Interest in natural medicine continues to grow. As it does so, both consumers and companies are looking in some unusual places for new treatments. This includes solutions for any number of health problems, from tooth decay to cancer.
One place people are seeking new medicines is essential oils. These are a type of oil derived from plants by distilling the plants down to their most basic fluids.
The name comes from the fact that the oil extract contains the plant’s “essence”. This is what gives a plant its unique fragrance.
There are several ways of extracting essential oils. The usual method of extraction is distillation using intense steam. Other methods include expression and cold pressing.
A dizzying number of products use the resulting essential oils. Perfumes are only the beginning. Cosmetics, soap, flavors and scents can all start as a simple essential oil.
And essential oils can be used to treat an incredible number of beauty and health issues too, including allergies, colds, neuropathy, arthritis and hemorrhoids, among many others. And they can also be used to treat skin problems such as psoriasis, as well as to help with weight loss too. Essential oils can even be helpful when it comes to stimulating hair growth and preventing hair loss.
