“science is now confirming what has been known for centuries: essential oils have healing properties on both physical and emotional levels. absorbed through the skin and via the olfactory-brain connection through inhalation, they have been considered among the most therapeutic and rejuvenating of all botanical extracts throughout the ages.”

for thousands of years essential oils have been used for various purposes, including cosmetic, dietary, spiritual, and religious uses. today, most of us rely on essential oils for physical or emotional wellness and science is now able to support the physical, emotional, and dietary benefits of essential oil use. if you desire to move away from all the chemical based cosmetics, cleaning products, perfumes, and foods, essential oils are a great way to do that. even if you only start out using the essential oils to boost your mood, like i did, that is the perfect introduction to learn more about how you can implement them into your every day routine.
when creating my blends, i use only the best brands available. these oils are extracted through cold pressing, steam distillation, or resin tapping. these extraction methods guarantee pure oils of the highest quality with all of their benefits. i blend with 100% fractionated coconut oil which has wonderful benefits of it's own. coconut oil is naturally cooling, it's also a great oil to use for anyone that may have sensitive skin or allergies to nut or seed oils. fractionated coconut oil is even safe for those with a coconut allergy because all of the complex proteins that cause the allergic reaction have been removed during the liquefying process.
there are many different ways to use essential oils. my rollerball blends are meant to be used like perfume, so apply to wrists and neck. they are also wonderful to add to the soles of your feet for quick absorption, as well as the heart or abdomen.
in the future i hope to expand my essential oil offerings but in the meantime, blends are a great way to introduce yourself to essential oils or enhance your yoga practice. in the meantime, if you are looking for something particular, just contact me, i will gladly curate something for you. my current favorites at home are my face cleanser, facial toner, all-purpose surface cleaner, and diffuser blends to enhance mood. i also have a kick-ass essential oil regimen for when those pesky colds come knocking.
also, if you're ever in need of essential oils to add to your collections, i carry doTerra and Aura Cacia essential oils. just contact me for more information and look for specials on my curated inspiration page.
