What are Essential Oils?

Essential oils are volatile (aromatic) liquids that are either low-heat distilled or cold pressed from plants (including their respective parts such as seeds, bark, leaves, stems, roots etc.).

Essential oils have traditionally been used in food preparation, beauty treatment, and for personal health-care practices.

Essential oils have been used for centuries in many cultures for their therapeutic qualities and have profound health benefits in the hands of experienced users. Single oils and even complex blends are effectively used in the following three ways:

1. Aromatic: The volatile nature of essential oils allows them to be easily evaporated and diffused throughout a larger space. Using this application method helps create an atmosphere where several individuals can enjoy the calming, stimulating, and soothing benefits of essential oils.

2. Topical: Essential oils are safely and easily absorbed by the skin allowing you to use a variety of topical application techniques to different parts of your body.

3. Internal: Whether you are taking capsules or the oil itself, essential oils can be used as dietary supplements supporting a variety of healthy conditions.

We use and trust doTERRA certified therapeutic grade essential oils in our studio and for our families (including our furry lovies!).  If you’d like to learn more, we have monthly essential oil workshops at the studio and we run workshops for private groups/individuals (at no cost!).  We are passionate about these products, and when you experience the high quality you’ll see why.
