The Benefits of Aromatherapy

What is aromatherapy?

It’s an alternative medicine treatment that uses fragrant essential oils to please and soothe the senses.

It is believed that inhaling essential oils used in aromatherapy stimulates a specific part of the brain. The various fragrances cause our brain to send signals to our body, releasing chemicals that make us feel relaxed, calm and refreshed in the process. Massages or baths complement the effects of the oils.

Essential oils are extracted from plants through processes like distillation and can aid with relief from anxiety and stress. They are highly concentrated and can be inhaled directly with a diffuser or can be applied to the skin with carrier oils through massages, lotions or bath salts.

Common essential oils used in aromatherapy include lavender, eucalyptus, chamomile, cedarwood, rose, lemongrass and tea tree to name a few.

Lavender is one of the more popular essential oils used in aromatherapy. The scent is soothing and the oil can be applied to the skin without a carrier oil in small amounts. Our 50-minute massage features a lavender-based cream and serum that is blended perfectly to excite the senses.
