Aromatherapy massage and essential oils, a perfect match

Aromatherapy massage uses essential oils (highly concentrated plant oils) and its main focus is relaxation and mindfulness.

In general, the essential oils are made of plant extracts which capture the plant “essence”. After the extraction procedure, the essential oils are mixed with normal oils and made ready for use.

During an aromatherapy massage, you both inhale these essential oil molecules and absorb them through your skin.

A massage is a very pleasant and relaxing experience and can be even more intense if associated with aromatherapy in order to restore well-being to the entire body, both physically and emotionally and mentally.

The aromatherapy massage therefore combines the maneuvers of a specific technique, such as that of the decontracting, lymphatic drainage or relaxing massage, with specific oils, based on the benefits and objectives that you want to draw from the treatment.

In general, the aroma massage is indicated in case of stress, muscle tension, internal conflicts; it helps lymphatic and blood circulation, detoxification and brings well-being.

The massage is performed with a base oil such as sweet almond oil, to which drops of the chosen essential oil are added, depending on the purpose.

  • For a harmonizing massage: base oil + EO Orange - Mandarin - Lemon balm - Lavender
  • For a purifying massage: base oil + EO Lemon - Sandalwood - Cypress
  • For a relaxing massage: base oil + EO Lavender - Myrtle - Neroli - Clary sage
