1) What even are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are 100% natural plant extracts. They’re incredibly powerful, complicated and full of amazing energy. They can help with a multitude of issues from; anxiety, poor sleep, lack of energy.
Essential Oils are made by steaming or pressing the parts of a plant (flowers, bark, leaves, roots or fruit) to capture the compounds that produce their beautiful, delicate fragrance. It can take a large quantity of the plant to produce just a single bottle of the essential oils you enjoy. Essential oils come from all over the world and the process of extraction is incredibly time consuming. Chapter Organics only sources sustainable and the highest quality therapeutic grade essential oils (which is why we’ve recently removed Sandalwood from our blends due to sustainability issues.)

3) Are they safe?
Essential oils have been used for thousands of years from China, Egypt and India, generations have been integrating oils into everyday life, its only now as our lives become more stressful, busy and hectic that we’re starting to once again find the benefits. Essential oils are 100% natural, they come from our environment therefore they don’t harm our environment! Many household cleaners and home fragrance brands use synthetic chemical based fragrances and toxic mineral waxes which can be harmful to your health, your home and the planet.
4) How do they work?
Essential Oils can either be absorbed through the skin (in our cleansers or moisturisers) or inhaled with our range of candles, diffusers, mists and pure essential oil blends. Inhaling essential oils is one of the quickest way to enjoy the benefits. Did you know scent registers faster to the brain than sight, sound and touch? So before you even realise you've smelt an essential oil in your conscious brain a wonderful array of reactions have already started to take place. You wont immediately notice but you'll be experiencing physical, hormonal and emotional shifts such as your central nervous system relaxing and endorphins moving around your body to boost your mood. When we inhale an essential oil blend, odour molecules travel through the nose and affect the brain through a variety of receptor sites, including the limbic system – also known as the “emotional brain”: affecting our moods, emotions and even our memories.
