Frequently Asked Questions
What are essential oils?
Forest Remedies™ essential oils are liquids isolated from plants and named after their botanical source. The term “essential” refers to the “quintessence” or total flavor or odor of the parent plant. Essential oils may contain hundreds of different constituents that contribute to the flavor and smell of the plant. When these plant constituents are extracted and packaged as Forest Remedies™ essential oils, they are 50 to 100 times more concentrated than they were in the plant. Essential oils have distinctive smells, may be clear or slightly colored, and can be biologically active. Essential oil use has been documented since the 10th century, but the use of plant-based infusions dates back thousands of years prior.
How are essential oils made?
Historically, essential oils were prepared by boiling plant material in water. Most Forest Remedies™ essential oils are extracted from plant material by hydro or steam distillation, by being partitioned into another liquid or by pressing. Depending on the essential oil and parent plant species, different parts of the plant may be used – for example, the peel, petals, leaves, stems or balsam.
