Essential oils have been treasured for their fragrances and their therapeutic effects for thousands of years. An essential oil is a highly concentrated, chemically complex substance, which is derived from the flowers, leaves, woods, fruits, seeds or roots of plants.
Essential oils enter the body by inhalation alone or by inhalation together with absorption through the skin. The essential oil molecules enter the bloodstream through capillaries in either the skin or the lungs. The inhalation of essential oils initiates an emotional response, stimulating the part of the brain that deals with memory and emotions. Essential oils can be used to lift the spirits, establish a positive relaxed frame of mind, calm the nerves, or energize.
Essential oils are incorporated into the Aveda products we use for all of our salon and spa services. Relax and enjoy the aromas surrounding you at Salon Agape'.
