Lavender has a sweet, floral, and woodsy aroma. It has been known for its pleasant scent and associated medicinal since the days of the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. It was mainly used for just its raw flowers and the scents and flavors. Today, it’s grown mainly in Northern Africa and the mountains of the Mediterranean and used, not as a raw flower, but to be distilled into an essential oil. There are many proven medical benefits of lavender essential oils. One of the most common benefits is its ability to help with anxiety and deeper sleep. That is why we recommend using this in the service room or at home in your bedroom. Not only will you enjoy going to sleep even more but you may also get a more sound night of sleep.
A hybrid of spearmint and watermint, peppermint oil has that fresh, strong, minty aroma that we have all come to know and love. While smelling great, the aromatic benefits are so plentiful that many people consider this oil one of the most beneficial on the market. Peppermint oil can promote clear nasal cavities and may help give relief from congestion and difficulty breathing. Peppermint oil is also believed to help soothe anxiety, boost energy, and enhance mental focus. This oil is a go-to around the holidays or even when you just want to sit down at home and get some work done. It’s also a great way to freshen up the living room or even a guest room if you’re expecting guests. It smells great and has amazing benefits, this essential oil is a no-brainer.
Popularized by the Aborigines of Australia, eucalyptus oil has a strong, distinct, soothing aroma. While giving any room an invigorating scent, it can also help you smell the room better, a real win-win! The most common aromatic benefits to eucalyptus oil are its positive effects on the respiratory system. It can help unclog sinuses, suppress coughs, and can help with chronic conditions like asthma, sinusitis, and bronchitis. This is a great essential oil to use throughout your home during that pesky flu season. Or, use it at work when you’re feeling a little stuffed up, put a few drops on to a tissue. This allows you to use the benefits of eucalyptus oil away from home without potentially disturbing others.
Can’t decide which of these three essential oils are right for you, don’t worry! LaVida Massage carries all three oils. They are 100% pure and steam distilled. Come in and smell for yourself just in our lobby or, take your massage to the next level, with an Aromatherapy enhancement!
