A new aroma-therapy store has opened in downtown Cortez at 37 E. Main St.
Eclectic Aromas offers essential oils and accessories, free consultations on their benefits and ionic detoxification foot baths.
“I wanted to bring something new to town,” said owner Brittny Weir. “I’ve been working with essential oils for many years and have a background in health care.”
The store also has bath salts and aroma therapy candles, soaps, necklaces, plus local artwork.
A line of herbal salves will arrive soon.
There are many benefits to aroma therapy, including helping to ease headaches, congestion, upset stomach, cramps and muscle soreness.
“There are a lot of positive benefits beyond the scent,” Weir said. “I offer free, in-depth consultations where people can come in and learn about the specific benefits of each oil with no pressure to buy.”
Hours are Thursday and Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. There will be a grand opening on April 23 beginning at 5 p.m. Call (970) 560-0919 for more information.
