Essential oils are the essence of a plant, a gift from the earth, distilled and prepared for you to bring the power of nature into your home.
Inside many plants—hidden in roots, seeds, flowers, bark—are concentrated, highly potent chemical compounds. These natural
compounds are essential oils. Essential oils give a plant its scent, protect it from hazardous environmental conditions,
and even assist it with pollination, among other important functions and benefits.
The high pricing
The price of each oil reflects the conditions of production, and because it takes eight million hand-picked jasmine blossoms to produce
one kilo of oil, you can understand why that is one of the most expensive oils on the market. Sixty thousand rose blossoms are
required to produce one ounce of rose oil, whereas in the lavender plant the essential oil is more 
abundant and one hundred kilos will
provide three kilos of oil.  In the case of jasmine, the flowers must be picked by hand before the sun becomes hot on the very first day
they open, whereas the sandalwood tree must be thirty years old and thirty feet high before it is cut down for distillation. Between
these two extremes, a whole range of growing and picking conditions apply to the plants that will ultimately provide the precious essential oils.
