Essential Oils

Essential oils have been around for hundreds of years and were the go to for most illnesses before the advent of modern medicine.  We first heard about them from ancient Egypt.  Egyptians cultivated the plants and used the oils extensively in religion but also used them for medicinal purposes.  Essential oils are gaining worldwide recognition for their versatility, but their use is not new.

Did you know we use essential oils when requested during massage?  Our most popular oil by far is lavender.  Lavender essential oil promotes feelings of calm and fight occasional nervous tension when inhaled but did you know it is also good for your skin?

We also use eucalyptus essential oil.  Eucalyptus globulus helps to relieve headaches and symptoms of cold and cough when inhaled.  Did you know that is it also good to help relieve joint or muscle pain associated with sprains, strains & rheumatoid arthritis?

Essential oils have so many uses that all the information can be a little overwhelming but their benefits are amazing!  A little research and you can open up a whole new world of self-care.  Wouldn’t it be fantastic to treat symptoms of illnesses without causing the harmful side effects that come with most modern medicines?
