There has never been a better time to introduce essential oils into your daily routine. Essential oils are compounds carefully extracted from plants that capture the plants scent, flavour and unique characteristics. Essential oils have been used in botanical medicine as traditional remedies for centuries. Our ancestors understood the land and how the power of plants and herbs can be used for healing. Essential oils can be used in a variety of different ways to support health and wellbeing around the home.
Essential oils are naturally antibacterial and can be used to make organic cleaning products and sanitise surfaces to prevent the spread of germs and bacteria. They can also be used in aromatherapy and natural medicine to evoke healing or stimulating responses from the body and mind.
At ZONE we are proud of our signature range of native essential oils, derived from Australian botanicals, curated to help you focus, breathe, calm and cleanse.
Australia has a vast, vibrant and lush range of native flora. We are a land abundant with unique botanicals that have adapted to thrive in the diverse ecosystems ranging from temperate and tropical rainforests, Eucalypt woodlands, alpine regions, monsoon country and the vast outback.
