Do you have specific examples of what characteristics would be affected by specific minerals in the soil?


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.
