Spa Gift Vouchers for Aromatherapy Spa Parties

Some spa resorts offer affordable spa gift vouchers for aromatherapy spa parties. As we all know, scents that waft into our nostrils have profound effect on our mood and wellness. The smell of chocolate chip cookies being baked and the smell of freshly cut grass on warm summer mornings, for example, can possibly alter our moods and attitude. These scents and many others affect and promote health and harmony of the mind, body and spirit. In a way or another, such fact is among the many reasons why aromatherapy is used as a health and wellness procedure and is common on spa parties.

A spa party is generally held to promote health and wellness via a selection of spa services provided by health professionals such as massage health therapists. Spa services include health massage therapy, facials and skin treatment and aromatherapy among others. Aromatherapy is usually incorporated with other spa services.

Massage therapists, for instance, may weave a bit of aromatherapy by using a diffuser which allows a chosen scent or aromatherapy blend to permeate the air in a light, lingering and constant manner throughout the spa session. Aromatherapy may also be integrated in spa parties and spa services by placing a drop or two of a chosen scent on the palm of the hands and holding these above the client’s face. The massage therapist may then ask client to breathe in deeply for a few times. This way, the aroma is inhaled by the client.

Another way to integrate aromatherapy in spa parties is by adding a few drops of essential oils to carrier oil and using these blends as a bodywork lubricant. This method will allow you and your guests to inhale the scents throughout the session. Such bodywork lubes will also be absorbed by the skin.

One reminder though. Essential oils have their own specific attributes, so you need to carefully choose which essential oils to use in aromatherapy. Ylang ylang essential oils, for example, is proven effective relieving muscle tension and in improving poor mood state. Roman chamomile, on the other hand, is considered the best choice for individuals with high levels of stress and anxiety. Carefully select an essential oil and follow instructions carefully. This way, you will be able to maximize the benefits of a health spa center and the goodness of aromatherapy.
