At Ruah Organic, Aromatherapy is a complementary natural therapy using essential oils to enhance the treatment for our clients. It embraces the notion of life force, it is a universal and abundant therapy that revitalises the mind, body, and spirit.
I believe in the power of our senses and clients would agree that when visiting Ruah Organic, it is a 'journey of the senses'. When was the last time you stopped, focused on your breathing and experienced only touch, smell and sound.
I encourage clients to bring the journey home with them and to start practicing aromatherapy in their everyday lives.
Here are some of the ways you can use aromatherapy in your daily life:
Add 6-8 drops of essential oil to water in a diffuser. Breathe deeply and enjoy the benefits.
Add 5 drops of essential oil to hot water and agitate the surface, then immerse and enjoy.
Cover the plughole in your shower with a face cloth, dispense 5 drops onto the shower basin and shower as normal, breathing in the steam to be energised.
Add 2 drops of essential oil to a spray bottle of 100ml water. Shake and then mist your face and body with your eyes closed. Enjoy the sensation.
Add 3-6 drops of essential oil in 200ml of water. Soak a washcloth, then press it into the face.
Massage / Moisturiser
Body massage - we recommend 10 drops of essential oils per 20ml of massage oil. This will give you a 2.5% dilution, which is suitable for an all over body massage. Facial massage - Use 5 ml (that is a teaspoon) of massage oil and add 1 to 2 drops of essential oil. *halve dose for children and halve again for infants and when pregnant.
Personalised Oil Blend
You can create an intuitive blend by closing your eyes and smelling each oil to feel which your body responds to. It is best to choose just 3 oils. Add a drop of each and smell, then keep adding to get the combination you like. Write down the recipe. Put the cap on and shake to blend. To use: Pump a small amount into your palms and rub together to warm and spread the oil. Massage, using long soothing strokes, into freshly cleansed skin until absorbed.
If you are interested in creating a bespoke oil blend using the extensive range of oils at Ruah Skin Spa, please only ask during your next appointment. I am a qualified Aromatherapist and extremely passionate about Essential Oils and mostly PURITY.
I use 2 ranges of stunning oils.
doTERRA - 100% pure, CPTG & Food Grade Essential Oils
Synthesis Organic Essential Oils - 100% Cert. Organic & Energy Imbued.
Both are graded according to their purity, quality and composition.
In choosing to use only the purest unadulterated form of these essential oils in your treatments and products, it is ensured that the therapeutic constituents are there to benefit the body and mind on so many levels.
Diluted, synthetically created essential oils or the artificial fragrances used in a lot of commercial skin care simply do not have the benefits of pure essential oils, and can sometimes be harmful if used therapeutically.
Synthesis Organics and doTERRA source the highest grade of essential oils that can be obtained from organic fields all over the earth, according to their botanical species and natural chemical composition, which ultimately determines their effectiveness in any application.
