In recent years essential oils have taken over social media and are everywhere. But what really are essential oils? Essential oils are plant-derived oils that are said to help with anxiety, heartburn, and improving your mood. Obtained from plants as aromatic chemicals through the process of distillation, essential oils are then made when the aromatic chemicals are added to the carrier oil. Not only these essential oils also have a fantastic smell and can leave your living room smelling fantastic if used in a diffuser.
