About Our Blending and Products
All products offered through Aromassist are handcrafted based on results from scientific research on essential oils and the specific chemical components of each oil. We use Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectroscopy (GC/MS) reports for the specific oil distillation batches of each oil used in our blends to fully understand the chemical components, which can vary from one distillation batch to another.
All of our essential oils and and carrier oils are stored safely to maintain the integrity of the oils and are blended for you on-demand based on your specific, personal needs.
Scent is the only sense that bypasses the thalmus and goes directly to the cerebral cortex within the brain, and research has found direct links between the appropriate use of essential oils and direct support of emotional and physical well-being. Our goal at Aromassist is to leverage the science of essential oils with the art of blending to deliver products that support your overall health and happiness.
Important Considerations about Essential Oils
Essential oils are not drugs. They are not guaranteed to support every individual as one would hope. However, they can be used to support both acute and chronic needs, and often, their benefits increase over time. Using essential oils for three months for chronic support provides a very different benefit from using them for three days.
We create custom blends, so we can tweak every blend to find the perfect one for you. Results are not guaranteed, but by working together, we'll find a blend that offers wonderful support when and where you need it.
We do not create blends for oral use or for use on animals. Also, we're extremely careful when using oils with children, elderly people, or people with impaired immune systems. The custom blend we create for you should only be used by you.
Finally, always read the label and accompanying literature we provide to you with your custom blend as they will include usage instructions as well as warnings. For example, some essential oils are phototoxic which means you must not put them on skin that will be exposed to sunlight within a minimum of 8-10 hours or you could cause irreparable skin damage.
This is why it's so important to get help from a trained aromatherapist before you use essential oils. There's so much more to the chemistry of essential oils than most people know. They're amazing but they do need to be used responsibly!
