What is an essential oil or ‘eo’ ?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”14px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-5″][vc_column_text css_animation=””]Essential oils are derived from a range of exclusively natural materials, including trees, roots, shrubs and flowers. Essential oils contain the very essence of plants, a highly concentrated form of the plants protective properties. Essential oils possess the characteristic odour of the plant from which it has been extracted.
Essential oils are created by one of these methods:
Distillation (steam / water), expression and solvent extraction.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”boxed” css=”.vc_custom_1432727850842{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-sm-offset-3″][vc_column_text]What are nenä essential oils made up of?[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”14px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-offset-0 vc_col-lg-5 vc_col-sm-offset-3″][vc_column_text]All nenä oils are 100% pure essential, free from any additives, adulterants or dilutions.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”boxed” css=”.vc_custom_1432727859836{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-sm-offset-3″][vc_column_text]

Distillation
[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”14px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-5″][vc_column_text]Steam Distillation: The most common process of extracting an essential oil is by distillation, a process that isolates the aromatic, volatile element of the plant via steam or heated water.

Expression
[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”14px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-offset-0 vc_col-lg-5 vc_col-sm-offset-3″][vc_column_text]Expression: Also known as cold pressing, is used for citrus like orange and lemon, where the essential oil is contained in the rind of the fruit. Oils extracted by expression are highly volatile, meaning they evaporate quickly. Thus they are often referred to as the top notes of a fragrance composition.
Solvent Extraction: With this method, Carbon Dioxide or other solvent is used to extract the oil from plants, of which gas is evaporated once the process is complete.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row type=”boxed” css=”.vc_custom_1432727850842{padding-top: 40px !important;}”][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-4 vc_col-sm-offset-3″][vc_column_text]

What is a Carrier Oil?

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-4″][vc_column_text]
A Definition of carrier oil
[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”14px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”3/4″ offset=”vc_col-lg-5″][vc_column_text]The term carrier oil typically refers to a base or vegetable oil, used to dilute or ‘carry’ essential oils onto skin. This purpose is 2-fold, namely for practical skin safety and to slow down the evaporation rate of the highly volatile essential oils. Carrier oils are not characterised of strong aromas, thus their ease of use with essential oils, though some, such as olive, have a mild distinctive smell. Cold-pressing and maceration are the two main methods of producing carrier oils. nena carrier oils are 100% natural and organic.
