Essential oils are produced by plants for two reasons: attraction and protection. Pollinators are attracted to the oils, which also protect the plants from pathogens, microbes, pests, and predatory animals.
Plants produce essential oils to protect themselves from climate/season change and other harsh environmental factors. As a result, essential oils contain healing and medicinal properties that can benefit humans. Essential oils, when used regularly and as directed, can help people support wellness and a healthy stress response.
