Aromatic plants and their oils have been used for thousands of years for their medicinal, health and cosmetic purposes. Essential oils stimulate and detoxify the body and can support a whole range of conditions in the body. Their antidepressant, antibacterial, antiviral and calming properties make them a wonderful, natural, healthy treatment and will of course leave you smelling absolutely delicious!! Just make sure you always buy organic and the top grade to ensure you’re getting the best quality oils.
Using them in aromatherapy is not where their uses stop. We can use them in home cleaning products, skincare, perfume, diffusers and candles. We stock candles at the studio with some beautiful blends, you can choose from ‘calming’, ‘restoring’ and ‘energising’. If you haven’t bought one or had a sniff – pick one up next time you’re in.
