What Is Aromatherapy?

what is aromatherapy

Aromatherapy is just that. Two words – Aroma & Therapy smashed together.  It’s the very clever use of different scents and aromas to invoke a feeling or even an emotion.

Aromas or scents can trigger emotional responses, physical responses and allow vivid memory recall of people of places. It’s likely you’ve had such a response.

Have you ever walked past a complete stranger and the scent of their perfume or aftershave has taken you back to a past memory of a time, place or person? 

It’s happened to me several times, and the response I had was immediate and deeply felt.

This is the power of aromatherapy.

Scents can help transform our moods and move us from one state of mind to another. It’s powerful stuff.

That’s why we allow you to choose your massage oil with a “sensory test” before each massage treatment.

Don’t worry, it’s not a pass or fail situation!

We simply let your body decide which aromatherapy oil you need, right now, in this moment. We will offer you two scents to deeply inhale and ask which scent you are more drawn to.

So whether it’s the comforting woody blend of myrrh, sandlewood and rose geranium in our Soothing oil, the invigorating and refreshing scent of peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary of our Energising blend, or the calming botanical blend of sweet orange, lavendar and palmarosa in our Restorative oil, we let your body decide for you before you drift away and enjoy a tension relieving massage.
