Herbs and Essential Oils
The use of herbs and essential oils have both been documented for thousands of years, from hieroglyphics to teachings in the bible. (Ancient texts more commonly reference infused herbal oils or pressed oils rather than distilled or essential oils.)
Herbs and essential oils have been used in medicine, food preparation, preservation, healing, and rituals.
Is one better than the other? It depends. Sometimes an herbal preparation will be more effective and sometimes an essential oil is the better choice. This is because they are both very different.
Herbs are the plant, root, stem, flower or leaf, either fresh cut or dried. Essential oils are the concentrated essence of the plant. Essential Oils are distilled and the whole plant constituents are not present, just the oils.
