About Essential Oils

So…. you are interested in Essential Oils… and want to learn more! I want to welcome you on taking your first step on your wellness journey. I hope you will leave this website feeling educated and empowered  and know how to integrate essential oils into your  life.

So, what are essential oils and how do you use them??  Essential oils are the volatile aromatic compounds that are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers of plants. Essential Oils are used in many ways, topically, aromatically, internally. You can cook with many of them too!!  Essential Oils have been used throughout history beginning with the ancient Egyptians and Greeks and in biblical times. They are used today for both physical and emotional wellness. Essential oils are non-water based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds. They are extracted and steam distilled or cold pressed from the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of a plant. They are a wonderful way to support your body and mind on your wellness journey and are safe to use for the entire family. Nutrition and supplementation are also very important in these days of processed foods, GMO’s and pesticides. You will find information and resources on my herbal website, Teas and Treasures. Some of my products and oil blends can be found on my Etsy website called June Bugs Gallery. If you live locally in the Memphis area, send me an email and save on the shipping charge.

In my home we use essential oils and other natural remedies everyday. My two oldest grand-daughters live with me and they love their essential oils. They amaze me with their knowledge! They are only nine and ten years old! Check out their videos below.
