Essential oils have become a very popular alternative health treatment and an age-old remedy for helping one feel better. Glacial Waters Spa has picked up on the rising essential oils and aromatherapy trend by introducing a new service featuring doTERRA, a world leader in sourcing, testing, manufacturing, and distribution of CPTG essential oils.
Glacial Waters Spa is currently working on changing up the spa service menu and unveiling it in the Spring of 2018. Here is a sneak peek at one of the new, soon-to-be favorites… AromaTouch Massage. The AromaTouch Technique is a simple yet powerful way to provide every individual with an essential oil experience.
Each essential oil in the AromaTouch Technique was selected for its individual aromatic properties, and for their powerful aromatic qualities when combined.
The essential oils included in AromaTouch Massage include:
- Balance Grounding Blend
The Balance Grounding Blend is a combination of Spruce Needle/Leaf, Frankincense Resin, Blue Tansy Flower, and Blue Chamomile Flower essential oils. It is used to evoke feelings of balance, relaxation, and has shown to promote a positive mood and soothe feelings. The Frankincense oil is the star in this blend helping to reduce skin imperfections and sooth those with stressed or hectic feelings.
Lavender oil is one of the most calming oils to use. It is gentle on the most delicate skin-types and can even be used on toddlers and infants. The doTerra Lavender Touch can be applied to the temples, back of the neck, bottoms of the feet, or pulse points to experience its calming, grounding effects.
