What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are natural and non-toxic aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They have been around throughout history, and have continued to gain popularity within the world of natural healing. They promote emotional and physical well-being by interacting with our body’s internal systems, through a variety of ingestion methods (aromatically, topically, and internally). For example, inhaled essential oils interact with the respiratory, olfactory (our sense of smell), and limbic (our emotional brain) systems to name a few. These systems control things like heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels, and our hormone balance.
We at Ixchel Massage are firm believers in essential oils, and use them daily in our healing practice. That is why we exclusively use dōTERRA Essential Oils. They represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today. Their oils are harvested in their natural habitat, at the proper time, and tested vigorously to help ensure the best potency for our bodies.
Our clients often inquire about our oils after they experience them first hand. After learning about the oils, they usually want to get some for themselves. That is why we decided to partner with dōTERRA, and make their oils even more accessible by providing them to our clients for purchase via our online dōTERRA store.
