Aromatherapy All-Stars

October 25th, 2012

If plants were people…

Jasmine would be the sexy siren. She’s an exotic beauty and her scent is alluring. She radiates happiness and warmth.

Cardamom would be definite boyfriend material. He’s the perfect combination of sweet and spicy, and never fails to come to your rescue when you’re feeling sick, stressed or off your game.

Lavender would be everybody’s sweetheart. She’s cool, calm and here mere presence puts everyone around her at ease.

We admit it – at 21 Drops we’re really passionate about essential oils. So passionate, in fact, that we liken them to people. Like human beings, every essential oil has its own unique power, energy and scent. And like human beings, when they’re put together as a team, they can make something really great.

Cary Caster combines essential oils to craft the 21 Drops aromatherapy blends.  21 Blends. 21 Solutions. From Headache to Heartache.

Each essential oil in our master-crafted blends is a player on the 21 Drops team, bringing its own star quality to the formulas. And Cary Caster, a clinical aromatherapist and the creator of 21 Drops, is the coach. She knows the nature of every player and positions them together to create a “winning” combination.

Without further ado, we’d like to introduce you to some of our all-star players.
