About Aroma and Crystals
Welcome! My name is Leslie Smith and after 40 years in corporate America I took the bold step to start my own business. Aromatherapy and spirituality is a big passion of mine and I have been blending essential oils for the last 20 years. Naturally, I chose to name my company Aroma And Crystals. Perfect, right?
In addition to offering essential oils, I've created a monthly mystery subscription box, called Intention.
The “Intention” Box will always have a full-size Essential Oil roll-on (10ml) and of course a crystal or stone. Each month will have a different theme and include other items like Ayurvedic teas, jewelry, candles.....Well I don’t want to give away all the mystery of what is to come.
My intention is to create excitement, empowerment, and high vibrational energy with each of these boxes. Instructions for ceremony, purpose of crystals and what they mean will be included. Most importantly, I make or handpick what goes into each box. All with intention.
I look forward to fulfilling your order!
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are not really “oils”. They are highly concentrated liquid that comes from the plant’s roots, bark, leaves, flowers or fruit which are processed by steaming or pressing to produce the fragrance.
It takes thousands of flower petals to create the drops that are in a single bottle of rose oil and a few drops of peppermint essential oil has approximately the same concentration as 20 bags of peppermint herbal tea.
Quality of essential oils can vary widely. Essential oils come from all over the world, and suppliers or companies usually obtain oils from farmers or wholesalers whose practices and integrity they have come to trust over time. I have been with my supplier for 20 years.
Essential oils should not be ingested. Essential oils can be applied to the skin, used for massages to bath salts. Some EO are highly concentrated and can cause skin irritation. These EO should be used with a carrier oil such as Fractionated Coconut Oil. FCO does not have a scent and has a longer shelf life than most other carrier oils.
Essential Oils can lift your mood, relieve stress and promote good sleep. As your olfactory senses do not turn off while sleeping, it makes for an excellent time to use a little lavender oil.
