Essential Oils and Diffusers

The term “essential oil” is a contraction of the original “quintessential oil.” This stems from the Aristotelian idea that matter is composed of four elements, namely, fire, air, earth, and water. The fifth element, or quintessence, was then considered to be spirit or life force. Distillation and evaporation were thought to be processes of removing the spirit from the plant and this is also reflected in our language since the term “spirits” is used to describe distilled alcoholic beverages such as brandy, whiskey, and eau de vie. The last of these again shows reference to the concept of removing the life force from the plant. Nowadays, of course, we know that, far from being spirit, essential oils are physical in nature and composed of complex mixtures of chemicals.

Always dilute before any use. Enjoy the benefits of pure essential oil by aromatherapy, for massage or in your bath or in diffuser. For massage, to dilute we recommend 5 drops of essential oil to be blended with 10ml of base oil. For bath, diffuser, oil burner, vaporizer - mix 5 drops of essential oil in required water quantity.
