Essential Oils

Essential oils have been a part of The Sweet Meadow's journey since our very beginning, when we were searching for a natural peppermint flavouring for our peppermint slice. As plant lovers and holistic health advocates, we love these naturally occurring, aromatic compounds as they are not only ideal for food preparation, but also for beauty treatments, and emotional and physical health care practices. 

Essential oils are found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. These oils give plants their distinctive smell and have been used for centuries to help maintain a healthy body and mind (it is said Cleopatra used essential oils on a daily basis, bathing in rose oil several times a day to keep her skin soft and smooth). 

We have chosen to align ourselves with doTERRA essential oils because of their commitment to deliver the safest, most effective and highest quality essential oils on the planet. Their oils contain zero herbicides, pesticides, weeds, fillers and obscene carrier oils. 

If you're keen to try these magic oils for yourself, keep reading.

How do I use essential oils?

The three main ways you can integrate essential oils into your daily life are aromatically (inhale or use a diffuser), topically (massaged into the skin), or internally (check the label first as not all oils are safe to ingest).
