Oils for face and body have been used for thou­sands of years for their pen­e­tra­tion and re­ju­ve­na­tion prop­er­ties. The an­cient Egyp­tians and Sume­ri­ans used oils in their daily lives as well as for sa­cred rit­u­als.

The 3,000year old In­dian prac­tice of Ayurvedic medicine has its roots in es­sen­tial oils too.
