How Our Signature Essential Oils Can Help Your Mind, Body and Spirit
We adore essential oils here at Heart and Arrow so it’s only natural that you’ll find them in most of our products.
Not only do essential oils provide incredibly healing benefits for the skin, each unique scent has a powerful effect on the mind and can truly transform your mood simply by inhaling their gorgeous scent.
Now, before we dive in to our signature oils and why we love them, you may be a little confused as to what an essential oil actually is. Sure, you’ve heard the term multiple times, but where does it actually come from, how is it made?
Well, the good news is that essential oils are 100% natural, derived from distilling the stems, roots, leaves and flowers of a plant. These plant oils are highly concentrated, simply brimming in nutrients to infuse your skin with love and envelop your senses in a wonderland of bliss.
In this article we wanted to open your eyes and introduce you to just a few of the healing essential oils in our world, and why they are so wonderful for you!
