- Would you like more information on how to offer aromatherapy skin care products, treatments or essential oils easily?
If you answered yes, then you’re in the right place!
Adding Aromatherapy Skin Care to Your Business
Incorporating aromatherapy hair, face and skin care into your business can be a simple, pain-free experience. It can provide many additional beauty benefits to your customers and at a cost-effective rate for your company. If you would like more information on how to make Aromatherapy Oil Massages a part of your services, check out our previous post.
While aromatherapy massage and aromatherapy skin care are different and require some different products, you can still use many of the same products in both treatments. So if you have a massage therapist on your team, and you’re considering adding aromatherapy skin care treatments to your spa, salon, clinic or practice, aromatherapy massages might be a great upsell item for your customer that will require little additional overhead, investment or inventory.
The only investments required to add aromatherapy skincare to your list of items, services or treatments your company offers is a little time and some inventory. While aromatherapy massage can be done quite well and have noticeable results for the body, face and skin with just a carrier oil and some essential oils, to properly approach aromatherapy skin care, you might need a few more items. Luckily, if you know where to look, many of these items can be found at affordable prices while still being made from 100% all-natural ingredients.
The time investment is just to learn more about the products and essential oils involved.
And we are happy to help with both! Keep reading to learn our top 11 spa aromatherapy essential oils and after, be sure to check out our all-natural Aromatherapy Skin Care Items!
Using Aromatherapy for Skin
Maybe you already have skin care treatments or skin care products you use, or you may be new to the aromatherapy field and eager to learn more about the benefits of essential oils. Either way, there are plenty of reasons to trust aromatherapy and essential oils when it comes to your skin care treatments.
As we mentioned in our previous article on Aromatherapy Massage Oil Benefits, the practice of aromatherapy has been used for hundreds and hundreds of years by a variety of ancient civilizations. Since the process to make essential oils is done through steam distillation, the technology to harvest the therapeutic and medicinal powers of nature through essential oils has been available for over a thousand years. Ancient civilizations used aromatherapy and essential oils for myriad benefits and to treat a variety of ailments.
When it comes to aromatherapy for skin use, it is important to have spent that time studying the essential oils you’re using. Many essential oils are gentle and good for application to the hair, face, skin, scalp and lips, while other essential oils might be less gentle. When it comes to the less gentle aromatherapy oils for skin, you or one of your associates can dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil like coconut or jojoba. Then you’re all set! Extra virgin coconut oil is our favorite carrier oil when using aromatherapy for skin care.
Top 3 Reasons to Consider Using Aromatherapy Oils for Skin
If you operate a spa, beauty salon, massage practice or physical rehabilitation center, there are many reasons to use aromatherapy oils for skin, hair, face and more. But we wanted to narrow it down to three simple points:
- Essential oils and aromatherapy are very versatile and can be used to treat a wide range of conditions.
- Essential oils and aromatherapy can also be used in a variety of ways.
- Essential oils and aromatherapy are natural, proven cost-effective alternatives to chemical-based treatments.
1. Aromatherapy Skincare Sessions can Treat Many Conditions
Depending on which essential oils you use, you can offer aromatherapy skincare sessions for a multitude of different issues and conditions. Many essential oils are great for treating aches and pains, some provide relaxation or stress relief, while others can provide an energy boost and even increase physical performance. When it comes to aromatherapy skin care, there are a good amount of essential oils that are great for the skin. Some replenish the skin with vitamins and antioxidants, some stimulate circulation and some can even help fight wrinkles. So depending on the needs of your customers, you or your associates can offer aromatherapy skincare sessions that allow the customers to customize the essential oils used. This customization can prove to be a great upsell that requires practically no additional cost to the business!
2. Aromatherapy and Essential Oils can be Used in Many Different Ways
The next great thing about essential oils is that you can use them in so many different ways. In our post on Using Essential Oils Without a Diffuser, we cover 10 different ways to use essential oils without a diffuser, but there are still even more than that!
When it comes to your spa, beauty salon, massage practice or physical rehabilitation center, this means that if you incorporate aromatherapy into your business, you can seamlessly transition from offering one service (for example a lavender essential oil skin care treatment), to offering multiple (for instance adding lavender essential oil massage therapy and lavender essential oil facials) services, without much additional investment.
3. Aromatherapy Skin Care Products are Natural, Proven AND Cost-Effective
Every essential oil can be used in different ways to receive different benefits. This multi-purpose nature can also prove to be helpful in a cost-effective way by not requiring a large initial overhead to still offer a wide range of benefits.
For a quick example of the multi-purpose aspect of essential oils, in our post on Peppermint Essential Oil for Spa Aromatherapy, we discussed some of the benefits of Peppermint Essential Oil for spa use. Peppermint essential oil can be used to boost energy, clear the sinuses, increase physical performance, fight allergies and colds, treat nausea and headaches, and treat sunburns and minor skin conditions.
Also, aromatherapy skin care products are a natural, chemical-free solution! As we say here at Utama Spice, “If you wouldn’t cook with it, you shouldn’t put it on your body.”
Another favorite essential oil of ours for skin care use is Lavender Essential Oil. We have posts on How to Use Lavender Essential Oil for Skin and How to Use Lavender Essential Oil for Hair & Scalp.
