Santa Monica, Calif. — ESSIO has announced the expansion of its Spa Partnership Program by adding several leading spa accounts from across the country, including Burke Williams Day Spas in California, The Mandarin Oriental in Miami and Mokara Spa at the Omni Houston Hotel. ESSIO’s unique aromatherapy system infuses the shower water with USDA-certified organic essential oils to create a relaxing and invigorating shower experience.

The Spa Partnership Program allows resorts and spas to incorporate ESSIO’s products in their treatment rooms and showers, as well as feature the products in their retail environments. Burke Williams will initially feature ESSIO in three of its marquee locations.

“We are excited to be able to offer our customers this unique and innovative line,” said Angelo Pacella, retail and creative director at Burke Williams Day Spas. “Aromatherapy has always been one of the most enjoyable aspects of the Burke Williams experience. With ESSIO, our customers can now enjoy the ancient tradition in a uniquely modern way.”

Aromatherapy is an age-old therapeutic practice that uses plant-based essential oils to boost and improve the mental and physical well being of individuals. Spas have used aromatherapy in treatments ranging from massage to baths since the ancient civilizations of Egypt, China and Greece.

“Spas continue to be the go-to place for individuals to relax and de-stress,” said ESSIO CEO and Co-founder Peter Friis. “We are thrilled to be partnering with these wonderful properties and look forward to incorporating ESSIO into their treatments and introducing their customers to our brand.”

ESSIO is currently sold in spas, boutiques and hotels across the country, as well as online at www.essioshower.com.
