Essential oils are highly aromatic oils extracted from plants. Unlike artificially created perfume oils, they have healing properties, and unlike vegetable oils expressed from nuts and seeds, they are not actually oily.
The energy field of a person when relaxed feels very different from tense and anxious. Certain essential oils, by helping us to relax, help our subtle energies shift more easily to a state of healthy balance and flow. They also connect us to earth energy (because they come from plants) and help to balance our overactive mental mind, bodies and spirit. And, because the beautiful scents bring us joy and fulfillment , they tend lift and brighten our energies.
