Aromatherapy for Sound Body and Mind

Published January 08, 2010        by Rae Ann

Aromatherapy BasketWhen choosing spa products, you probably have certain scents that you like best.  It may not be just because of how it smells, but how it makes you "feel".  That's where Aromatherapy comes in.

It is believed that different smells can influence our moods as well as our psychological and physical well-being. Aromatherapy starts with essential oils, which  is a liquid that is generally distilled (most frequently by steam or water) from the leaves, stems, flowers, bark, roots, or other elements of a plant.

Many different oils and scents can be used to create the atmosphere you are seeking.  Some scents and their effects are:


* Chamomile
* Rose

* Lavender
* Vanilla

* Clary Sage
* Neroli

* Rosemary
* Peppermint

To make a room mist out of pure essential oils, add 7-8 drops of each essential oil to a 1 ounce glass misting bottle filled with spring or distilled water. Shake well before each mist.

Our aromatherapy spa gift baskets make great any-occasion gifts for mothers, sisters and friends!
