HEALING OILS

WHAT ARE HEALING OILS?
This is the name given to oils that hold particular healing properties. They are not as concentrated, volatile, or aromatic as Essential Oils.

HOW ARE HEALING OILS PRODUCED?
In some cases, they are produced by infusing organic plant matter in quality vegetable oils, thus extracting the therapeutic properties of the various plants. As a result, the infusion may safely be used undiluted (neat) on the skin. This process is used for healing plants where extraction of Essential Oils is difficult, either because of the plant type or the very small yield of the Essential Oil (e.g. Arnica).
