We have some exciting new additions to the Gaia Product Range – Pure Essential Oils of Rose Geranium, Lavender, Sandalwood, Tea Tree, Citronella, Patchouli to name a few. We will in due course cover the most popular of the essential oils available. The price that one pays for essential oils varies greatly, with certain oils being substantially higher priced than others. We have tried to keep the price as reasonable as possible and one must remember that these oils are highly concentrated and have been selectively sourced from the purest essential oils available. These oils often mature with age and a 10ml bottle of essential oil can, using a drop or two at a time, last for many months and sometimes years. Note that these are standard oils in the skin care range.
“An essential oil is a concentrated liquid containing volatile aroma compounds from plants. They are also known as volatile or ethereal oils, or simply as the “oil of” the plant material from which they were extracted. An oil is “essential” in the sense that it carries a distinctive scent, or essence, of the plant. Various essential oils have been used medicinally at different periods in history. Medical applications proposed by those who sell medicinal oils range from skin treatments to remedies for cancer, and are often based on historical use of these oils for these purposes. Interest in essential oils has revived in recent decades”.
