Essential oils are
chemical constituents of aromatic plants that have been used for
centuries in healing.
They provide protection to the plant from predators and
bacterial, fungal and viral agents, and help in cellular
regeneration and reproduction. When applied on
the skin or
inhaled, these same properties have an effect on us.
They can be powerful tools in dealing with a number of
physical ailments, including blocked sinuses, sore muscles or
joints, breathing difficulties, menstrual pain, scar tissue,
insomnia and emotional conditions (including depression and
grief), among many others.
certified Aroma Therapist, I create essential oil blends, when
appropriate, to help support and strengthen acupuncture treatments.
Essential oils can also be used independent of acupuncture.
Adolescents and children often prefer the use of essential
oils to needles.
I only use organic oils from respected suppliers.
