Product Review : Amphora Aromatics Essential Oil

It has been a stressful period with much work loads.

I don’t practice bringing work back home. When I’m at home, I just want to stay away from all the office work. The long hours in office is already more than enough.

I was given the opportunity to sample Amphora Aromatics Essential Oil.

I often relate essential oil –> aroma therapy –> relaxation.Β 

What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils, or aromatherapy oils, are the fragrant essence of a plant. These highly concentrated liquid oils are the foundation of aromatherapy, which is based on the idea that the aromatic oil from a plant has healing properties. Essential oils are concentrated volatile aromatic compounds produced by plants – the easily evaporated essences that give plants their wonderful scents.

Some aromatherapy oils are too concentrated to apply directly to the skin. In this case, the oil is combined with a ‘carrier’ oil or lotion to dilute its strength. Applying stringent oils to the skin can cause harmful reactions, such as rashes or burns. And, certain essential oils should be avoided if you are pregnant or have been diagnosed with a specific illness.

Amphora Aromatics is one of the UK’s biggest suppliers of Pure Essential Oils and Aromatherapy Sundries. Founded in 1984.
