What are essential oils? Why do you use these?

Essential oils are the concentrated oils found in plants (leaves, petals, stems, rind and roots).  The spray you notice when you peel an orange, the aroma you smell when you press lavender between your fingers are the essential oils of those plants.  Essential oils are composed of naturally occurring chemical compounds which have properties (such as antiseptic and anti-fungal).  However, new research is indicating  that essential oils can have beneficial effects on moods and even memory!   It's common for people to mistake synthetic fragrances with essential oils but once you get on the path of using essential oils in daily life, you'll never go back and your nose will definitely know the difference!
