Essential Oils

For thousands of years, essential oils have been used to offer therapeutic remedies to everyday stresses instead of using harmful chemicals and medications. They have been used for cosmetic purposes as well as for their spiritually and emotionally uplifting properties.

These natural oils are extracted by process of distillation from the leaves, roots, stems, barks, and flowers of plants and trees. The oil is said to hold the true essence of the plant, including fragrance and healing properties. When concentrated, the oils can be very beneficial to our bodies; both physically and mentally.

Many massage therapists also incorporate essential oils into their work to enhance their client’s massage experience. The oils can be incorporated into your daily life in a number of different ways such as diffusion, inhalation, supplementation, and topical application.
