Botanical Extracts are powerful extracts from nature having their beginning from a living plant form. These extracts are created from thousands of varieties of plants and commonly fused with other compounds to create cosmetics, skin and hair products and more. These liquid botanical extracts are also used at home for cooking, creating non-toxic cleaning supplies and healing by applying it to body or ingesting it in food or drink. Botanical extracts are widely sought after for their aromatherapy purposes like their more complex sister the Essential Oil. Extracts are cold pressed, macerated or soaked in alcohol whereas essential oils are obtained through a distillation process which takes more plants to obtain a small amount of oil causing them to typically be more expensive than botanical extracts.
Caution: As with any natural supplement or extract, contact a qualified healthcare practitioner before using, especially if you are pregnant, nursing, or are taking medications.
