Kawa Angel – Breathe Easy
Essential oils have become part of our daily lives – oil burners, aromatherapy massages, scented baths, natural perfumes and steam inhalations – all utilise the aromatic and therapeutic properties of these powerful plant medicines. Most households will have a bottle of lavender or tea tree (manuka) oil tucked away in their medicine cabinet, and skincare and antiaging products often include essential oils to enhance their beauty imparting benefits.
Essential oils are generally extracted using steam distillation from the leaves, flowers, roots and bark of different plants. Within the plants, the function of essential oils is to provide protection against disease and insect damage, while also making the plants more attractive to pollinators.
The history of essential oils is as rich as their diverse range of uses. Used in ancient Egypt and India where medicine looked to heal body and mind, natural scents have provided a connection between humanity and spiritual practices for thousands of years. Usage is documented from ancient Egypt and India, Greece and Rome, the Middle East, China and Europe.
Today we know that essential oils are complex materials comprised of hundreds of components with diverse health benefits ranging from antimicrobial, antiviral, antibiotic, anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and psychogenic effects such as relieving stress, supporting mild depression, and improving insomnia.
