Health & Harmony

with Joanna Castle


Through the ages it is been proven that certain aromatherapy oils calm the mind and psyche, while others stimulate the senses, induce euphoria or have aphrodisiacal qualities.

Pure Essence products are made form pure essential oils from around the world. There are no synthetic scents or animal products in Pure Essence. Synthetic scents are the primary cause of allergies and chemical reactions to scents for many people.
