Did you know, the chemical composition of an essential oil may vary within the same plant species and is unique to the botanical genus/species, chemotype and plant part from which it is derived. The characteristic fragrance of essential oils is attributed to the unique composition of chemicals in the plant, including: hydrocarbons, terpene alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, phenols, and esters. This variation affects the smell, absorption, and effects on the body. 

Essential oils are aromatic liquids obtained from plant material, flowers, buds, seeds, leaves, twigs, bark, fruits, and roots, through steam distillation or mechanical pressing. They are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural smell and flavor of their source.
