Aromatic plants and oils have been used for thousands of years, principally in incense and perfumes and for religious, medical and culinary purposes. Numerous ancient civilisations including the Egyptians used them and they are also mentioned in Vedic Indian literature and in the Chinese Yellow Emperor’s book of internal medicine dating from around 2000 BC.

Today they are used extensively in the cosmetic and food industries, both for their aromas and as flavouring. The essential oils have many therapeutic properties that can assist the body with a variety of ailments, they are readily absorbed through the skin where their biological and pharmacological compounds can affect the body.

Essential oils are highly concentrated oils from raw plant material, including seeds, bark, leaves, wood, roots, fruit and peel.  They are highly volatile and must be used with care and ALWAYS diluted; however they have many therapeutic uses. Essential oils can be used to help with many common ailments and reduce the need for taking pain killers and other over the counter medicines.
