Oils in the air… oil in water.. Oils in massage….
An essential oil is a liquid that is generally distilled from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots or other elements of a plant. Most essential oil is clear, but some oils such as pouchiouli, orange and lemonglass are amber or yellow in color.

Essential oils can often be purchased as blend of several essential oils. The advantage if it is a blend of pure essential oils that you can save from having to buy every essential oil individually. The disadvantage is that you have no control over the blend by not mixing it yourself nor can you reliably mix the blend with other oils.
