Essential Oils and Carrier Oils

Aromatherapy is the use of highly concentrated plant oils to enhance physical, psychological, and emotional well being. Oils are extracted by various methods from the root, flower bud, fruit, leaf, resin, or woody parts of plants. Essential oils are what give flowers, herbs, and greenery their special scent and flavor.

While the term aromatherapy seems to have been first used during the 1920ís, the use of such oils has been well documented for centuries in such cultures as Egyptian, Persian, and Chinese.

Essential oils work therapeutically by affecting our mood and feelings and thereby changing our mindset to invigorate, relax, calm, refresh, and uplift. Essential oils can be used for cosmetic, antiseptic, deodorizing, and spiritual use as well.

Durham Natural Foods carries a full line of essential oils and carrier oils. We stock both Aromaforce Essential Oils and Aqua Oleum Oils. We usually have brochures and plant guides on hand and available free of charge.
