Plants and herbs are nature’s gift to us, they contain distinctive characteristics and special scents which can be beneficial to us. From them we can extract Essential / Aromatic Oils and Hydrosols that have many uses in our every day life. Each herb possesses different properties which have unique uses in our life.
Essential oils are the oils which are extracted from plants. They are natural, volatile and liquid aroma compounds which are potent and can be extremely powerful. Hydrosols, also known as “Floral Water” are a combination of the water used for the distillation process and the oil, and carry the properties of the plant.
Aromatherapy from plants and oils has been used for over 5,000 years. Due to their fresh scents they are often used in food flavoring, perfumery, lotions, and for therapeutic and medicinal purposes. Many items in today’s society contain a flavor or fragrance, originating from an Essential oil.
