Sometimes called the "life force" of a plant, therapeutic-grade essential oils are very complex. They are stored in special cells, ducts, or glandular hairs that are distributed among the flowers, leaves, bark, stems, and roots of a plant. These oils protect the plant from injuries, insects, and microorganisms.
These unique characteristics make essential oils highly beneficial to humans. A single oil may contain hundreds of constituents that are molecularly aligned in exactly the right manner to trigger a number of responses in the human body. Essential oils are used by chiropractors, aromatherapists, reflexologists, massage therapists, and others interested in natural health.
Using therapeutic-grade essential oils for the purpose of altering one's mood, cognitive, psychological or physical well-being is referred to as aromatherapy. Aromatherapists make use of the oils through topical application, massage, inhalation, or diffusing to stimulate a desired response.

Yes, essential oils can cause problems if they are low quality. Like anything else, you get what you pay for. It is very important that the oils used are absolutely pure and not adulterated with chemicals to make the product stretch further, as this can lead to allergic reactions. Do your own research or ask trusted friends to determine if a particular brand is high quality or not.
