What's the Big Deal about
Essential Oils


Essential Oils are one of the greatest untapped
resources in the world.  The concentrated essences
of various flowers, fruit, plants and herbs have been
used for centuries all over the world.  Because the
essential oils are sweet-smelling, many people think
their value is essentially one of charm and fragrance
- but this is a mistake.  Modern scientific research
has proven that essential oils are potent, with
amazing medicinal properties.  These substances are
very powerful and complex in their molecular
structure.

Unlike chemical drugs, essential oils do not remain in
the body.  They don't leave any toxins behind.  And
essential oils make much more sense as air
fresheners than commercial products.  They cleanse
the air by altering the structure of the molecules
creating the smells, rather than masking the
unwanted odors.
