Essential oils are natural extracts from the seeds, stems, roots, flowers, bark and other parts of plants. Have you ever smelled a rose, or a freshly peeled orange? Without knowing it, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils protect plants against predators and disease. Essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends towards more holistic approaches to wellness are paving the way for individuals and families to reinvent healthcare in their own homes.

Essential oils have been used throughout history in a variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians used essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment and food preparation. The Greeks also used essential oils for therapeutic massage and aromatherapy, while the Romans used them to promote health and personal hygiene. 

In our day, the powerful healing properties of essential oils were rediscovered in 1937 by a French chemist, Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, who accidentally healed a badly burned hand with pure lavender oil. During World War II, French doctor Jean Valnet, used therapeutic grade essential oils to successfully treat injured soldiers. Dr. Valnet then led the development of modern aromatherapy practices. Recently, the use of essential oils has grown rapidly as scientists and medical practitioners research and validate the numerous health benefits of pure and natural essential oils.
