The What and Why of Essential Oils

At Kheyleve we only use true essential oils; we search to find and use only the highest quality essential oils that are sourced from reputable manufacturers.

Essential oils are made from parts of flowers, herbs, and trees like petals, roots, peels, and bark. They get their name because they give the plant its “essence,” flavor or fragrance. Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic essence.

Essential oils are obtained through distillation (via steam and/or water) or mechanical methods, such as cold pressing.
Once the aromatic chemicals have been extracted, they are combined with a carrier oil to create a product that’s ready for use.

The way the oils are made is important, as essential oils obtained through chemical processes are not considered true essential oils.

Studies have shown that essential oils have a variety of benefits. They may help boost mood, reduce anxiety and pain, improve sleep, kill bacteria, funguses and viruses, reduce inflammation, reduce nausea, relieve headaches.

Many of our products contain the essential oils that enhance their benefits and add a nice fragrance.  However, our Sensitive/Dry Skin line includes the unscented versions of our products that are free of essential oils that can irritate extra sensitive skin.
