Essential oils are natural compounds of vegetable origin obtained by distillation or by pressing from material with aromas, of which they retain characteristics such as taste and smell.
Essential oils, suitable only for external use, can be used with diffusers or humidifiers, or as perfumed oils for the body, as insect repellents, or as home care products, for example to deodorize the bathroom or as additive for household cleaners. They are also used in aromatherapy, a branch of phytotherapy that uses essential oils for their healing properties and maintenance of well-being.
Since ancient times, man has been able to distinguish between plants which were poisonous for him and which are important allies for his health. Using and smelling them, perceiving their aromas even when burned on the fire, man has developed a close relationship with them and has made them fundamental parts of his daily life, integrating them into food, drinks, his environments, his health practices. and even in its magic and religious rites, thus sanctioning a very close relationship destined to last until today.
