease. Like eating well, it gives your body the nutrients it needs if used properly. Essential oils also purify the air and can help your mood.

There are many grades of oils out there. Therapeutic typically means that it is grown and harvested properly, from the first distillation and is uncut. Many producers extend the oils by simply adding alcohol, propylene glycol, or acetate to the distilled essential oil, and they do not have to list this on the bottle! Always look for the formal plant name and the country of origin as well. 

For instance, there are 39 typical types of Lavender! Where it is grown, harvested, the conditions and the type make them vastly different in quality. 

The compounds in essential oils are a small molecular structure that can 

penetrate cell walls to transport oxygen, nutrients, chemical constituents, and  

much more.

The easiest is to diffuse in an ultrasonic Diffuser. Add to a carrier oil for topical application or ust breathe in straight out of the bottle!
