Do you love the smell of fresh flowers in Spring? I love taking a walk outside when the aromas from the flowering plants and trees fill the air! It’s a wonderful reminder that the winter cold is gone for the year (or at least almost!), and marks the beginning of the warmer months (my favorite time because I’m not a fan of dreary days; cold; and snow).
Essential oils are natural oils that are typically obtained by distillation. They have the characteristic fragrance of the plant or other source from which they are extracted. Essential oils’ natural aromas are usually divided into eight categories: Citrus; herbaceous; camphoraceous; spicy; resinous; woody; earthy; and last but not least – floral.
The floral category includes the following essential oils: Chamomile; Geranium; Jasmine; Lavender; Neroli; Rose; and Ylang Ylang.
