Essential oils are extracted from the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resins, seeds, fruits and wood of a wide variety of plants and throughout history have been used in perfumery, cosmetics, cooking, healing and industry. Essential oils were found in the tombs of Egyptian Pharaohs who lived over three thousand years ago. ‘Aromatherapy’ is the term given to the use of oils for body care and massage and for their positive affect on the mind and body, resulting in calming, relaxing, invigorating, uplifting, stimulating or emotional balancing.
AROMATHERAPY ESSENTIAL OILS
An extensive range of superb quality essential oils, all are certified 100% pure and natural. The common name as well as botanical name of the plant species is printed on the label. Use in oil warmers, massage and make your own blends and perfumes. Essential oils are divided into three individual ‘notes’. The term ‘note’ is taken from the Perfume Industry which indicates broadly the different stages of evaporation for essential oils.
►TOP NOTES evaporate quickly and are the aromatic notes that are first smelt in a perfume or blend. Oils which fall within this category are refreshing, uplifting, stimulating and activating to the mind and body.
►MIDDLE NOTES evaporate moderately, creating body and a central structure to the perfume or blend. Oils which fall within this category are balancing, stabilising and harmonising to the mind and body.
►BASE NOTES evaporate very slowly. The aroma is long lasting, creating a fixative and stabilising mellowness to the perfume or blend. Oils which fall with this category are relaxing, strengthening and calming to the mind and body.
When blending essential oils, it is recommended that a combination from each of the three different notes be chosen. This enables the base note oil to delay the evaporation of the more evaporative middle and top note oils.
