Essential oils are highly concentrated substances extracted from various parts of plants including flowers, leaves, stems, seeds, fruits, bark, etc. These aromatic and highly complex compounds have many useful properties ranging from pain relief, relaxation, cleaning, and stimulating particular processes in the human life cycle. Not to mention, they make our world smell AMAZING!

There are so many different kinds of ways to diffuse essential oils in the air. One is with our Green Air diffusers such as the SpaVapor 2.0. These professionally developed diffusers use ultrasonic technology and a little tap water to help just a few drops of your favorite essential oil fill your space with fragrance and health for hours!
You can also use a simple soapstone or ceramic diffuser with water and a small candle.
Or....simply place a few drops of essential oil on a tissue or cotton ball and place around your room, office, bathroom, closet, etc.
A few drops on a tissue or cotton swab or from one of our many Aromatherapy Inhalers, direct inhalation is the most POWERFUL way to quickly change the chemistry in your brain and body. It is recommended you sit still and inhale slowly and deeply for up to 5 minutes at a time. Deep slow breathing alone will help energize your body and relax your mind reducing stress. But, add your favorite essential oil or blend and experience for yourself the power of these natural substances. As you can see, this method of using essential oils impacts the most systems of the body for the most significant intervention and is the most safe as well!
Properly diluted in various carrier oils, essentials oils can be applied to the skin in roller bottles, lotions, body butters, body oils, bath salts and oils, and skin salves. The chemical components of essential oils can help stimulate cellular regeneration, reduce inflammation, reduce pain, improve the overall health of the skin, and assist the body in healing wounds. Oh and don't forget they also just SMELL GOOD! The important part of topical application is to know and understand your dilution rates.
Should I put a drop in my water? Many companies on the market today advocate the internal use of essential oils daily for digestive health. According to the research we have conducted and the education of our owner and Clinical Aromatherapist, we do not recommend internal use on a regular basis. Many essential oils can interact with prescription drugs and negatively impact certain tissues of the body during many disease processes or imbalances in health. We recommend consulting your physician or aromatherapist before ingesting any undiluted essential oil. Remember the safest and most effect way to use essential oils is via your nose! Sniff away!
