Welcome to La Luz Therapy’s “Lucy Rose Apothecary”
“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”.– Shakespeare. Well, what better way to open my new aromatherapy page than with a little Shakespeare! My middle name is Rosa so I thought I would take full advantage and, after many decades, put it to good use!! Welcome to Lucy Rose Apothecary where the shelves are stocked with ingredients to create these ancient yet simple recipes for good health and well-being.
The essential oil products I use are from Divine Essence based on their extraction method, their sustainable trade and development, and their superior quality, licensing and certification! Lotus Aroma is another local company here in Montreal with an equally wonderful reputation for their processing of essential oils and sustainable trade
Additionally, I use Thayer’s Witch Hazel (unscented aloe vera formula) for face and body sprays for its skin-soothing benefits in cases of mild burns, acne, inflammation, minor cuts and bruises and so much more. These are coming soon!
Aromalife 100% pure vegetable glycerine is used in the famous “poo” sprays for its ability to create a barrier and locking odours in the bowl. Additionally, my carrier oil of choice is Organic Almond oil not only for its light scent but its benefits on our skin. For those who are not aware, all essential oils must be diluted in a carrier oil if they will come in contact with the skin. This includes bath salts as well so the tub might get a little slippery. Be sure to use a mat. Although some oils can be used “neat” but under the direction of a practitioner and for a brief period to avoid skin irritation.
My bath products are made with Sea Salt, Epsom Salt, (Pink Himalayan salt coming soon) Bicarbonate of Soda, and of course, essential oils and carrier oils.
Ingredients used will be provided in each product description and items are made upon order request for the highest quality and freshness.
I am not being rewarded in any way to mention these products. For quality and safety purposes, I prefer full disclosure. These products are not intended to be ingested but using them topically as in sprays and baths, will, by their scent alone affect the olfactory bulb in the brain helping with relaxation due to stress or pain. Additionally, the dilutions (2%-3%) are such that they will be absorbed into the skin and benefit areas in the body that are injured or stressed. Essential oils have many healing properties when used with care and caution. Products for seniors and children contain no more than a 1% dilution. Custom made products are available. Use the Contact Form below.
As wonderfully beneficial as essential oils can be, they can be toxic to young children if not monitored properly and potentially detrimental to pets. It is not intended, by the information and products on this page to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any illness or disease. Using ancient healing techniques with herbs and plants, one can promote better health and quality of life when used with care. Essential oils do derive from nature and thus considered safe but there is still potential for skin irritations and other allergic reactions.
I am so excited to offer these wonderfully soothing bath salts and sprays infused with Reiki Love and Light energy as an added bonus. I used only the best quality organic essential oils for optimum results and safety. Products have been tested on humans for effectiveness…and they love them!!! Enjoy introductory prices until January 31, 2019. Pick up and delivery options available.
