Butterfly Essential Oils is a local business offering Young Living Essential Oils, Reflexology and Raindrop Technique Treatments. It is located at 201 S 4th Street on the corner of East Olive and located in the business complex of “It’s All About You,” health and beauty spa.
Grace Hays, business owner, has been a Certified Reflexologist since 1982 and a trained Raindrop Technique Practitioner since 2001.
Grace worked at Sandhaven Care Center (now Juniper Village) for 24 years, 22 of which were as the Certified Activity Director. In 1995, she had the great honor of being chosen as the National Activity Director of the Year.
In 1980 Grace began taking classes in Reflexology. Reflexology is an ancient healing technique which works on the nerve pathways of the feet and hands to bring balance and stress relief to the whole body. She received her training at the International Institute of Reflexology headquarted in St. Petersburg, Florida. Grace completed her educational requirements and became a Certified Reflexologist in 1982 and she is required to take continuing education classes every two years to maintain her certification.
For many years, Grace practiced reflexology on the side with her main focus being Activity Director at Sandhaven Care Center. In 1997 she was introduced to Young Living Essential Oils, a home-based business which promotes the health benefits of using essential oils. Grace became very active with Young Living Essential Oils, attending many classes, organizing speakers to give workshops and then even teaching classes herself on using Young Living Essential Oils and products. In 2001 she resigned her position at Sandhaven to pursue her work with Young Living full time and to dedicate time to her practice as a Reflexologist. So…Butterfly Essential Oils was born.
Grace was trained in Raindrop Technique Treatments in Dallas, TX in 2001. She was in one of the first groups to be trained in this technique by the instructor Gary Young – founder and president of Young Living Essential Oils. A Raindrop Treatment uses 7 essential oils on the feet, followed by 9 essential oils along the back and each is applied in a very specific way. The application of these essential oils is then followed by warm compresses on the back.
Grace did both of these treatments from her home for a long time. In 2011 she opened her shop in the “The All About You” complex at 201 S 4th Street. She incorporates Young Living Essential Oils and products in her daily life and every treatment that she does. She greatly enjoys visiting with clients and helping them to relax and feel better. One of her clients stated “I always feel like I’ve had a couple of wine coolers when I get out of the chair.”
Grace is very happy to be in “The All About You” complex. We offer a variety of services here including: Chiropractor / Acupuncture (Jon Anderson), Healing Hands Massage (Sherry Walls), Amazing You Therapeutic Exercise Center (Shannon Venturi & Candace Zordell) This business also includes a consignment gift shop, foot tub detox center, and MakesScents by Candace, DejaVu Hair and Nail Salon (Kynlee Emick and Katie Higgins), All About Skin –quality skin care—(Jo Goff) and Bio Feedback and Nutritional Counseling (Mark Morrison).
