Essential oils in Aromatherapeutic skincare does it all.
A clinical Aromatherapist has a thorough understanding of the function and structure of the skin, skincare routines and performing aromatherapy facial treatments.
Essential oils are ideally suited to skincare because they are readily absorbed through the skin, they have antiseptic properties, help speed up the removal of old skin cells, stimulate the growth of new skin cells, improve muscle tone and circulation, help eliminate waste, reduce inflammation, regulate sebum production and reduce the impact of emotional stress.
Essential oils can be easily blended with base creams, lotions, ointments, gels, masks, scrubs, floral water or perfume. These carriers are made from natural products such as vegetable oils and have properties which are moisturising, skin protective, skin softening, and supply essential fatty acids and vitamins which have healing properties.
The biggest benefit of aromatherapy skincare is that essential oils have an ability to positively shift emotional states. Since the skin is often a reflection of emotional unease the oils can be used to reduce and soothe the underlying disharmony improving the health and vitality of the skin.
Facial massage with essential oils and a carrier specific to your skin type and emotional state is an important youthful aging technique used in the full body aromatherapy massage.
Massage to the facial region has the following benefits:
• Stimulates blood flow, increasing oxygen which improves skin tone
• Relaxes facial muscle tension, softening facial expression
• Stimulates lymphatic circulation assisting with elimination of toxins
• Helps to dispel tiredness, leaving you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated.
