What Is An Aromatherapy Massage?
In an aromatherapy massage, individual aromatic blends are prepared by the practitioner, in a base of cold pressed oil and then applied to the patient's skin through a remedial or relaxing massage. It is important that they are not used directly on the skin, as burning or rashes could occur.
Why Should You Give Aromatherapy a Try?
As a holistic treatment, aromatherapy can have a profound effect on physical and psychological wellbeing. There exists the belief that scent, as the most enduring of our senses, has the power to transform our emotions, and heal our bodies.
Benefits Of Using Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy can have a wide range of benefits, from the physical to the emotional. The benefits of essential oils can be obtained through inhalation or by external application.

Common colds and flu

Doterra Essential Oils
The Doterra Essential Oils used in aromatherapy are extracted from plants and herbs to treat conditions ranging from infections and skin disorders to immune deficiencies and stress. When aromas are detected in the nasal cavity, impressions associated with previous experiences and emotions are created.
Combining this with the fact that the parts of the brain that control heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, memory, stress levels and hormone balance are also related to the nasal cavity, it is evident that the use of essential oils contributes to and achieves many physiological or psychological effects.
Some common oils used in Aromatherapy and their uses include:
Eucalyptus: for congestion/colds
Frankincense: for calming emotions and nightmares
Geranium:for menopausal problems & PMS Lemongrass; for sore or injured muscles
Lavender: for relaxation
Peppermint: for quick energy

Why Should You Try an Aromatherapy Massage or Facial?
Renewal and Restorative Benefits
Essential oils provide a number of restorative benefits to your complexion. According to the Anti-Aging Choices website, essential oils aid the regeneration of skin by soaking into the dermal layer and stimulating the growth of new skin cells.
Regeneration is necessary to keeping the skin on your face looking healthy and toned. Furthermore, skin renewal is essential to repairing burned or damaged skin. In addition to deep layer repair, essential oils can provide cooling, soothing relief when applied topically to cuts, burns, wounds or rashes. It is often suggested using Vitamin E oil, lavender, myrrh or patchouli for treating wounds and rashes.
Prevention and Treatment Benefits
Essential oils can help maintain the health of your complexion by keeping it free of toxins and dirt build-up. Sebaceous glands produce the oils that hydrate your skin. If the glands produce too much oil, your complexion will appear greasy and your skin may begin to break out. Conversely, if the glands do not produce enough oil, your face will appear dry and dull.
Essential oils can help balance oil production by regulating sebaceous secretions, the Anti-Aging Choices. Furthermore, essential oils can help reduce the risk of infection by helping the skin release the toxins and dirt that clog pores. By keeping the pores free of build-up, essential oils help prevent the growth of bacteria that could lead to infection. Your skin can be cleaner, clearer and healthier. Eucalyptus, lemon oil and tea tree oil are particularly good for the prevention and treatment of acne.
In order to prevent wrinkles and other signs of aging, your skin needs to be properly hydrated. Essential oils deeply penetrate the skin's layers, allowing for the hydration at the dermal layer that will keep your skin supple and soft. Using an essential oil as a deep moisturizing treatment can help maintain a youthful-appearing complexion. Oils such as jojoba and sandalwood are good moisturizers and help prevent wrinkles.
Treating Common Issues
Essential oils can also be used to treat a number of less common skin problems. Although not generally harmful to your health, a bite or a wart on your face can make you feel self conscious. For treating bites, Anti-Aging Choices suggests chamomile and eucalyptus. For warts, try lavender and tea tree oil.
