The Olfactory Connection
Our sense of smell has a unique memory. We often associate pleasant smells with warm memories and the opposite is true. Choosing aromatherapy oils that invigorate and inspire such as Citrus, Peppermint or Bergamot are ideal when you need a boost of energy. Relaxing, calming fragrances including Lavender and Ylang, Ylang and Jasmine are wonderful when you are seeking something soothing for the bath or an aromatherapy massage. Blending two or more essential oils together creates and entirely different vibe. Once you establish your favourite fragrances and blends, you will be excited to share them with your clients.
Endless Potential For Your Spa Practice
