Welcome to the first in a series of five articles presented by Lotus Garden Botanicals regarding essential oil and aromatherapy. Because of the extensive nature of this topic information is presented in a series to better serve in providing you with a basic understanding of essential oils and aromatherapy. This method of gradual approach is especially helpful for anyone new to the concept of aromatherapy or just getting started with learning more about the exciting and healthful benefits associated with pure essential oils. Of particular importance is the botanical origin of each, how they are made and what makes natural plant essences so distinctly different in composition to fragrance oils.
In our articles you will learn how essential oils are beneficial and incorporated into aromatherapy, crafts, bath and body products, natural perfume or simply through everyday use in a diffuser or oil warmer to scent your space. Similar to building a house, we will start this series at the foundation and begin with the history of essential oil.
