Aromatherapy can be practised in various ways, including through our olfactory senses and direct application to the skin.
The essential oils, on application to the skin, can have a variety of effects. Some are calming, others stimulating. Others are employed to alleviate muscular pains and discomforts.
In massages, essential oil can be used in two ways; by applying the essential oil on a concrete point and waiting for the skin to absorb it.
We can also dissolve essential oils in a vegetable oil that we use as a lubricant in massages. The product is distributed by the friction of the massage, producing a sense of warmth in the area being treated. By these means the essential oils better penetrate the skin, maximizing the effect of the massage and the intrinsic properties of the essential oils being used.
The Living Stone employs essential oils specially indicated for application in corporal massages which will transport you to a state of incomparable relaxation and well-being.
The vegetable oils that are principally used in massages are sweet almond oil, sesame oil, hazelnut oil, “hipérico”, arnica oil, etc…
