Not just a store - Healing from the heart
Jan 2020
I was in Hoi An over the New Year period, and feeling a bit overwhelmed by the many tourists and crowds. At one point, we happened to pass by Essensian, a lovely holistic healing/ aromatherapy shop, and I was intuitively drawn in.
When I entered, I met Anh, a lovely woman who was able to immediately read what was going on with me. She offered me a quick healing treatment on the spot, and didn't ask any money for that.
I chose to purchase afterwards one of her essential oil mixes, and I have been using it daily to feel uplifted and to practice self care.
Anh is definitely a special soul. A wise woman, and full of knowledge and the ability to help others. Besides that, her shop is an oasis of calm and serenity in the lovely but sometimes chaotic town of Hoi An. I would highly recommend for people to stop in for a chat, to smell and buy oils and to share some of Anh's lovely energy.

Lovely shop but the staff were very rude

I visited this shop with my friend and we were just browsing when the shop assistant became very rude because we did not want to sit and test the products. The shop itself seems nice.

Thank you for visiting the shop. We must apologize for the misunderstanding : our products are sealed to protect the fragrance and avoid anything to interfere with our recipes. That is why we dispose some testers on the table so each one can try them while ensuring that the products that you buy are perfect as intended. We did gave you that information 3 times, but you still chose to open one sealed bottle. That means we were probably not clear enough with our explanations and we should not have reacted this way.

Incredibly rude
Mar 2020 • Friends
The selection of products was laughably small. The woman who runs the shop is the rudest person I have met in Vietnam (been traveling over a month here). 0/10 would recommend.

Amazing Healing Shop
Dec 2019
I came in with a cold needing help and Anh was able to not only guide me which oils would be beneficial but she also provided some free reflexology with the oils that helped me increase circultion and relieve some pressue. I really learned so much about oils in just one sitting. Not only that, but I also learned a little bit about the history of Vietnamese people. Both topics that she is passionate about. Make sure you visit her shop! You won't regret it!

Absolutely love the essential oils from this oasis of positive energy!
Mar 2019
I am now addicted to the peppermint flavor. So appreciative of Anh, the owner, for spending the time to explain the process and the benefits of the oils. She also has such an aura that made me feel instantly relax. I bought a set of five 8 months ago and now just ordered for more. So pleasant and calming. You're the best, Ánh!

Essensian - a place of healing energy and love.
Nov 2019
I had the wonderful fortune to meet Ms Anh at Essensian. For those who are into natural therapies and health care without chemicals – make it a definite place to visit. Anh is a beautiful soul and you will leave soaked in positive energy. Essensian is more than a shop, it is an experience that you will remember. Anh is a genuine healer who gives you her undivided attention by listening and her advice comes from a place of love and intellect. One of the best things you could do in Hoi An is to make your way to Essensian – it might just be the place you have always needed to go to.

A must stop in Hoi An
Sep 2019 • Solo
I came by Essensian shop on a Rainy day in Hoi An and was attracted by the smell and the decoration of the shop. Talking with Ms Ảnh- the owner gave me a lot of insightful ideas on how I can use essential oil for my acne’s problem. I bought facial stem and intensive oil for myself and was so happy with it!

Thank you to the most lovely and helpful girls
Feb 2019
I was travelling in Vietnam when I got really sick and didn't know what it was. For more than a week every part of my body hurt and especially my neck muscles were very tense and I couldn't really move. During tet most of the doctors were closed and by coincidence I found the little aromatherapy place essentian and I was welcomed by Hang and Anh. It is a cute small place where you instantly feel good.They made me feel like I am talking to friends, they even gave me tea and nuts. Anh treated me with peppermint oil and said that I have a wind stroke. She used the technique her grandmother tought her and scratched the oil into my skin, that became very red. After a day it was much better and I recovered quickly. I can't say how thankful I am for the help and hospitality of these amazing, beautiful girls!!!

Truly magical :)
Aug 2019 • Solo
After arriving in hoi an i came down with a terrible sinus infection; i really wanted something natural to try help and thats when i found Anhs place - it is truly magical.
After some tea and chats with Dong, Anh made me a special oil and helped me with a pressure point massage to help relieve the tension in my head. I came away feeling fantastic! And using the oil she gave me i am feeling better already!
Its not only the products they provide but the conversation and comfort! They are all really special people and i hope to go back before i leave and would recommend it to anyone looking for any sort of natural help!
