The benefit of cold pressing the essential oil: In humans, essential oils have a powerful health impact on virtually all parts of the body. Cold-pressing helps preserve the integrity and potency of these oils, which offers greater health benefits to us. “Cold pressing” the essential oils means no external application of heat. Any heat that occurs is created internally because of the mechanical pressing process.
This is important because, in certain plants, high levels of heat cause the delicate and tiny molecules within the oils to break down and degrade, which can minimize the oil’s health benefits.
