What are Essential Oils?

Essential Oils are the oils extracted from plant parts like flowers, leaves, stems, roots, seeds, bark, resin or fruit rinds. Each plant contains only a tiny percentage of essential oil, therefore several kilos of the plant are harvested to extract  just a few milliliters of the magic oil. Essential Oils are highly concentrated and usually dispensed in drops, or mixed with a base oil for topical application onto the skin. They contain hundreds of therapeutic constituents and are used in personal products, aromatherapy, and for sanitary and healthcare reasons.

It's believed that some oils have powerful healing properties for mind, body and spirit. Others believe that certain oils have mystical properties and use them in magical rites and ceremonies.

Whatever you believe it's a fact that aromatherapy has become very popular world wide and more and more people are turning back to alternative medicines in which essential oils and plant extracts play a large part.

The Ancient Wisdom brand of Essential Oils are carefully selected from around the world for their quality.

All of the oils on this website are are 100% pure except where stated and supporting paperwork can be provided.
