Essential oils have enhanced lives for thousands of years, offering a variety of benefits from cosmetic and dietary purposes to spiritual and religious use. Extracted through careful steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing, the purest essential oils are far more powerful than the botanicals from which they come

I always believed in a healthy lifestyle, but I had no idea that I could drastically improve my health and quality of life with essential oils also!

Essential oils can:

  • Balance hormones

  • Clear skin

  • Reduce stress

  • Improve anxiety

  • Detoxify

  • Increase energy

  • Relieve headaches

  • Improve sore muscles and joints

  • Be used to make homemade deodorant, face wash, toner, shampoo, condition, cleaning products, candles, potpourri, lip balm, skin help

  • Remedy nausea

  • Boost the immune system

  • Protect against seasonal threats

 

Essential oils are highly aromatic oils derived from plants. They can be pulled from any botanical matter and are typically extracted from flower petals, citrus peels, grasses, tree barks, and resins. The oils can be used aromatically, topically, or internally!
