Essential oils are compounds carefully extracted from plants that capture the plants scent, flavour and unique characteristics. Essential oils have been used in botanical medicine as traditional remedies for centuries. Our ancestors understood the land and how the power of plants and herbs can be used for healing. Essential oils can be used in a variety of different ways to support health and wellbeing around the home. They are naturally antibacterial and can be used to make organic cleaning products and sanitise surfaces to prevent the spread of germs, disease and viruses. They can also be used in aromatherapy and natural medicine to evoke healing or stimulating responses from the body and mind.
