What are essential oils?

Essential oils are the liquid concentrate of a plant, obtained by distillation. They consist solely of natural aromatic molecules. Recognized for their therapeutic properties, they have been used for thousands of years in many countries as a form of alternative medicine. These practices have given rise to aromatherapy.

Essential oils have a shelf life of around 5 years after opening, but 3 years when mixed with vegetable oils.
