What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are the life force of plants. When you crush the petal of a rose or tear the leaf from a peppermint plant, a liquid substance emerges. These tiny drops of liquid are called essential oils. Citrus oils are pressed from the peels or rinds of fruit. Ancient civilizations understood many of the aromatic and therapeutic uses of oils and resins. The modern world is barely beginning to comprehend the value of these hidden treasures.

Essential oils are highly concentrated, volatile (evaporate quickly) plant extracts that contain hundreds of organic constituents and other natural elements. Essential oils carry the beneficial properties of the plants they were derived from and provide a natural form of herbal energy. Most essential oils are lighter than water and yet are not water soluble, and they are able to dissolve in body fats.

Really the opposite is true. Essential oils have been in existence since the very first plant, tree, fruit, and shrub existed. This makes them the oldest form of herbal therapy. Ancient cultures used these oils and resins in a wide variety of ways. While essential oils are relatively new to America, countries such as Russia, England, France, India, and the Ukraine do not consider aromatherapy or the use of essential oils for therapeutic purposes new, unusual, or fringe.

About "Pure" Oil? 

A pure essential oil is one that does not contain added chemicals or additives of any kind, including vegetable oils. A pure essential oil has nothing added to it. However, a pure oil does not necessarily have a high therapeutic value. In fact, the therapeutic benefits of a pure oil can be very low.

About "Folded" Oils?
The term folded refers to oils that have been redistilled several times to remove constituents, with the aim of changing the scent of the oil for use in the food and drug industry.

They are all interconnected. Essential oils affect the mind, body, and spirit, and provide a holistic approach to supporting the body.
About Linalool?
Linalool is found naturally in many oils. It is the substance that creates the sweet smell. Some companies add natural or synthetic linalool to low-quality oils to create a sweet smell. We never do this. We maintain the integrity of the oils just as they are removed from the still. .
Are Your Essential Oil Bottles UV Protected? 
Yes. Our bottles are soda/lime with quartz sand mixed in. This type of bottle, no matter what the color, even if the bottle is clear, provides excellent UV protection.

According to a major glass scientist, this information is incorrect. smgl corp essential oil bottles provide UV protection of 85 percent.
How do I Know Where to Put the Oils and Which Carrier To Use? 
There are no hard and fast rules of application, either with the amount of oil or the areas of the body. Some people prefer to mix the oils with smgl corp 's Mixing Oil, while others choose Tangible massage lotion. If you want the oils to remain on the skin's surface longer, use the mixing oil. If you want a more direct application that is absorbed into the skin faster, then use Tangible massage lotion.

When your body adjusts to this application, you may use the oils on specific locations of the body. Essential oils should never be put near the eyes or in the ear canal. Massage is a very effective way of using the oils, combining their properties with the therapeutic power of touch. You may blend 30-60 drops or more to an entire bottle of base oil.

Diffusing the oils through a cool air system is the finest method for direct inhalation. The pure oil remains with all of its properties intact and escapes into the air where it may be of benefit after the diffusing is complete.

Pure, raw, natural, therapeutic essential oils rarely cause problems when used correctly.
