What are earthy essential oils?
Earthy essential oils are derived from a number of natural products grown on land, including herbs, seeds, and several types of resins.
Frankincense, cedarwood, and patchouli are all great examples of earthy smelling essential oils and are considered to be popular choices due to their richly invigorating effects on the body as well as their pleasantly grounding smells.
Extracted via steam distillation, these oils are dense with benefits and can be considered quite luxurious in comparison to other oils, with some oils such as benzoin and myrrh (thick) retaining their resinous consistency throughout.
