By now everyone knows what essential oils are and some of their benefits. I personally have used a few essential oils that my mother put together and have seen the benefits. The benefits of essential oils are massive but also depends on what you’re using the oils for. In case you didn’t know, Essential oils are natural oils obtained from plants either via cold-pressing or distillation. Essential oils are described as the ‘planets immune system’ that protects the plant from harm, a defense mechanism. Since there discovery, essential oils have been used in cosmetics, soaps, candles, and even cleaning products.

Over the last few years my mother has been making candles and soaps and she loves incorporating essential oils in them. She loved using lavender oils for candles and tea tree oils for soaps and I noticed the difference in my skin after unsing them. My mother always mentioned the importance of ensuring you purchase essential oils from repuatble companies as so many fakes out there. I was pleased to have the opportunity to spread the word about essential oils from one such reputable and well known company. www.newdirectionsaromatics.com is a 2009 supplier of Essential Oils winner with over 250 different varieties of essential oils. All their essential oils, fragrant oils and carrier oils are ethically sourced, companies like LUSH uses New Direction Aromatics as preffered supplier.
