In many cases, the distillation process involves the use of steam. As steam passes through the plant’s stems, seeds, flowers or leaves, it assists in vaporizing the volatile compounds.
While essential oils have various uses, they have a long documented history of medicinal value. Essential Oils can support overall health, act as a treatment or remedy for various medical or psychological conditions or help prevent infections and illness.
Essential Oils should not be used on animals as they can have adverse effects.
