When you make a great friend, the first thing you want to do is introduce them to everyone you know! That’s how we feel about Shankara Skin Care (“Shankara”), the 2017 iSPA Innovate Award winner and philanthropic skincare company we collaborated with to develop the exclusive essential oil blends that make our Elements Massage® AromaRitual® service enhancement so beautiful!
Shankara began when a group of wellness pros began exploring ways to create skincare that drew on the wellness wisdom of India and the western understanding of active ingredients. It was important that their results-driven products do more than deliver beauty benefits. They demanded that they work on physical, mental, and emotional levels to promote an overall sense of well-being. Almost twenty years later, their products and their ways of doing business live up to these ideas and more!
Shankara shares the brand’s mission to improve the lives of everyone we touch
Elements Massage studios are dedicated to improving the lives of everyone they touch, so we appreciate Shankara’s dedication to “honoring all life, upholding human values and celebrating harmony in diversity.” They live this culture by making green and sustainable choices, creating products that make people feel like their beautiful selves (instead of pushing them to live up to unhealthy beauty standards), and by giving 100% of their net profits (Yes, 100%!) to worthy causes like education, supporting veterans and getting oxygen tanks to hospitals in India crowded with Covid-19 patients.
Shankara’s most active ingredients: love, positivity, and good vibes
In addition to sourcing the cleanest, greenest ingredients possible, Shankara infuses all their products with love and goodwill! Here’s how.
In keeping with the practices and discoveries of people like Dr. Masaru Emoto, Shankara plays “high-vibrational” music in both their manufacturing and storage facilities. This type of music is thought to align and even reconfigure the structure of water and ice crystals into more beautiful, healing patterns. Shankara, in surrounding all their products with this music, believes they imbue their products with love and positivity that will, in turn, be passed on to you.
Does it work? You be the judge! The brand’s AromaRitual service enhancement features the following aromatherapy essences made exclusively for the Elements Massage brand by Shankara.
Calm: A ritual combining lavender, nutmeg, and black pepper that helps ease muscle pain, relieve headaches, and create an unparalleled sense of calm and overall well-being.
Refresh: This blend naturally purifies and refreshes the air, allowing you to breathe deeply, relax, and recharge. The cooling, balanced blend features eucalyptus, peppermint, and patchouli.
Sweet Orange: This pregnancy-safe blend uses orange, lemon, lime, and ylang-ylang to create an energizing and uplifting experience.
To give one a try, add the art of the AromaRitual service enhancement to your regular custom massage. It’s easy, just ask when you book your appointment!
If you really love it, add an AromaRitual service enhancement to your series of massage sessions. After all, there’s no such thing as too many good vibes.
