Essential Oil Benefits ...
for relaxation, healing and good health!

Essential oil benefits include relaxation and stress reduction, but they can also be a healing support system for our bodies that enable us to fight infection with scientifically proven results.

Because essential oils are derived from the liquid of different parts of plants (like seeds, flowers, or leaves), they are very aromatic and more potent then a similar dried herb.

Because of this, many essential oils need to be diluted with a quality vegetable oil before use.

Below is a list of our favorite essential oils used to aid in healing:
