Peppermint Oil

This is one of the most popular essential oils. It offers muscle-relaxing and antispasmodic properties to help relieve pain and revive your senses. It’s calming yet stimulating and is ideally used for cramps, pains, headaches, and to relieve knotted muscles.

Lavender Oil

The lavender essential oil has been around for centuries and is popular in love and healing potions. But its spiritual nature is all about peace, happiness, purification, and restoration. Not only does lavender essential oil help to alleviate feelings of loneliness and isolation or depression, but it works to balance out emotions. Lavender is uplifting, encouraging great relaxation and deeper sleep to leave you feeling refreshed and your soul sufficiently soothed.

Rose Oil

Rose oil is often associated with words like forgiveness, grace, and love. It calms the heart and in Chinese medicine, is said to assist the liver and kidneys. Most importantly, it stabilizes the heart and calms the spirit. It encourages a deep commitment to your soul. It’s not an everyday oil, but rather one to enjoy during special pampering sessions when your body, mind, and spirit need a little uplifting and spoiling.

Sweet Orange Oil

The sweet orange essential oil comes from the rind of oranges and is used mostly as a flavoring agent. But it offers so much more. Orange oil is antispasmodic, helps with digestion, is calming, is an antiseptic, and can help alleviate depression. This oil offers a warm and comforting effect that soaks away stresses and tension. It helps with insomnia and anxiety, too, and when used in a manicure or pedicure, orange oil can help nourish dry skin and soften dermatitis and fine lines.

Tea Tree Oil

You’re probably no stranger to tea tree essential oil. It’s a popular choice, medicinally and in a strengthening sense. It’s also been used for thousands of years by Australian Aborigines who inhale it from crushed up leaves to help cure colds and coughs. Tea Tree oil is soothing for burns and cuts, and spiritually, it can bring your soul faith and courage when times are tough.

Sandalwood Essential Oil

Sandalwood oil is associated with the root and crown chakras. It helps with grounding and watchfulness and is the perfect essential oil to use when you’re feeling a little out of sorts. That’s because Sandalwood oil helps with anxiety, panic, insomnia, and even restlessness of the mind and soul. It’s an oil that’s known to encourage a strong sense of independence and self. It works as an antispasmodic, anti-inflammatory, anti-depressant, and even an antiseptic while working to lower cholesterol, reduce blood pressure, and enhance your memory capabilities for a calm, aware, and relaxed soul.

Choosing a spa treatment that incorporates the healing and soothing properties of essential oils will leave you refreshed, clear-headed, and ready to face the days ahead.
