One single technician can put his or her entire clientele's health at risk by not practicing stringent sanitation and disinfection guidelines. In addition, salon technicians should be well versed in the types of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites they may encounter so they may identify infections. The transmission of these infections would be properly eliminated through sanitization and disinfection in the salon environment.

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. It is always important to remember that, while natural, essential oils and aromatherapy can affect one's health positively or negatively, depending on the respect and care that the aromatherapist has for the work that they do. 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.
