Escape Naturally with aromappeal Essential Oils. Naturally sourced essential oils—with their distinct scents—have the ability to connect with your mind, body and soul. Our essential oils are derived from the parts of the plants with the most desired aroma compounds. Single-ingredient essential oils are 100% derived from a single type of plant. If you are looking to use oils directly on your skin, such as for a massage, check out carrier oils—vegetable oils and base oils that are usually extracted from the fatty portion of a plant. Carrier oils are utilized to “carry” the essential oil. The scents of carrier oils are typically not as potent as those of essential oils, so they blend well with the stronger scents of essential oils.
