I have outlined some steps I have personally used and tested that use Essential Oils in spa treatments. They have always produced the WOW factor and bring clients back again and again.
- Use an Aromatherapy burner or diffuser in your treatment room
- Use an Aromatherapy mist during any of your treatments
- Use Aromatherapy massage oil in any of your treatments
STEP 2 – Use Sleep Time Aromatherapy Mist to set the stage for relaxation.
Have you noticed how some guests can’t stop talking as they come into your room? Maybe they are afraid of losing their control, with this mist you can gently let them know that they can relax and trust in your caring hands.
Before the treatment begins ask your client to close their eyes, breathe deeply and enjoy the mist. Point the nozzle upwards so that the product falls on their face as a gentle rainforest mist.
STEP 3 – While they are facing upwards either during a massage, body treatments or while they have a mask on, use an eye pillow. First wrap the pillow with a tissue and put one drop of Sleep Time Essential Oil on the side of the pillow that won’t touch the face. This calming scent will disconnect them and send them to nirvana.
STEP 4 – Use aromatherapy massage oils for all the spa treatments you offer:
- For foot treatments and pedicures: massage legs and feet with the blend of your choice
- During a facial massage your guest’s arms, décolletage and hands while they have on a mask.
- Whole body massage: mix essential oils with your favorite lotion or use the body oils mentioned below
Please remember that One Size Does Not Fit All – Don’t use just lavender, eucalyptus or peppermint. Be creative, and remember that your guests like to feel special and that you have listened to them and addressed their needs.STEP 5 – Help them use Essential Oils at home. Recommend them a couple of oils to start with, not only will they feel better but those who live and work with your guests will also notice the difference. Your word of mouth marketing is at work!
