What Aromatherapy Can Do For Your Spa Day

0 Comment

AROMATHERAPY

The pretty scents and lotions used at spas aren’t just pretty scents. Most of the time, those aromas are actually caused by essential oils that do a lot more than just tingle and smell good: they can influence your mind and body. (Get it? Aromas as in aromatherapy!)

So what exactly can aromatherapy do for you on your next holistic spa day?

Adding essential oils to your massage oil or lotion can help to provide the ultimate relaxation and rejuvenation experience. Aromatherapy massage utilizes the versatility of essential oils through both inhalation, influencing emotions and hormones, and by being absorbed through the skin. Alternative Medicine Expert Dr. Cathy Wong says that aromatherapy massage is particularly effective with stress- or emotionally-related conditions.

FACIALS

For facials, essential oils can be incorporated into both the facial steam as well as the face mask itself to aid in relaxation, soothe your skin, and exfoliate. After having your skin analyzed by an expert esthetician at Theresa’s Face and Body, they’ll be able to identify exactly what essential oils will be best for your skin type. Using a unique combination of oils, an aromatherapy facial can eliminate beauty problems like rosacea, sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Essential oils can also be incorporated into an acne facial or anti-aging facial to help clear your complexion, flush the capillaries and promote a healthy glow and moisturize the skin.

WAXING

Essential oils after face or body waxing can also help to soothe the skin. The best way to incorporate essential oils after a wax is to apply a cool compress and a few drops of lavender essential oil to soothe the treated area and expedite the healing process.

Also, Essential oils incorporated into spa services and spa body treatments such as body scrubs, facial peels and microdermabrasion is a wonderful way to help the skin recover quickly.
