The beauty of essential Oils

Aromatherapy Works

Aromatherapy is a powerful modality on our paths of perimenopause and menopause. It is a wonderful tool to assist us as we walk our unique journey into the beauty and wisdom of the second halves of our lives.

There is a lot of misconception about the proper use of essential oils, how they work, and what they can do for us. Aromatherapy at its core is a powerful healing art. When used properly, true essential oils can help us on multiple levels. One way is through the olfactory tract (our sense of smell), where essential oils have direct access to the limbic region of the brain. This has a huge impact on stress relief, anxiety, and cortisol regulation. The next way we can benefit from essential oils is transdermal penetration. Essential oils pass through the skin and can help with endocrine regulation and balance. They can reduce inflammation, they can reduce oxidative stress - the list goes on and on. In addition, essential oils can even pass through the blood brain barrier, once in the bloodstream, making them extremely effective to the nervous system, which is key in handling stress and the fight-or-flight response.

Mind, Body and Spirit

A Holistic Approach

Each of our formulas takes a three-fold approach, focusing on emotional, spiritual, and physical support. These three aspects are distinct and yet are one in the same, especially in regards to our journeys through perimenopause and menopause. A beautiful example is one of our favorite ingredients, Clary Sage. This oil helps relieve depression and stress, brings insight into the deeper meaning of things, allows us to connect to our empowered feminine selves, and Clary Sage is a powerful hormonal balancer and harmonizer.

The Perfect Pair

Traditional Wisdom and Science

Each of our formulas has been created by certified level II clinical aromatherapist, Françoise Decatrel. With over a decade of experience, she combines traditional wisdom passed down for generations, as well as the latest in validated essential oil research. We believe that is a combination of traditional use and science that creates an effective, balanced, well-rounded formula.
