YES! Essential oils not only add a relaxing element through their delicious scents, they are also fabulous anti-microbial agents which help protect both therapist and client. Furthermore, by learning about a few appropriate medicinal applications of essential oils, a session can also be tailored to each client based not only on a favored scent, but also on a specific need. We especially like applying the oils to the soles of the feet when a client feels a bit under the weather; and finishing with a bit of tingly peppermint down the spine after a good back session. We LOVE our oils!!
