Having recenlty received my September issue of American Spa, I was delighted to read their wonderful article, “Scents of Place.” This feature highlighted how special our sense of smell is and its unique ability to trigger strong emotional responses. Ever wonder why a smell can immediately transport you back to a certain time or place? This is because our sense of smell is directly linked to the part of our brain that processes memories.
With aromatherapy being an integral component of a spa’s ambiance, it makes sense to incorporate this element into as many treatments as possible. We designed the PerfectSense Paraffin foot/hand treatments to have the added benefit of aromatherapy while the paraffin is melting. Spas have the option of Lavender, Invigorate (a blend of eucalyptus, spearmint, peppermint and mandarin orange,) or Neutral. If your spa has a signature scent, try the Neutral AromaVapor Solution! The Neutral is unscented and you can add a few drops of your custom fragrance directly in the pouch before activation.
If performing a Lava Shell massage, further enhance your client’s experience by putting a drop or two of your custom, or seasonal, fragrance into the shell during the activation process.
