Practical Uses For:

Petitgrain Essential Oil

Petitgrain essential oil comes from the bitter orange tree, made from the young branches and unripe fruits (that look like small grains). This essential oil has a very powerful effect balancing the nervous system and as an anti-depressant.

All uses are suitable for this essential oil whose components are as gentle of those of lavender. You can use it in your neutral creams for oily skin or scalp as well as in air diffusion, or in the bath to soothe stress, agitation, depression and bad mood!

Éléonore's Ayurvedic Tip

Get your optimal energy level

In Ayurveda, we consider that even the smallest changes or adjustments can have a big impact on our health.

At first glance, the links between nutrition, time spent on the computer, digestion, and our energy level can be difficult to understand; but all these parameters are connected!

Read Éléonore's Ayurvedic tips to get your energy level back on our blog.

Loving Practice

Thai Massage has lead me to reflect on how I live my life. It has given me the opportunity to grow and to be a better person. Each day has given me new perspectives on how wonderful my world truly is. It begins with compassion. Thai Massage is a practice of "loving kindness" and the very definition of the word Metta. A practice of everyone's natural instinct of wanting to help. We are now an ever growing society full of fears and our ability to share has been over shadowed by hatred and ambiguity.

Thai Massage gives us the opportunity to face our basic fears of connecting to others. Choosing to plant seeds for a better community and for a better self. It takes strength to practice what we preach, it takes strength to transform, it takes strength to be who we truly are.

Join me in embracing mind and body; one compassionate touch at a time.

Director of Lotus Palm
