Essence is the Second Online Photography Exhibition by Estonian photography artist Jana Solom.

Essence captures pure doTerra plant essence (essential oil) drops reaction and form whilst being exposed to water.  
Essential oils are aromatic substances present in the specialised cells or glands of certain plants used by them to protect themselves from predators and pests, but also to attract polinators. In other words, essential oils are part of the immune system of the plant.

This beautiful reaction was discovered by offering one of the most known essential oils called Myrrh to the spring water.  
This oil is also widely known from the bible - where the tree wise men offered baby Jesus Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold.

In Estonia there is a beautiful tradition of offering either silver, gold, coins or something valuable to the spring before drinking water from it. 
That day having nothing else with me but essential oils - I offered Myrrh to the spring spirit. And the spring gave a miraculous colourful play, a cosmic explosion. There was a whole Universe in one drop.
Imagine - the effect on the human body - as pure essential oils open up the cells. The explosions and colours the cells will experience encountering the spirits of plants.

This beautiful cosmic play lasted for a few seconds. However, all dirt on the surface of the spring (where the oil was dropped), started to move away and the water got even clearer. 
✨Real magic✨
