Aromatherapy/Essential Oils


Aromatherapy has been used for centuries to treat a wide range of ailments and to complement medical treatments.  The essential oil of many plants hold healing properties that have been tested and used by many cultures.  The oil is usually taken from the plant through a distillation process.  Oils can be absorbed into the bloodstream through the skin and inhalation.  

Listed below are essential oils I have in stock.  If you do not see one that you prefer, let me know and I can see about adding it to my stock.  A blend of up to 3 is suggested to be used in your massage oil, lotion, a spritzer or an inhalant.
