WHAT IS AROMATHERAPY? HOW DOES IT WORK?
Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to promote health and well-being. Essential oils are composed of hundreds of different constituents. It's the combination and amount of constituents that determine the properties of the essential oil. These oils can be applied topically or through inhalation. Used topically, the oils are absorbed into your skin and enter your bloodstream. When inhaled, the essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves straight to the brain.
IS AROMATHERAPY FOR ME?
Most people seek an aromatherapist when their doctor can't help them, their medicine doesn't fully relieve their symptoms or causes new symptoms or they're looking for a natural alternative. Aromatherapy can help with many conditions; stress, headaches, depression, anxiety, hormones, skin conditions and sleep being the most common. However, aromatherapy can also help with Restless Leg Syndrome, panic attacks, digestive, respiratory, muscular, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, neurological, skeletal and immune conditions.
If you're being treated for cancer, please talk to your doctor before booking an appointment.
IS THE AROMATHERAPIST QUALIFIED?
Deena Peters completed a 600 hour advanced aromatherapy certification program in 2020 and is a Certified Aromatherapist. She is a member of the National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy and the Canadian Alliance of Aromatherapy and is insured.
An aromatherapy consultation is your first visit and involves completing a consent/disclaimer form and then a discussion regarding your current health conditions and concerns, medical background and medications. The aromatherapist will work with you to find a customized and holistic blend that is both pleasant and convenient for you to use.
The aromatherapist considers your health complaints, scent preferences, safety, convenience, and contraindications before making your unique blend. We offer full personalized service that focuses on you because we care about you and your health.
Please bring a list of medications with you. These appointments are one hour and are $60 plus the cost of your blend.
If you are concerned about using essential oils given your medical history, please consult with your GP prior to your appointment.
FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENTS
Once you have had an aromatherapy consultation, you may book a follow up appointment. Follow up appointments are 30 minutes and are $30 plus the cost of your blend (if applicable). If your original consultation was over a year ago, please book another consultation appointment.
WHAT TYPE OF CUSTOMIZED BLEND WILL I GET? HOW MUCH IS IT?
The conditions we will be targeting determine the format of your blend. Blends can come in a diffuser blend, inhaler, lotion, diluted oil blend, spray, bath salts or rollerball. Most blends cost between $10 and $25 but it depends on the format and the essential oils used. If not available immediately, your blend can be picked up or shipped to you. If you experience an adverse reaction, discontinue use immediately and contact us.

"Deena took the time to ensure that she understood what my issues were and to make sure that the oil she prepared would have a pleasant aroma. I enjoyed using it and still carry it in my backpack to use when needed. I would recommend this service anytime."

"I love having a scent that is customized just for me, where I choose the scents that resonate with me to create my own blend. In the end, this means I have a scent that helps me sleep and one I also enjoy the scent (very important!), rather than a generic blend that is ‘created for the masses’. Working with Deena was a very fun and positive experience. I now have a scent I enjoy, and one that has me sleeping much better!"
