Have you ever used AromaTherapy during a massage? We have to admit, it’s quite heavenly.
AromaTherapy oil is the fragrant essence of a plant. While the burst of divine scents will send you into relaxation bliss, there is more to AromaTherapy than just a sweet smell. Before you select which blend to add to your next treatment, read on for all the different benefits.
Peppermint – If you’re looking for a burst of energy, peppermint will awaken your senses. This oil has a cooling, refreshing effect and is widely used to enhance mental alertness. It’s also high in natural menthol, which aids in pain relief and increases circulation.
Rosemary – Feeling a little down lately? Rosemary is known to have antidepressant properties that make it ideal for enhanced memory, focus and overall brain performance. This oil also aids in soothing muscles and is great for headaches.
Lavender – One of the most popular AromaTherapy oils, lavender is used to relieve anxiety and stress. It is also known to support the respiratory system, fight off colds and promote restful sleep.
Patchouli – This essential oil has powerful skincare properties and is often used to help heal wounds. Patchouli also aids in relieving anxiety, depression and fatigue. It’s a strong scent, so use in small doses.
Chamomile – Like the tea, chamomile oil is a powerful calming agent. It’s known best for easing nervousness, irritability, and apprehension. Choose a chamomile for pure tranquility and balance.
