What Are Essential Oils?

Do They Work?

Essential oils are compounds extracted from plants.

The oils capture the plant’s scent and flavor, also called its “essence.”

Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.

Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that’s ready for use.

The way the oils are made is important, as essential oils obtained through chemical processes are not considered true essential oils.

BOTTOM LINE:Essential oils are concentrated plant extracts that retain the natural smell and flavor, or “essence,” of their source.

Essential oils are most commonly used in the practice of aromatherapy. They are either inhaled, or diluted then rubbed on the skin.

Essential oils are not meant to be swallowed.

The chemicals in essential oils can interact with your body in a number of ways.

When applied to your skin, some plant chemicals are absorbed.

It’s thought that certain methods can improve absorption, such as applying with heat or to different areas of the body. However, research in this area is lacking.

Inhaling the aromas from essential oils can stimulate areas of your limbic system, which is a part of your brain that plays a role in emotions, behaviors, sense of smell and long-term memory .

Interestingly, the limbic system is heavily involved in forming memories. This can partly explain why familiar smells can trigger memories or emotions

The limbic system also plays a role in controlling some unconscious physiological functions, such as breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. Some people claim that essential oils can exert a physical effect on your body in this way.

However, this has yet to be confirmed in studies.

Entourage

Activate Your Endocannabinoid System Today!

For many years most scientists, believed that cannabis sativa was the only plant able to produce cannabinoids that activate the endocannabinoid system. Thanks to research in the last few years we now know cannabis is not the only plant that produces life-enhancing cannabinoids! In fact, just about every clinical study related to the health benefits of Cannabis sativa has also been done on its power-packed cousin, Nigella sativa, with similar powerful results!


Entourage is a synergistic blend of eight phytocannabinoid producing plants. Combined, they create the phenomenon known as the “entourage effect”. This occurs when the natural constituents found in a plant interact together and with the human body to produce a stronger influence than any one of the plants used alone.

When we combine multiple compounds in their natural state, we don’t end up with the sum of the parts; we get a multiplying synergistic effect instead.

Calm For Pets

Essential Oil Blend

Unfortunately, trauma frequently happens to animals… from pets to farm animals to animals in the wild. Severe trauma may be experienced through accidents, extensive surgery, life-threatening attack from another animal or human, or some other distressing event. Physical trauma is always accompanied by emotional and energy field trauma.

This blend can help an animal let go of fear it’s holding, feel more grounded, and able to move beyond a traumatic event to experience life again. The deep calming abilities of this blend can, over time, help reduce or alleviate obsessive, repetitive habits that may develop after trauma. This very physically relaxing blend can help restore peace and allow the body-mind to accept healing.

Not To Be Used With

  • Cats: due to their highly sensitive metabolic systems; their livers cannot metabolize terpenes.
  • Fish and Reptiles: due to their pH levels and aquatic environment.
  • Birds: due to their respiratory and metabolic systems.
  • Rodents & small mammals (gerbils, hamsters, rabbits, rats, etc.): there is not enough research on the use of Essential Oils with these animals to determine a safe use.
