Certified Aromatherapist/ Licensed Massage Therapist
Welcome! My name is Jessica Fields and I am the face and heart behind Seven Pines Apothecary. I began my holistic journey about seven years ago when I made a decision that literally changed my life forever. I decided I was going to finally put myself first and follow the path of my life's calling. I became a nationally licensed massage therapist through Cortiva Institute. During this journey, I quickly adapted the philosophy of self care through holistic healing. Along the way I began my love affair with essential oils. I found myself drawn to them in a very curious way. I was fascinated by the variations of aromas and the idea that every essential oil came from nature. Even though I accumulated many oils over the years, I was still confused as to their purpose and benefits. I’ve heard so many wonderful stories about how essential oils have helped a variety of issues for people and I wanted to know why. In my quest to learn more about these little gems, I started to play around with different combinations and applications. I started creating blends for my family and friends and quickly realized how powerful these oils can be. I was hooked! To deepen my knowledge of essential oils I became a certified aromatherapist through Aromahead Institute. Seven Pines Apothecary was naturally the next step in my Aromatherapy journey.
Growing up in Pennsylvania I have been surrounded by nature and colors my whole life. My mother is an avid gardener, the sweet aroma of her rose gardens filled the air surrounding our house for many months throughout the year. Huge pine trees lined the street right in front of our house, seven pine trees to be exact. The pines took over our front yard with their lush branches, fallen needles and pine cones. I have fond memories of playing in the pine trees with my sister throughout our childhood. We played with the sap the pines naturally created, making mud pies and witches stew. The pine trees provided shade for us on sunny days, provided shelter from the rain and looked like a winter wonderland when it snowed. A wide variety of wildlife have made homes in the pines throughout the years. A day hasn’t gone by where we don’t hear the birds singing and see the squirrels playing amongst the branches. Those pine trees are a part of who I am today. The fresh, sometimes sweet, sometimes citrusy, woodsy, herbal aroma is one of my favorite scents. Which is why you will find a touch of pine or wood in most Seven Pines Apothecary products.
We like to pay homage to the beautiful flowers, leaves, woods, fruits, seeds, grass, roots and resigns that grow so naturally on this planet. Essential oils are nature's precious gifts for us to use to help facilitate well being on every level. This includes addressing the whole body; physically, emotionally and energetically. Using my knowledge of essential oils and the body, mind and spirit I have custom crafted essential oil blends and aromatherapy products to support health and well being. So much thought and intention has gone into every product that we offer. Every blend is made to order with gratitude and care. We believe in allowing the oils to have a voice of their own and do not use any synthetics or additives in our products. There are many essential oils available today but the ones that we choose to work with have to meet our highest standards. We are proud to say that the essential oils and carriers we use are 100% organic, pure, sustainable, cruelty free, vegan and GC/MS tested. GC/MS stands for Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry. This test is the best way to ensure the purity and quality of each oil, making sure there are no additives or synthetics mixed in. Adulterated oils or "perfume/fragrance oils" can cause sensitivities such as allergies, skin irritation and headaches. GC/MS testing also informs us on the therapeutic benefits and the safety considerations of each oil determined by their chemical makeup.
Essential oils are from the earth, there are no synthetic fragrances or chemicals in the oils we choose to work with or the products we create. Perfumes made with chemicals are made specifically to last a long time using one application. You will find that you might need to apply our natural products a few times a day to ensure a lasting effect and aroma. Essential oils are absorbed by our skin, giving us wonderful therapeutic, energetic and emotional benefits. It is important to always use a carrier oil before applying essential oils onto your skin to reduce the possibility of skin irritation. Always keep essential oils away from children and pets. Store in a cool dark area with the cap secured tightly. These oils are for external use only. Purchasing products from a certified aromatherapist to ensure the proper safety precautions is important. We have many products that are safe for children but if you would like further information on products for children please message us.
Essential oils are very powerful plant based substances that, when used correctly can have wonderful benefits. I am not a doctor and I do not have the authority nor the training to diagnose and treat specific medical conditions. I can not prescribe or replace any medical treatment. It is out of my scope of practice. However, based on my education and experience, I am able to make suggestions on the use of essential oils to benefit your health and well being and make really beautiful products!
