Therapeutic Use of Essential Oil

We all know people who are involved in the use and sale of essential oils. Although it can appear like a fad, the basis for using essential oils for health purposes is backed by research, clinical experience, and a millennia of folk medicine alike. Essential oils were used in biblical times, ancient Egyptian culture, ancient Chinese culture, and ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, followed by continued use into more modern times in all of these cultures.

From the use of lavender for anxiety to the use of sacred frankincense to stem brain tumor growth, the scientific evidence in favor of adding essential oils to the arsenal of holistic therapies grows daily. At Tavicare, we are pragmatists, and we use what works to help you feel better. We favor non-intrusive approaches that do no harm while offering therapeutic benefit.

At Tavicare we use essential oils as adjunctive therapies for anxiety, depression, hormonal imbalance, menopausal symptoms, adrenal issues, and accelerated aging, among other things. The oils we use are pure and organic, and of the highest grade. Feel free to inquire about our oils while at the office.
