Essential oils have been used for thousands of years in medicinal capacities and more practical every day uses such as in cosmetics, cleaning products, perfumes, and lotions. They have influences not only on the olfactory system but also on the limbic system of the brain which controls basic emotions, memory, and state of mind. In our treatments we use essential oils from Young Living™ and Gem Elixirz™ to relax the mind and body and to inspire positive emotions enhancing the benefits of our acupuncture treatments.
