Essential oils are concentrated oils extracted from plants that are used in aromatherapy as a form of alternative medicine. These oils capture the plant's scent, commonly known as the plant's "essence" in the aromatherapy field.
Essential oils are extracted through multiple methods: the most common being distillation in water or steam, or cold pressing the plant with machinery. Once the oils have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to make a product ready for use.
Essential oils are used in multiple holistic therapies for their aromatherapy benefits, either by being used in massage oil or cream or in an essential oil burner. We use essential oils to create our massage blends and creams here at the centre, we also have them available for sale in our shop.
Here at the centre, we have an aromatherapy course available to learn that teaches you everything you need to know about essential oils. If you don't want to take the course, we also have an aromatherapy mixing station in shop which teaches you how to make basic essential oil blends for aromatherapy.
