Essential oils are compounds from plants that capture their scent, flavour, or essence.
The oils are extracted from plants through distillation (via steam and/or water) or cold pressing.
Essential oils are readily available, and can be added to liquids in order to apply to the skin or at pulse points, inhaled, diffused, or sprayed into the air.
They form the basis of aromatherapy, enabling us to benefit from the fragrances of the natural world and promote our wellbeing by applying or inhaling beautiful essences.
Aromatherapy is not only about healing and therapeutic benefits, but also, some believe, about amplification and activation of personal strengths.
Activate your star sign’s power through the sensory stimulus of aromatherapy, discover the chosen essential oil which will awaken and amplify your sign’s best trait and strength.
