In order to really promote our well being and just kind of boost our wellbeing from a physical, spiritual, and emotional perspective. 

It is also not just about “Oh, do you want some lavender oil with your massage?”


That's not all that it is nor is it an air freshener.

There is a lot more research coming out to review the efficacy of essential oils. 

However, we have to remember a few things:

  • Lavender and tea tree oils aren’t the only essential oils that you can use (or should) on your skin (please don’t add tea tree or peppermint oil directly to your skin and lavender isn’t a skincare cure all)
  • You should always visit a doctor or dermatologist if you are experiencing issues
  • Never use an undiluted essential oil unattended or without the supervision of an aromatherapist
  • Understand that some citrus oils are considered phototoxic and can cause burns on the skin. If you do decide to use them, it’s best to wait 12 hours after using these essential oils (with a carrier oil of course)
  • Certain essential oils are not good for pregnancy, small children, or pets
