A therapeutic massage provided with the indulgence of scented oil via aromatherapy and the healing powers of essential oils. When we “take time to smell the roses”, there may be more to it than we think. Each plant oil has its own set of properties that are useful for a multitude of things.
Aromatherapy uses pure essential oils in a skillful and controlled manner to influence mind, body and soul for physical and emotional health and wellbeing. Applied to the body within a carrier oil, once diluted the essential oil is applied directly to the skin it is completely absorbed and penetrates deeply into the tissues, interstitial fluid and bloodstream.
Different oils have varying rates of absorption, but when essential oils are applied in a body massage, they are carried to specific organs and systems of the body where they enhance the natural functions of these organs.
The essential oils also compliment one another’s effects in a synergistic way; they are nourishing and easily absorbed by the skin. By simply inhaling an essential oil elicits an immediate olfactory response and provides for ready absorption in the bloodstream. Essential oils as implied by the term “Aromatherapy”, have a powerful effect through our sense of smell.
