1) What are essential oils?
An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant. Essential oils, contrary to the use of the word "oil" are not really oily-feeling at all. Most essential oils are clear, but some oils such as patchouli, orange and lemongrass are amber or yellow in color. Essential oils contain the true essence of the plant it was derived from. Essential oils are highly concentrated and a little goes a long way. Traditionally, essential oils are exported by Euro-American countries. Although China is vast in territory and rich in natural resources which is an ideal place for producing pure essential oils with first class quality, it could only be the manufacturing plant for those developed countries for lack of its own brands. Nowadays, we are determined to be the first essential oils brand in China.
