Essential Oils

What Are Essential Oils?

The use of Essential Oils, has been used for centuries, by various cultures, to help relax the body, mind and spirit.

In many cultures, the oils have been used as natural remedies to a wide variety of health issues, and they are still used today.  For example, early last century, Lavender augustifolia (True Lavender) was discovered to have healing properties by Rene-Maurice Gattefosse, after he accidentally burnt his hand in the laboratory.  He noticed that after applying Lavender Essential Oil to the wound, it healed the damaged skin more quickly than the traditional methods of the time.

Essential Oils are extracted from various parts of a plant or tree, such as roots, bark, flowers and sap/resin.  The higher the quality, and type of extraction process, the more effective the treatment will be.  The oils can be used to help treat a variety of both emotional and physical conditions.

Essential Oils can help with:

  • Headaches
  • Stress
  • Tiredness
  • Anxiety & Depression
  • Trouble Sleeping/Disturbed Sleep
  • Aches & Pains
  • Improve Circulation
  • General Wellbeing

The use of Essential Oils in Meditation has been known to help assist with deeper relaxation, enhanced breathing practices and help clear the auric field and chakras.
