Aromatherapy is using essential oils for specific beneficial reasons, both physical and psychological, and has been used for centuries for both medical and religious reasons. Some examples of these plant based essential oils from herbs, tree extracts and flowers are orange, lavender, and eucalyptus. Essential oils need to be diluted into milder oils, humidifiers, or lotions since they are extremely concentrated.
Essential oils are an option that our My Haven Laser & Spa clients can add on to their massage sessions to help improve their physical and mental well-being.
