There are several minerals that we know their effect on essential oils that become especially important when you’re using oils for specific purposes. Here are some examples of the differences:
- Potassium tends to push the conditions to a more neutral or even alkaline pH soil condition, and this produces a sweet type of oil. I guess that sugar/sweetness tends to make the medicine go down easier.
- Potassium will usually move the oil to a more positive state, IE; positively charged.
- The higher Nitrogen content of the soil tends to push the pH of the plant to be more acidic and thus you end up with a more bitter or hotter type of oil.
- A higher Nitrogen soils will tend to push the oil into a negatively state oil, IE; negative charge.
