3 Ways To Combine Essential Oils With Professional Services
When massage therapists mix combinations of essential oils into their massage oils, aromatherapy combines with the healing power of massage to promote health benefits for you, the client. Communicate your goals for the massage and the massage therapist can make a blend according to the intention you set.
The following are some examples.
To help you feel more grounded when needing to make a tough decision, blends that include the following are great choices: hemp seed oil, spikenard, ginger, and ghandi root. When emotional strain manifests itself as physical pain, you need pain relief. Your massage therapist might mix vanilla, orange, and lavender into non-fragrant, hypoallergenic Jojoba oil.
After you have cleared it with your practitioner first (in case she has any sensitivities to particular scents), add drops of a particular essential oil into a diffuser before your professional cuddler arrives for your cuddle therapy appointment. Or perhaps your cuddle therapist will prepare a blend before your arrive at her office.
Frankincense is a dynamic essential oil for meditative experiences. When mixed with Palo Santo and balsam copaiba, this blend just might become your favorite!
Similarly, turning on your diffuser during a virtual connection session, communicates self love and the willingness to create a healing space during your online professional cuddling session. Incense is another option.
Prior to a virtual connection session take the opportunity to create a welcoming space for yourself with you as your own guest in this self care appointment. Add ylang ylang to frankincense in the right proportions, and make your session space truly inviting.
