Aromatherapy is a form of alternative medicine that uses essential oils for psychological and physical well-being.
Blends of therapeutic essential oils can be issued through topical application, massage, inhalation or water immersion to stimulate a desired response.
Aromatherapy – the use of essential oils has been active for thousands of years in many cultures and has been used in North America as a healing modality for over 100 years. A French surgeon, Jean Valnet, pioneered the medicinal uses of essential oils, which he used as antiseptics in the treatment of wounded soldiers during World War II.
Two basic mechanisms are offered to explain the purported effects. One is the influence of aroma on the brain, especially the limbic system through the olfactory system. The other is the direct pharmacological effects of the essential oils.
Essential oils are used for a wide range of healing and nurturing purposes for all ages and for pets.
At the Healing Hollow you will find blends for supporting everything from relaxation, to bed wetting, constipation, PMS, snoring, stretch marks, fungus, bladder infections and more. And, if you don’t find exactly what you are looking for, they are happy to custom blend a potion to match your unique needs.
A note about the quality of Healing Hollows Essential Oils
Healing Hollow blends are handmade in small batches in the Rocky Mountain town of Fernie, BC, Canada. They choose their essential oils carefully and only use Certified Organic, Wild Harvested (grown in their own environment) or unsprayed. Not all essential oils are the same and sometimes organic oils have less therapeutic qualities than the unsprayed or Wild Harvested so they choose accordingly. Their oils are Food Grade safe and they have introduced a line of ingestible blends in 2014.
Healing Hollow use all Certified Organic carrier oils in their blends, sourcing their olive oil, pumpkin oil, red raspberry and all other carrier oils from organic, ethical suppliers. They work with All of Oils in Surrey, B.C to get the best organic olive oil possible and choose their carriers based on absorption and medicinal properties.
Inside Out Fernie Wellness is excited to have the good fortune of Healing Hollow being located under the same roof and joining the colloborative efforts of the Wellness Center.
