There is nothing like the relaxing wave of aromas you get when you walk into a spa. Essential oils are the perfect greeting for a peaceful and refreshing spa experience.
But your olfactory senses do much more than provide access to pleasurable scents. There’s a reason when you smell essential oils, you feel a physical shift in your perception. The receptors in your nose provide a direct path to the region of your brain that controls your emotions and memories.
Therefore, it’s important to us at Balance Spa to make sure that you feel calm the second you walk through our door. That’s why we’ve put together a culmination of some of the best spa essential oils to welcome you every time you visit us. If you’ve ever wondered what that lightly floral with a tangy citrus aroma is when you come to our spa, it’s our natural aromatherapy blend of lavender, rosemary, and lemon spa essential oils.
Aside from just smelling great, here are the benefits of each 100% pure oil that we use in our spa:
Lavender oil has a refreshing, floral scent, that when inhaled helps reduce blood pressure, stress, and anxiety, therefore increasing your mood by promoting peace and tranquility.
Aside from its soothing therapeutic effect when diffused, the essential oil can also be used in spa facials to help treat acne, eczema, and skin inflammation, or in massage treatments as a pain reliever. Or you can purchase your own lavender oil to use at home for improving sleep, relieving symptoms associated with asthma, repelling insects, making your home smell fresh and clean, and for other purposes such as lavender oil’s antifungal properties and potential to improve hair growth.
Like lavender oil, rosemary oil can be used in a variety of ways. Research shows that rosemary oil can help increase your memory. Inhaling the evergreen scent of rosemary oil can also relieve stress, improve concentration, combat fatigue, boost the immune system, and clear congestion.
You may also add rosemary oil to any of your massage treatments to induce relaxation and alleviate sore and inflamed muscles. Some of our skin care products contain rosemary oil to help with acne, inflammation, and dry and oily skin. Rosemary oil can also be used at home to improve hair growth, relieve headaches, soothe digestion, or use in DIY cleaning supplies.
While lavender oil is useful for reducing blood pressure, rosemary oil is not recommended for those with high blood pressure or epilepsy.

Similarly to rosemary oil, invigorating lemon oil is helpful for concentration. Studies have even shown the scent of lemon to be helpful in office settings.
Lemon oil also contains many vitamins that are healthy for the skin, while detoxifying and helping remove excess oil from the skin. At home, lemon oil is another great hair strengthener, and the essential oil also provides immune support and relief from indigestion and heartburn.
