Aromatherapy Skin Care Sessions

Therepe Scented Bath Salts - Raspberry PatchouliTherepe Scented Bath Salts - Raspberry Patchouli

Aromatherapy skin care products can greatly enhance your life and allow you to relax at home while pampering yourself.

The following treatments are all easy to do in the comfort of your home and are based on easy aromatherapy recipes.

Body Scrub
Facial Steam
Hair and Scalp Massage

Body Scrub

This entire body aromatherapy skin care treatment serves three important purposes: it exfoliates the skin (removes dead cells), improves blood circulation and increases the skin's absorbency so that moisturizers can better hydrate and moisturize your skin.

You will need a natural bristle brush, a large towel (keep in mind that it will get pretty dirty so you may want to use an old towel), a bowl, 1/2 cup of finely ground oats, 1/2 cup of ground almonds, 1 teaspoon of dried, finely ground orange peel, 1 teaspoon of rosehip granules, 5 drops of jasmine essential oil, body lotion and warm water.

Sleep and Insomnia
  • 3. Stand over the towel and cover your body with the mixture. Use pressure and small circular movements to ensure that the small particles in the scrub mixture disloge dead skin cells. The mixture will dry off quickly.
  • 4. Most of the mixture should fall off on its own. Use the soft brush to remove any leftover on your skin. It's important to use short brisk movements in the direction of the heart to activate blood circulation.
  • 5. Apply your favorite body lotion if you want once this aromatherapy skin care treatment is over.

Facial Steam

Here's another aromatherapy skin care session you can do in the comfort of your home. It will help open up and cleanse your pores as well as remove toxins and dead cells. It's a good idea to enjoy a facial steam once a week, especially for those who have oily skin.

You will need a large bowl of boiling water, a large towel, 5 to 10 drops of essential oil appropriate to your skin type, a face cloth, a kitchen timer and a light moisturizer. If you are looking for an online aromatherapy supplier, read this page.

Note: You shouldn't attempt this aromatherapy skin care treatment if there are spider veins or broken veins on your face, if you have a sunburn and/or any other condition that makes your skin sensitive.

Hair and Scalp Massage

Who doesn't want to promote hair growth while relaxing and getting rid of headaches? A hair and scalp massage can do just that with the added benefit that it will reduce scaling.

Make sure you have 2 to 3 hours to devote to this aromatherapy skin care session before you get started. You will need to select a carrier oil and an essential oil. The following table should be useful.
