It’s a new year which means that most everyone has made some sort of New Year’s resolution that involves exercising, healthy eating or self-care.
For the past several years essential oils have become popular as a way to treat headaches, help with moods and general well being. However, finding some of the oils, teas, herbs or natural cooking spices used to be a challenge in Wright.
That’s where mother and daughter team Kayla Carter and Jamie Swingholm come in. The pair opened Essential Blessings/Kayla’s Natural Inspirations in the Latigo Hills Mall.
“We used to have to travel to Gillette for special health products which can get expensive,” Swingholm said.
Both women have been using DoTerra oils for many years and have several pre-made options and can also make custom orders to fit your individual needs. They can create a variety of lotions, bath salts and sprays.
Carter is currently studying to become a certified Herbalist and the first Clinical Aroma Therapist in Wyoming. She will be available for consultations and help achieve a higher level of health.
“Everyone is invited to come relax, drink some tea and learn more about natural health,” Carter said.
The duo will be offering weekly learning sessions and a monthly mingle to help everyone who is interested in natural remedies.
“The learning sessions will go over various oils, immunity, kids, pregnancy and much more,” Carter said. “Each class will focus on a different topic.”
The new store will be open daily except Saturday, and they welcome everyone in the area to their open house on Jan. 22 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (with ribbon cutting to kick things off) where you can enjoy beverages and snack foods made with essential oils and natural herbs.
