Defining the Aromatic Ingredients in Aromatherapy PracticesThere are a lot of terms that get thrown around when you look into essential oils and aromatherapy practices. Some, like essential oils, make sense to you. They are exactly as the name suggests oils that are made from pure ingredients like bark, flowers, seeds and other plant material.

Some other terms, such as absolutes and carriers may make no sense to you at all. If you are confused about the aromatic ingredients used with essential oils, then here is some help to clear up the confusion.

Essential oils: Most people have heard of essential oils. These are oils that are derived, through a variety of methods, with plant material. Common plants uses include seeds, seed pods, flowers, bark, leaves and many more. These are natural oils that come from a product. Think of the juice you get when you squeeze an orange. That is essentially, essential oil. These oils are used for a wide variety of uses in aromatherapy. They can help heal, they can compliment medical treatment, they can be used to fill the home or environment with a great scent, and they can invigorate or relax the mind.
