Essential Oils & Carrier Oils
It takes many kilos of raw plant material to make the essential oils we find in aromatherapy bottles. This makes essential oils incredibly concentrated and potent, with strong therapeutic properties.
Interestingly, essential oils are not oily; their consistency is more like water. Most essential oil are pale in colour, although some have a tint and a few are coloured, for example, chamomile is blue and myrrh is brown.
Carrier oils are also included in this section.
