Ancient Apothecary Frequently Asked Questions
What are essential oils?
Have you ever smelled the crisp, refreshing scent of a fresh cut lemon? If so, you may have already experienced the power of essential oils and not even know it.
Essential oils are responsible for the fragrances you smell. They’re also the nutritional compounds inside many plants and herbs. And once extracted from the plant or herb, they bring many of the same health-giving benefits to the table. One reason they’re so powerful is because they’re the “essence” of the real plant or herb, only in a highly concentrated form. In fact, one small, 15mL bottle of lemon essential oil can contain up to 45 lemons!
In short, essential oils are often referred to as the “life blood” of plants and trees. They are the concentrated oils of herbs, plants and trees, including the bark, stems, flowers and other parts.
How are essential oils made?
Wondering how those great smelling essential oils are made? Turns out, essential oils aren’t “made” at all. They ARE “extracted” from plants, herbs and spices. But just because they are extracted from plants doesn’t mean the way they’re sourced is all the same. In fact, the way they’re extracted from the plant or herb can have a big impact on the quality. Here’s a quick rundown of the two primary ways essential oils are extracted from the plants.
Steamed Distilled: The most common method of extracting an essential oil from the plant is through steam distillation. The steaming process separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant.
Low temperature and low pressure play an important part of collecting the highest quality essential oil. When plant matter is placed into a chamber and steam is injected, the plant’s essential oil is released into the air. The steam and essential oil are carried out of the chamber and cooled. The oil and water are then allowed to separate for collection.
Cold Pressed Extraction: Cold pressed is a method where the essential oil is pressed from the plant. This is the most common method of extraction for the citrus oils. The peel of the citrus plant is pressed and the essential oil is then filtered from the plant matter.
The method of extraction directly affects the essential oils’ quality by way of pressure and temperatures applied.
Be sure to check out an oils guide to see how essential oils were extracted prior to purchase and use.
How are carrier oils used?
Carrier oils are used to dilute essential oils when they are being used topically; they help to carry the essential oils into the skin. Many lotions and skin care products are made with carrier oils, which are vegetable oils derived from the fatty portion of the plant, such as the nuts, kernels or seeds. Unlike essential oils, carrier oils do not evaporate easily and do not give off strong aromas.
Unfortunately, carrier oils often have a defined shelf life. Each carrier oil is different. Some are more aromatic than others, and the color and shelf life will differ as well.
What is aromatherapy?
