Escape Winter With a Sensory Journey!

secret-garden-painting1One of the things I love most about my job is the luxury of working with beautiful plant based aromas.  The therapeutic effects from natural aromas are a great way to help clients recover from stress and return to a more calm and balanced state.  At Elan we begin each spa service with a an Aroma Sensory  Journey to allow our guest to choose an aroma they love. What better way to transport yourself to a beautiful escape on a cold winter day! The following is from the Aveda Professional website:

NATURE MAKES PERFECT SCENTS

“Aromas can create new memories or bring back a moment in time with startling clarity. Unlike other senses, smell travels directly to the brain’s limbic system, which is home to memory, emotion and imagination. At Aveda, we use 100% naturally derived aromas that we call Pure-Fume™. We pioneered the development and use of “functional aromas” that go beyond scent and offer substance. Developed by our resident clinical aromaologist and noted Ayurvedic experts, every aroma and blend has a therapeutic effect.”

“The sense of smell works in two ways—psychologically and physiologically. The psychological aroma connection to memory and emotion is very powerful and happens in an instant. Physiologically, essential oils work through topical application and the lungs. We integrate aroma throughout the guest experience in many different product forms. Since each guest has different aroma memories and preferences, we ask guests to take an Aroma Sensory Journey to help determine their aroma preferences and create a customized, memorable experience.”

You can continue the experience at home by using essential oils, scented candles and skin and body care products.  For maximum effect,  make  sure  the aromas you use are naturally derived from plants and flowers.
