What is Aromatherapy?

Posted · Add Comment

Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils (naturally extracted aromatic essences from plants) to help promote physical and psychological well-being.

The essential oils used in aromatherapy come from the distillation of the leaves, wood, petals, buds, needles, bark or roots of aromatic botanicals such as lavender, rosemary, cedarwood, rose, peppermint, and cypress. While most essential oils are water or hydro distilled, citrus essential oils are either cold pressed or steam distilled from the rinds (peels) of citrus fruits.

The most common use of essential oils currently is to diffuse them in your home. However, there’s a new way that is rapidly growing in popularity; essential oil diffuser necklaces.

While essential oils are too concentrated for use directly on the skin when undiluted, one way to get the benefits of your favourite blend everywhere you go is to put a few drops of your favourite essential oil on to the diffuser pad in this necklace and you will not only smell great but look great! And don’t worry, once you use a pad for one oil, you are not stuck using only that same scent. Over time the oil will evaporate, at which time you can add more, or switch it up to a new blend.

Be sure to check out the selection of diffuser necklaces we have at the spa during your next Relaxation Aroma Massage or Aroma Massage Therapy reservation.
