Essential Oils

Important to any holistic wellness toolkit

Essential oils are wonderfully powerful healing tools that should be handled with care and knowledge, especially if you are using them on your pets.  This is why it is important to choose good, clean oils that are processed by reputable companies.  Take some time to find out about the company you are choosing to buy from before you begin using their products.

A great test to determine if your oil has been diluted with a base oil is to put a drop on a white piece of paper.  If there is an oil spot left on the paper after an hour, you have a diluted essential oil which may be inferior quality.

One day, I walked into a local store and saw that they had essential oils.  I asked the sales person about the quality of the oils without saying anything about my own knowledge. The person assured me that the oils were of a very high quality.  The Sandalwood oil they carried (Sandalwood is a very, very expensive oil when pure) was priced at $10 for a 2 oz bottle.  I knew it couldn’t be a pure product.

However, I went ahead and purchased it. I put it to the paper test and sure enough, an oil stain was left on the white paper.  Now, just because it was an inferior oil doesn’t mean it wasn’t an oil I enjoyed. I enjoyed it greatly! However, I knew that I could not use it therapeutically.

I work mainly with DoTerra Oils. If you would like to order their oils contact me. If you might be interested in becoming a distributor of DoTerra oils, I would appreciate your support in signing up with me, just contact me.

If you have visited me for reflexology, it is likely I have used some of the following essentials oils in your session:

  • AromaTouch – This blend is great for sore muscles and pain relief — not to mention it is just so refreshing that it picks up your spirit!
  • Citrus Bliss – This smells like orange with a hint of vanilla and is great to wake you up in the morning.
  • Lavender – DoTerra Lavender oil is one of the best smelling Lavenders I have found.
  • Serenity – This has a base smell of Lavender with Ylang Ylang and a few other oils . . . it’s wonderfully relaxing (If you are allergic to ragweed, you need to know that the Roman Chamomile oil in the blend is from the ragweed family.)
  • Tea Tree – I combine this with the Lavender to create a spray to clean your feet. Together both oils have antibacterial and antifungal qualities.
