Aromatherapy – it’s more than just a smelly massage! Essential oils are the pure ‘essences’ extracted from flowers, berries, fruits, herbs & trees & have been used for thousands of years for their aromatic, therapeutic & restorative properties.
Plants use their scent & chemical components to attract pollinators, repel predators or resist disease. Their essences can have an impact on us too and can be absorbed through the skin, our biggest organ, or inhaled to trigger certain effects in us. We respond emotionally more to smell than to any of our other senses making essential oils a powerful addition to a massage. Different oils can be blended together to support your health or emotional needs.
