No home spa experience is complete without the magical effects of aromatherapy – a spa therapy exploiting the therapeutic aromatic properties of some pleasantly fragrant, plant-derived, volatile essential oils called bath oils. Some of these bath oils can be directly messaged into the skin before entering the home spa, while others are added to the water in the home spa. Alternatively, the vapors of these bath oils can be inhaled directly from the air if you infuse them in your home spa area, say by spraying or by lighting a scented candle.
Nature has a storehouse of aromatic plants and herbs – some known and some still unknown – that yield beneficial bath oils for spa use. The bath oils derived these aromatic plants have long been known for their medicinal properties. When used in spa therapies, they help get relief from aches and pains (muscular as well as rheumatic), stress, fatigue, depression, anxiety, etc. and have a relaxing and soothing effect on the body and mind. Aromatherapy is believed to work through stimulation of the olfactory nerves by these aromatic bath oils.
