Personal care is a component of self-love that yields wellness. You have one body, one heart, one mind. It’s ideal if you can care for all of these by devoting time to your personal routine. If you’re on top of that game, ideally you are utilizing the rejuvenating, healing powers of therapeutic essential oils.

Essential oils date back to ~ 3000 - 2500 B.C. They were used in India, Greece and Egypt among other areas. Hippocrates, the Greek physician who is considered the father of modern medicine, studied and documented the medicinal influence of over 300 plants. The Vedas, India’s most sacred book, mentions over 700 different herbs and aromatics codifying the uses of perfumes and aromatics for religious and therapeutic purposes.

Why is this important?

Essential oils are highly concentrated with the most powerful healing compounds of the plant, primarily antioxidant, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. They cleanse, strengthen, balance and energize the body. Essential oils are volatile aromatic compounds extracted from the bark, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds, stems, and other parts of plants. They give a plant its distinct aroma and play a crucial role in the survival of the plant as a whole, as well as its participation in the chain of life. Each essential oil has a unique composition based on the variety of its chemical constituents that vary from plant to plant and even species to species. 

What does this mean?

Essential oils have the ability to naturally and gently optimize your health and wellness. They can be incorporated into your daily routine to address specific needs from skin health to immune health. With the guidance of a holistic, homeopathic expert, you can create a regiment that works for you and the environment. An abundance of non-toxic products exists, which you can custom-make with essential oils that support mental, emotional, and physical health.

It’s important to know how your oils are sourced. From seed to seal, the integrity of your product matters. Factors concerning growing, harvesting, extraction, and distilling variations make a huge difference in the quality of the essential oil. At Vitality Health Center, we are partnered with the leading manufacturer of therapeutic oils to deliver the highest quality results available.
