How to Implement Aromatherapy in Your Spa

Use oil burners- Small amounts of fragrant oil are warmed in a shallow dish. Burners can be warned by an open flame or you can use an electrical burner. As the oil burns, it releases the fragrance into the air.

Burn candles – Much like the oil burners, the fragrance in candles is released as the wax is burned away. But with candles the fragrance is much milder and is a softer and slower building fragrance.

Light incense sticks- For a strong and quick flourish of soothing and healing fragrance you can add some incense sticks in the room. It will give a powerful punch and is ideal for quick spa sessions.

Bath and shower oils- There is no better way to enjoy a steam shower or a soak in the tub than to add fragrance oils into the mix. Soothe and relax anyone and help them recover from the days behind them.

Aromatherapy shower – Just like how aromatherapy is implemented in your spa front desk, you can even add a dose of aromatherapy in your shower with the Aroma Sense shower head that contains an aromatherapy shower cartridge with a variety of scents available.

Aromatherapy has some wonderful applications in the spa industry and can help you bring in even greater profits. When your customers enjoy your spa and are happy and well treated, they will be more likely to become loyal long-term customers. And that is what is best for your business!
