Tahoe Woman’s Club meeting centering on essential oils

Special to the Sun

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — The Women's Club of North Tahoe, dedicated to philanthropic and social activities, will hold its next semi-monthly luncheon meeting at Tomaato's Restaurant on Country Club Drive in Incline Village at noon Monday, March 16.

The program for this month's meeting will discuss "Health Through Essential Oils," presented by Tony Tuoto. The presentation will discuss alternatives for personal health care.

"Essential oils are a gift of the earth," said Tuoto, whose personal experience with essential oils is profound. "For centuries people of the world used essential oils to treat illnesses, colds, flus, headaches, infections, warts, gout, indigestion, asthma, etc.. The ancient Egyptians were believed to have used Frankincense to prevent wrinkles.

"As a matter of fact, when tomb raiders found Egyptian tombs the first things they stole were not the gold and jewelry, it was instead the essential oils left behind for the Pharaoh. After that they took the gold and jewels."

So what are essential oils?

"Essential oils are derived from plants. Many plants have essential oils that they use for their own defenses," Tuoto said. "Through modern technology we can extract the oils from the plants to create an incredibly concentrated, very effective and powerful oil that is 100% natural, safe to use, and without side effects like our synthetic drugs from our pharmacy."
