ECG Essential oils are quality oils from around the world.
An essential oil differs from a plant extract in that it is a fragrant liquid oil that is distilled from the whole or specific area of a plant, such as leaves, stems, roots, bark or flowers.
It usually requires a huge amount plant material to obtain a small amount of pure essential oil. These oils are a complex compound of organic natural chemicals that impart their own unique fragrance. Every aspect of the growing conditions of the plant as well as the life stage of the plant determine the essential oil's chemistry and fragrance. For example the same species of plant grown in a different geological location will yield chemically different essential oil.
Essential Oils have been used for 1000s of years as natural perfumes and colognes. The Egyptians were possibly the first people to extensively make use of aromatherapy and aromatic herbs and included their use in religion, cosmetics as well as medicinal purposes.
Their use of Essential Oils dates back as far as 3,500 BC. An Essential Oil's fragrance influences the brain and nervous system. When you smell an essential oil, the scent molecules stimulate the mucus membrane of the nose which stimulates the sympathetic nervous system. This is why essential oils are considered to work at the emotional level. Through this energy essential oils can restore balance by their fragrance.
The term aromatherapy as we know it today was first coined in 1937 by the French chemist and perfumer Rene Maurice Gattefosse. He was not a believer of the natural health movement but was interested in the properties that essential oils exhibited.
In 1910 he burnt his hand badly in his laboratory and being the first available compound handy, treated his badly burnt hand with pure undiluted lavender oil, which not only immediately eased the pain, but helped heal the hand without any sign of infection or scar.
