The Ability of Essential Oils

November 6, 2019

Did you know your sense of smell is your most primal sense and exerts surprising influence on your thoughts, emotions, moods, memories and behaviors? The sense of smell is different from your other senses, they are processed through different pathways in your brain. Our sound and visual images are delivered straight to your Thalamus, then the sense goes out to the primary sensory arenas. But smells are different… Before reaching your Thalamus they first wind their way through other regions of your brain, including areas controlling memory and emotions. So with scents, you have all this extra processing even before you have an awareness of the scent. For this reason scents have a powerful influence over how you think, feel and behave. Aromatherapy can enhance your well- being.

Essential Oils carry biologically actual volatile compounds in a highly concentrated form that can provide therapeutic benefits in very small amounts. The Essential oils that you use must be pure, therapeutic grade essential oils from plants, not man-made fragrances and perfumes that can be toxic and loaded with allergenic compounds.

The use of Fragrances have been around for thousands of years. Physicians and healers promoted the therapeutic use of essential oils including Hippocrates. The plague was treated with essential oils!

It wasn’t until the early 19th Century that the medicinal use of essential oils was largely discredited by scientists who favored drugs. Fortunately, aromatherapy is now making a comeback, moving steadily in the direction of mainstream. Research shows particular promise in relieving stress, stabilizing mood, improving sleep, pain and nausea relief, improving memory and energy levels, as well as detoxifying and strengthening the immune system.

We are nature, we are organic. A pure Essential Oil blends with our own cells and body without an inflammatory response because our body can identify it. Essential oils are multi-dimensional. They are filled with intelligence to return the body to healthy balance. When their action is no longer needed, they can be utilized elsewhere and most importantly can be excreted. They do not lodge in your muscles or organs. Essential oils molecules send information to cells and cleanse receptor cites. They balance the body, strengthen the immune system and cleanse the residue and toxins from your body. They get the cells of our body to function properly and are in harmony with one another and help restore your body to a more natural state.

what people are saying

“I love this place. I have seen Joanne for both massage and facial's and she is incredible. I was an LMT for 16 years so it can be challenging for me to find someone I like for bodywork. She's excellent. The feel of the space is so comforting and light. The products used are all organic and smell wonderful. Highly recommend.”

“How to get away from it all? Have a massage or facial or both from Julie! I had both and my experience was total relaxation. She intuitively knew where to work out the stress in my body. No words needed to be spoken. Amazing! At the last minute, I decided to get my brows waxed. PERFECT and no pain! Might have been a ride from Templeton but well worth going to this little heaven on Earth.”

- Colleen F.

“We're so lucky to have a high-end spa in our neighborhood and not have to pay the high-end prices. I've been going here for years. They use products I've seen at resort spas. They've educated me on the right products to take care of my face. They know what they're talking about!”
