Using essential oils for health is not new. Many great spiritual writings speak of using oils on the sick or well with health benefits. We combine Littleton acupuncture care and pure essential oils. Many over-the-counter blends contain mineral oil or worse perfume.
Aromatherapy is the medicinal name for using these substances for health and wellness.
Only Using Pure Medicinal Essential Oils
Our choice of substances for use in our office or purchase by our clients includes single remedies like Lavender oil a fragrant aroma. Highly regarded in skin care and beauty its use dates back to Egyptian times. It also helps the body adapt to stress. Many of our clients use this oil or blends to promote deeper, more restful sleep.
Another favorite in peppermint oil found in many blended mixes we use for pain, inflammation, or digestive and respiratory distress. Peppermint is legendary for it is soothing effects on an upset stomach. This oil supports the liver and respiratory system, aiding in detoxification. Some patients call this ‘Mister Cool’ because of the sensation that occurs with pure mints and the action on sore tissues of the body.
Aromatherapy can help with a variety of problems in a medicinal method. We call these blends rather than single emollients. Some of the combinations we use have historical reference for health. They protect us from colds and supporting the immune system. Others give us courage, increasing feelings of strength, and confidence. They can aid in reducing fears, anxieties, even stage fright.
Where Do Essential Oils Come From?
Essential oils are the natural aromatic compounds we find in the seeds, roots, stems, bark, flowers, and other parts of plants. We use aromatherapy made from trees, food, plants, even flowers. We live to say if it grows it has essential oils that heal.
Many aromatherapy products on the market are simply synthetic chemical substitutes. We strive to use pure therapeutic grade natural aromatic compounds. Harvest time is significant. Collecting plants or parts during the right season is important. Blends or single remedies made at the wrong season are useless for wellness and health purposes.
