Ever wondered what essential oils are? Read on about these plant-powered extracts, how they’re made, how to use them, and how to find the right fit for yourself!

What Are Essential Oils?

Miracle oil or a mambo jambo juice? Neither! Essential oils are simply and basically plant extracts that are distilled for their full, nutritious, nature-given properties.

These concentrated oils deliver wonderful scents and a plethora of health benefits that can transform moods, nourish the body and provide healing relief. Bottled relaxation at your fingertips!

How Are Essential Oils Extracted

We cold-press or steam-distill various parts of plants (flowers, barks, leaves or fruit) to get a concentrated batch of extracts, which we then bottle for you. Not all plants are created equal however, and some plants yield more extracts.

Extraction Of Essential Oils

Essential oils are concentrated herbal oils that contain plant compounds and aromatic compounds that give it its properties that resolve health conditions. It is also used in cosmetics such as in making perfume. If you need to know about essential oils from plants then you should start with the essential oil extraction process. Essential oils are extracted from plant material. Regardless of the extraction process, the amount of essential oil obtained from many pounds or kilos of plant matter is very less. The extraction method includes the following:

Steam Distillation

This is the most popular method of essential oil extraction as the final product has high-quality botanical constituents. Here the steam vapor from boiling water vaporizes the plant and the steam is later condensed into a condenser to get the oil.

Solvent Extraction

Here the active compounds including hexane and ethanol are used to isolate the liquid oil from the plant. This method is used on plants that yield very low amounts of oils. This process also extracts the non-volatile content of the plants, which are filtered.

CO2 Extraction

The supercritical CO2 extraction yields good quality products. Here, carbon dioxide is used as the solvent and it operates at a lower temperature than the steam distillation process.


This process of extraction is also referred as infusion. In this process the carrier oils are used to extract the goodness from the raw plant source. It is considered an environmentally friendly way to get the herbal extracts.
