Essential Oils For PMS
Essential oils are the highly concentrated fragrant essences found in plants. The leaves, flowers, fruits or roots of the plants are usually steam distilled or cold pressed to extract this aromatic liquid. SOiL essential oils are all certified organic. This means that the herbs, shrubs and other plants that give us the oils are grown on land that is not exposed to herbicides, pesticides and other harmful chemicals. The international organic standards also require that they use only stainless steel vessels to distill the plant matter, ensuring the oils don’t react with the vessels as they would with other metals. This, together with the low pressure distillation methods they apply ensure the oils are therapeutic grade. These are the best SOIL essential oils for PMS.
