You’ve likely heard the phrase “Stop and smell the roses,” but have you stopped to think about what gives the roses their unique scent?

The natural aromatic qualities found in the seeds, bark, roots and flowers of a plant are known as essential oils. In addition to giving plants their powerful fragrance, essential oils have long been used for their wide range of emotional and physical benefits.
Misty Calhoun, owner of Yamafit in Edwardsburg, has always taken a holistic approach to healing. So when she learned that essential oils could replace many of the items in her medicine cabinet, Misty knew she had to give them a try.
“I’m not someone who likes taking prescription drugs but I felt like I didn’t have any other choice when my family or I would get sick or experience pain — that was until I learned about essential oils,” Misty said.
