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.

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!

Essensian saved my skin !
Go there, sit at the table, have a tea with the girls, explain what you need or just ask them about the products and enjoy ! I needed to purify my skin, they gave me marvelous advices and marvelous natural products, now my face is clear and bright.
In you need a break, you should stop there, the place is also very peaceful.

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.

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.

A wonderful shop selling essential oils from Vietnam and around the world, oil roll-ons, oil facial products, oil soaps, and many other essential oil fusions. The owner is a mindful chemist, creating wonderful items that are generated from green, environmentally-friendly sources. She is also a yogi, and a yoga teacher! She has studied all over the world. She has great knowledge about where the oils come from, whether they are oils from Vietnam or oils from abroad. She also gave me some wonderful info regarding oils that are not being properly harvested and sold in some areas around the world, like sandalwood for example. The shop is beautifully decorated, and the products will speak for themselves. Whether you use essential oils or not, come check out this place, it is beautiful, and has great energy the moment you step in. The staff members are wonderful, they all speak English fluently, and are of great help. Ask about the workshops, and yoga retreats!

C'est en jetant un œil à l'étage de la magnifique maison « Hoi An Handicraft Workshop» à l'architecture coloniale que nous avons découvert cet atelier d'huiles essentielles. L'atelier est conduit dans un très bon anglais par Ngoc Anh, une jeune chimiste passionnée et hyper sympa, formée à la fois en Asie et en France et qui fabrique elle même ses huiles essentielles.
Découverte des huiles, des diverses utilisations, puis choix, mélange et ajustement... Nous sommes repartis avec 2 flacons adaptés à nos souhaits et besoins (un soin pour le visage et un mélange pour les problèmes respiratoires). Anh a pris le temps de nous expliquer tout ce que nous voulions savoir pendant plus de 2 heures ! Un super atelier que nous recommandons vivement à tous ceux qui s'intéresse à ce sujet !
Coût de l'atelier en avril 2016 : 490 000 dongs p/pers

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!

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!

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.
