The health benefits of essential oils are largely recognized in holistic health care fields such as Naturopathy, Homeopathy, Ayurveda and Chiropractic to name a few. We use them extensively in our Spa services to eliminate nervous tension, enhance blood circulation and relieve pain. Certain essential oils can be applied directly to the skin while others need a carrier oil for dilution. Many oils achieve their highest efficacy when they are introduced through our respiratory systems in the form of inhalation. One of the best ways to get essential oils into the air is through a diffuser which uses water and drops of essential oils which are then turned into a very fine mist that we breathe.
One of the most common remarks we hear from our guests is how wonderful our Salon and Spa smells when they walk through our doors. Generally we use Lemongrass essential oil in our diffuser which both revitalizes and relaxes our nervous system. During the holidays we make a few of our own blends with oils such as clove and cinnamon which have antibacterial and antiseptic properties. A diffuser with well chosen essential oils can really boost immunity during cold and flu season. Lavender essential oil is highly beneficial for relaxing and helping induce a restful sleep, while Peppermint and Eucalyptus oils can soothe congestion and headache as well as ease scratchy throats.
We have two new diffusers from Floracopeia. One is the ultrasonic diffuser ($65) we use on the daily here in Lemongrass which now comes in black. The second is a new model entirely made of glass and wood called the Illumamist. It has a built in timer option and emits a peaceful soft white glow. ($95)
Give the gift of wellness to yourself or someone you love with a beautiful Floracopeia Diffuser and one or two essential oils. (We have loads of essential oils to choose from.) You will love the results.
