Essential oils are extracted from plants making them a holistic and healthy addition to perfumes, face masks, massage oils and bath salts. At Hand & Stone, our most popular essential oil is Lavender. Eucalyptus and Peppermint are also essential oils used in our services. 

Each has unique benefits to assist the mind and body:


Lavender is noted for its relaxation benefits and used in therapeutic baths. Many consider lavender effective as an antiseptic for medicinal purposes or to help reduce headache pain. Lavender is also safe during pregnancy.


Peppermint oil has a stimulating and invigorating effect on the body. It can be used for muscular pain and headaches and can help aid digestion; a good example is peppermint tea. Peppermint is also a common oil used in mouthwashes.


The oil of eucalyptus aids in breathing and actually increases oxygen to cells. It is used as an expectorant and cough suppressant. The balancing effect from eucalyptus is well known for balancing the mind as much as it is known as an antiseptic for the skin. Eucalyptus makes every room smell fresh
