Essential oils are natural plant extracts that can be found in the leaves, flowers, seeds, wood, roots and fruit of a plant. Essential oils give plants their distinctive smells. They are highly concentrated oils that have a strong aroma and normally extracted through distillation or cold pressed.

The Olive Tree essential oils are 100% pure and no additives, bases or synthetics were added. 

Essential oils when applied to the skin undiluted may cause severe irritation or adverse reaction in some individuals. As such, always dilute essential oils with carrier oils prior to topical application.
