Aromatherapy offers diverse physical and psychological benefits, depending on the essential oil or oil combination and method of application used.  Some common medicinal properties of essential oils used in aromatherapy include: analgesic, antimicrobial, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, astringent, sedative, antispasmodic, expectorant, diuretic, and sedative.  Essential oils are used to treat a wide range of symptoms and conditions, including, but not limited to, gastrointestinal discomfort, skin conditions, menstrual pain and irregularities, stress-related conditions, mood disorders, circulatory problems, respiratory infections, and wounds.

Aromatic plants have been employed for their healing, preservative, and pleasurable qualities throughout recorded history in both the East and West.  As early as 1500 B.C. the ancient Egyptians used waters, oils, incense, resins, and ointments scented with botanicals for religious ceremonies.

In aromatherapy, essential oils are carefully selected for their medicinal properties.  As essential oils are absorbed into the bloodstream through application to the skin or inhalation (as they easily cross the blood-brain barrier), their active components trigger certain pharmacological effects (e.g., pain relief).

The adage "You get what you pay for" usually applies when purchasing essential oils, as bargain oils are often adulterated, diluted, or synthetic.  Pure essential oils can sometimes be a little more expensive, but worth the healing properties they possess.  The cost of an oil will vary depending on its quality and availability.

What I offer:

Oils are very powerful tools in aiding in the body’s ability to heal itself.  They affect all levels of healing with immediate results.  Many herbs and oils complement one another and speed up desired outcomes.

Oil combinations are created especially for your personal needs: sprays, bath salts, body oils, lotions, and perfumes. 

Many have found it beneficial to use a personal combination before, during, and after physical therapy, massage therapy, energy work, and stressful situations. Oils can also be used to change the mood of a room before a meeting, bring clarity and peace prior to public speaking, and provide an uplifting boost during times of struggle.

She also creates oil blends for practitioners who use personalized oils for clearing, getting centered, connecting and/or creating a pleasing atmosphere for their clients.

During your session, you may spend time exploring the aromatic oils and learn how to create your own combinations at home.

So treat your body, mind, and soul to a wonderful aromatic experience. 

Most importantly, have fun.  The possibilities are endless!
