Plant Medicine

Essential Oils are plant medicine at its most intense. Modern pharmaceuticals are derived from strong medicinal plants. Pharmaceutical companies have extracted the single active component of the plant to create a particular medicine. Essential oils can be even more powerful since they come with all the benefits and wonders that were in the original plant.

Until man duplicates a blade of grass, nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favour compared with the products of nature, the living cell of the plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.” – Thomas A. Edison

Zen and Vitality both creates blends and sells full bottles of pure therapeutic grade essential oils from DoTERRA, Floracopeia, and more fabulous environmentally conscious companies. Zoa encourages and facilitates aromatherapy using the minimum amount of essential oils to accomplish the task. Environmental awareness of the plant community and the effectiveness of plant medicine on the body dictate wise choices about dilution and sourcing of essential oils.

Topical Essential Oil Blends by Zoa

Topical application of essential oils typically address body concerns first and emotions second. The following blends have been created by Zoa and are prepared to be applied directly to your skin. Since essential oils are such strong medicine, they are all diluted using cold-pressed organic jojoba oil from The Original Jojoba Company. Jojoba oil is the closes to your skin’s natural sebum production and absorbs more quickly than other commonly use oils (like coconut oil). Each 10 mL roller bottle blend described below costs $10-$20. Please contact Zoa about purchasing.
