Aromatherapy & Essential Oils
NOW's essential oils are genuine reflections of the botanicals of which they're born. This wide array of essential oils is comprised of 100% pure and natural extracts teeming with beneficial substances possessing functional groups that, when properly diffused, can encourage wellness, tranquility and inspire minds.
Aromatherapy is the diffusion of pure, natural aromatic essences from plants and botanicals for the purpose of promoting harmony of the body, mind, and spirit. It's a natural technique that's non-invasive yet all-encompassing in its ability to affect the well-being of the whole person through the use of one of our most powerful senses - the sense of smell.
Aromatherapy works through two different methods of action. The first is through the effect of aromas on the brain, which work through the olfactory system to affect the limbic system. The second is through the direct effects of the beneficial substances naturally inherent in the botanicals that essential oils are derived from. Aromatherapy is not intended as a cure for any ailment. Rather, it helps to promote homeostasis, possibly through indirect effects on the immune system and by improving the mental state of the user.
The science of producing essential oils has evolved significantly over the years. These days producing an essential oil that's highly concentrated, identity verified, and beneficial is a craft that involves a delicate balance of art and science that cannot be compromised. Fresh botanicals bursting with vitality, strict attention to detail, and meticulous extraction methods are what separate the elite essential oils from the run-of-the-mill natural and synthetic oils you'll find on the market today. At NOW they take the quality and safety of their oils very seriously, and they take great pride in ensuring that every oil they produce is brought to you in a manner that's scientifically and environmentally responsible.
