History

Essential oils are known as nature’s living energy. They are the natural, aromatic volatile liquids found in shrubs, flowers, trees, roots, bushes, and seeds. Essential oils often have a pleasant aroma. Their chemical makeup is complex and their benefits vast. That’s what makes them much more than something that simply smells good. Research dates the use of essential oils back to 4500 BC. Ancient Egyptians were the first to discover the potential of fragrance, and records demonstrate that oils and aromatics were used for treating illness and performing rituals and religious ceremonies in temples and pyramids. Today, essential oils are used for aromatherapy, massage therapy, emotional wellness, personal care, nutritional supplements, household solutions, and much more.
