Essential Oils, Part 1

What would a King or Queen keep in their cabinet?

If we look back in ancient days to see what King Solomon, King David, King Tut, Queen Esther or Cleopatra would have put in their cabinet, what do you think you would have found?
Well, according to ancient documentation, you would have found essential oils. Essential oils were used by kings and queens as part of their daily health regimen and were often more costly than gold and silver.

What are Essential Oils

Essential oils are extracted directly from the bark, flower, fruit, leaf, seed or root of a plant or tree and just one drop can have powerful health benefits.
Essential oils are typically created through the process of distillation that separates the oil and water-based compounds of a plant by steaming.
Essential oils are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma. By concentrating the oils of these plants you are literally extracting some of the most powerful compounds of a plant into a single oil. For instance, in order to get one pound of lavender essential oil, it takes 150 pounds of lavender flowers!
So essentially (pun intended) you can receive 150 times the beneficial properties from lavender essential oils than you would from using straight lavender.
