Essential Oils & Natural Oils
Essential oils are organic compounds extracted from plants with tremendous healing properties. Using essential oils for healing purposes is a holistic treatment seeking to improve physical, mental and emotional health. Essential oils are not the same as perfume or fragrance oils. Essential oils are made from plants and fragrance oils are artificially created and contain artificial substances that don't offer the therapeutic benefits that essential oils offer.

NOTE: How To Use Oils In Burners

To use an oil burner fill the bowl at the top of the burner with water and place a few drops of essential oils in the water, then place a lighted tea light underneath the bowl. The water and essential oils evaporate as steam, letting the aroma of the oils fill the room.
