At the Tillman Health Spa, we offer the use of essential oils during a Hocatt treatment. We have 11 different ones to choose from, and each oil is beneficial for your health in different ways. Essential oils are highly concentrated oils created through the process of distillation. Dr. Josh Axe writes that the many health benefits of essential oils include reduced stress, better immunity, better digestion, higher levels of energy, pain reduction, reduction of toxicity, and better sleep. Essential oils are mostly used for aromatherapy, but can sometimes be used topically or be ingested, depending on the oil. However, since these oils are powerful, they should be put in a carrier oil when applied topically.
