Why coconut wax
Coconut oil is extracted from the kernal of mature coconuts that are sustainably harvested from the Coconut Palm tree (Cocos Nucifera). Coconuts are a renewable resource and sustainable since no tree is cut down in order to pick the coconuts. The coconut palm tree is known as a "three generation" tree which means it can support a farmer, her children and their grandchildren. One tree lives and bears fruit for up to 60 years. They are not sprayed with pesticides and most of the farms say they are fair trade. Coconut oil is a wonderful carrier for our essential oil aromas as it has a lower melt point which helps to keep the therapeutic benefits and phytoactive values alive in the most holistic way.
What are essential oils
Essential oils are the fragrant plant materials within plant cells, extracted by a physical process, such as steam distillation, from the plant. Essential oils are more potent than dried herbs and they are the ultimate in natural healthcare. Ancient Egyptians, Chinese medicine and the Indian science of Ayurveda relied upon the power of essential oils from plants to maintain the health of the mind and body.
Pure Plant Home is founded on the belief that pure plant and flower aromas – known as essential oils – enhance well-being and are a vital pathway to a healthy lifestyle
Real essential oils are steam distilled from plants and flowers, extracted or cold pressed from citrus fruits
Petrochemical-free, not synthetic fragrances
Each essential oil contains hundreds of antibacterial, anti viral natural constituents that have the ability to enter the body through the olfactory system. They are easily absorbed through the skin, and can benefit the nerve and lymphatic system. Plant aromas have more to offer than just smelling good – they contain antiseptic and healing qualities as well. They may enhance or lift your mood and help keep the body and environment pure.
Plant derived aromas reflect the current season’s crops and harvests, and just like the best wines, results will vary each year. From product batch to batch, you may notice subtle shifts in aroma, color and texture. These nuances are part of the pleasure of working with essential oils.
