According to Peter Holmes, L.Ac, M.H. of Snow Lotus Genuine & Full Spectrum Essential Oils, “The Snow Lotus collection of artisan essential oils represents my professional standard of excellence for oils intended for clinical and home-care aromatherapy.” His company’s oils are “absolutely pure and of the highest quality.”
Peter Holmes is a researcher, author and lecturer, as well as a practitioner of Oriental Medicine and a medical herbalist. He has studied with well-known practitioners in his field such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) author Ted Kaptchuk and pharmacist-herbalist Henri Verdier.
Long ago, Holmes had been looking for “fragrant jewels” with “remarkable healing effects on the body, mind, and soul,” not simply commercially, chemically standardized oils easily found in stores. His journeys took him around the globe, visiting grassroots producers of oils, because “my search was for distillers who worked in the time honored artisan way, living with the very source of the plant materials.”
He located indigenous family businesses that distilled the plants “in the traditional manner for an extended length of time, using low-temperature steam and low vapor pressure.” Not surprisingly, he still works with these families to this day.
Often, it is the very plants that are overlooked for herbal medicine that are used for essential oils. Some examples of these oils are Ylang-Ylang for a fast heart beat, palpitations and high blood pressure, Geranium for skin issues and women’s health, and Palmarosa for bacterial, fungal and viral invasions. Amazingly, the natural chemical components of the original plant are retained within the oil when ready for market.
The oils are easily incorporated into a variety of uses. For example, they may be used in therapeutic spas, during massage treatments, during TCM treatments (genuine essential oils trigger healing responses in the body and mind just as acupuncture needles do), as first aid remedies, on 100% beeswax candles, and internally when under a trained practitioner’s supervision. In fact, the uses are only limited by a general lack of education. They are a great gift idea because they are helpful for people in their quest to gain balance with symptoms, such as inflammation and infections, without harming their intestinal flora, or the environment.
Just open a bottle of these “Eco-wild” oils and smell the difference!
