Used in the salon or spa, aromatherapy can help clients to relax, help lift moods, soothe sore muscles and feet, be used in shampoos, creams and massage oils, and much more. Aromatherapy can provide many health benefits when used correctly and responsibly.

Used in the wrong way, oils can have serious health consequences and, while rare, can even cause death. However, the use of aromatic plants and essential oils throughout history has shown the great importance aromas and our sense of smell have on our general well-being.
