What are Essential Oils?

Loving harvested from farm-grown and wildcrafted plants, herbs, and trees, essential oils are concentrated plant extracts obtained by careful steam distillation, cold pressing, or resin tapping. These pure essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they are extracted.


The different grade of Essential Oils

Therapeutic grade essential oils are the highest quality of essential oils produced. Grade A essential oils are the hardest and most expensive to produce but are worth every drop. With Grade A essential oils, you are just extracting the already naturally occurring oil from the plant through steam distillation, cold pressing, and resin tapping.
