Individual Essential Oils
Benefits,Properties, Effects
and Safety Cautions

Learn all about the many individual essential oils. The benefits and properties of each oil, how it can be used, what it can be used for, cautions of each and much more including infused oils, hydrosols and absolutes.

Essential oils, Infused Oils, Hydrosols, and Absolutes differ in both qualities and method by which they are made.

For an infused oil the plant material is placed in a container of vegetable oil and the oil absorbs the qualities from the plant.

An absolute is the term used to describe the material obtained from the plant by solvent extraction.

A hydrosol is the water collected when plants are distilled to make essential oil.

An essential oil is extracted directly from the plant and has nothing added.

Just click below on the individual essential oil you are interested in and have fun learning all about it. This is not a complete listing but it is a good start.
