The Nose Knows
The practice of using essential oils dates back to Egyptian times – in fact, it’s been said Cleopatra was a fan. Today, aromatherapy is used in a wide range of spa treatments to promote wellbeing and stimulate the senses. From massage to facials to hydrotherapy, fragrant essential extracts -sourced from plants, flowers, and herbs – are applied for their therapeutic benefits. Studies show aromatherapy not only improves your mood, but also may reduce stress levels and treat insomnia. We say aromatherapy just makes sense!
Know Before You Go
1. Not only is aromatherapy used to set the mood in a spa, it’s celebrated for healing purposes as well. Step into any spa, and one of the first things you’ll notice is a signature scent wafting in the air. 2. Different natural oils are used for different therapeutic benefits—for example, lavender has a calming effect, while citrus scents can be energy boosting. 3. Speak with your therapist about what you’d like to accomplish during your treatment, and then choose the aromatherapy oil that is right for you.
