What are essential oils?
In its original meaning, the word "ethereal" stands for the heavenly. The core of this thought can also be found in today's understanding of the word: ethereal means spiritualized, fleeting. Essential oils are therefore volatile substances .
These substances are the pure essence of high-quality plants from nature. They are mainly produced in the leaves, flowers and shells of plants and stored in the tissue. The essential oils characterize the scent of a plant , thus attracting insects or repelling parasites.
What essential oils are there?
The first traces of scent come from ancient China, India and Egypt, thousands of years before our era. The high-quality essences are obtained and used for aromatherapy by steam distillation of leaves and flowers or by pressing other plant parts such as the peel.
Well-known essential oils are orange, eucalyptus, lavender, mint and rosemary. In our extensive range of natural oils in the online shop you will also find oils such as neroli, cajeput, ginger and cassia.
As a special feature, we at JOILS have created our wellness blends . These fragrance mixtures of essential oils were inspired by our travels to distant countries and are unique fragrance compositions with their aroma.
What are the effects of essential oils?
Essential oils work through their scent. They are therefore also referred to as fragrance oils . Aromatherapy is the name of the science that takes advantage of this property of essential oils and has an impact on our health . The various oils have a relaxing, calming, refreshing and invigorating effect, for example. They can be used, for example, to relieve cramps and pain, reduce inflammation and increase your concentration.

The use of essential oils is versatile. They are often diluted with water in aroma lamps or diffusers, vaporized or nebulized and thus absorbed by us through breathing.
