Aromatherapy is the use of Essential Oils to address imbalances in our physical, mental, and emotional states. Harnessing our sense of smell (even for those of you who have "lost" yours) can be one of the most powerful experiences we have as humans. Think of the smell of your favorite meal cooking, or of chocolate chip cookies baking, or the smell of a fresh cut lemon bursting with flavor....mouth watering yet? This is the power of our brains! It remembers smells and responds both emotionally, energetically, chemically, and electrically to essential oil chemicals. It's a natural yet powerful tool to restore balance in all aspects of our being.
You have probably heard a lot about Essential Oils from your friends, family, co-workers and the great wisdom of the internet! But what the heck are these tiny bottles of good smelling stuff people keep carrying around? Essential Oils are highly volatile oils which are extracted by various means from various parts of botanicals such as flowers, trees, shrubs, and other plants. Although they come to us directly from nature, they are extremely concentrated and powerful. Most oils require nearly a pound of plant material to extract just ONE drop of essential oil! Wow!
Essential Oils are extracted by methods of steam distillation, expeller press, or solvent extraction. Most of the oils we carry at Ray of Light are either expeller pressed (such as the citrus oils) or steam distilled. The oils are obtained globally by a local company with over 100 years of experience. Each oil is rigorously tested in multiple ways to ensure purity and quality. While there are multiple environmental factors which change slightly with each growing season, Essential oils obtained from specific botanicals contain generally the same chemical components and these tests ensure that when we order "Lavender" oil, that is precisely what we receive. Each time we order from our supplier, they send us a certificate of analysis so we are assured the oils we use in session and offer to you are safe and effective and free from contaminants.
You will have an hour to spend with our Clinical Aromatherapist exploring oils you are interested in, need to address any imbalances in your health, or feel drawn to. The consultation time can include the construction of essential oil blends, roll ons or other products to apply topically or inhalers to fit your needs. You may even find what you are looking for on our shelves. Products made for you will be charged in addition to your consultation fee.
