Aromatherapy may be used as a single note scent, or as a blend. Single note essential oils such as Eucalyptus or Lavender are commonly used as a stand alone scent. However, many times essential oils are used as blends of several different oils to achieve a desired effect(s).
Blends offered at Elements, named Vitality and Radiance, can relax or energize but also have more direct purposes such as relief from headache or respiratory ailments.
The classification of a vitality blend may produce the effects of being relaxing, calming, stress reducing and mentally clarifying. Our blend Vitality includes: Frankincense, Palmarosa, Lavender, Bergamot, Cypress, Geranium and Sage.
The breakdown of each desired effect of these essential oils are as follows:
Frankincense- antiseptic, astringent, digestive, expectorant and sedative.
Palmarosa- antiviral, bactericidal, digestive and hydrating.
Lavender- restlessness, insomnia, nervousness, depression, loss of appetite, joint pain and many other uses.
Bergamot- anti-anxiety, deodorant, sedative, analgesic and anti-depressant.
Cypress- respiratory tonic, sedative, antispasmodic, and astringent.
Geranium- balance hormones, stress, circulation, anti-inflammatory and reduce blood pressure.
Sage- stimulating, expectorant, digestive, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory.
As you can see, this blend of essential oils covers and even overlaps a nice range of maladies that the client might be experiencing. The stated effects are more complimentary than redundant in their appeal in this configuration. For massage therapists, a good deal of research must be done to properly administer Aromatherapy. Elements West Allis features specific licensed therapists who are also certified in Aromatherapy from outside organizations.
