Using essential oils for an Aromatherapy Massage has become very popular in the west in recent years.

It is easy to understand why, not only do the oils have a wonderful fragrance that one gets enveloped within during the massage, the oils also have medicinal properties. 홈타이

The oils, being distilled from aromatic parts of plants, such as flowers, bark, leaves or roots are very complex chemical compounds, believed to contain the “essence” of the plant.

While many of the oils have balancing effects on our systems such as, respiratory, digestive, circulatory and hormonal, they also have anti viral, anti fungal and anti microbial effects.

While some massage therapists may use the oils for their physical properties, they also have a profound effect on the mind.

Inhaling the aroma puts it in direct contact with the brain, via the nose. Modern imaging techniques will show the different oils have different effects on different parts of the brain.

Oils that are considered to be calming are: Lavender, Chamomile, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang, Mandarin, Geranium.

Uplifting, energizing oils are: Peppermint, Basil, Ginger, Cardamom, Black Pepper

Some oils to gain a sense of peace: Neroli, Frankincense, Melissa, Spikenard, Yarrow

When scheduling an AromaTherapy Massage [] a good question to ask is if the oils are selected for you personally. While there are many blends already pre made for a variety of uses, having your blend selected based on your body, and your mind can make a real difference.

Before your massage, do not overindulge in caffeine or a heavy meal. Make sure you have some time to relax after your aromatherapy massage. Do avoid showering for the reminder of the day, allowing the oils to continue being absorbed through your skin.
