doTerra Essential Oils & Aromatherapy
Essential oils have been used throughout recorded history for a wide variety of wellness applications. The Egyptians were some of the first people to use aromatic essential oils extensively in medical practice, beauty treatment, food preparation, and in religious ceremonies. At our center, we use the oils for aromatherapy and apply topically as an adjunct therapy to acupuncture treatment.
