The Many Benefits of Essential Oils

If you’re looking for great gift ideas for friends and family this holiday season, you should think about essential oils! Gifts of clothing and appliances are nice, but one thing that’s sure to be on everyone’s wish list is relaxation. These days, and especially around the holidays, we are very busy and rarely have a moment to stop moving. What most people won’t do is treat themselves, and that’s where you come in! With essential oils, you can provide your loved ones with a natural way to relax, anywhere they are. 

These essential oils can be rubbed into the skin, inhaled, and some can even be consumed for outstanding health benefits. Aromatherapy, which we offer here at LaVida Massage of Staten Island, allows our clients to breathe in the soothing smells and relax while the oils work their magic.

Benefits include:

Regulating male & female hormones

Relieving menstrual cramps

Stimulation of the immune system

Improving blood flow

Decrease in congestion

Relief of tension headaches

Improved energy

Relaxation of muscles

Reduction of inflammation

Improved sleep

Digestive improvements

At LaVida Massage of Staten Island, we offer a variety of oils to choose from, and depending on your ailments or needs, we can recommend the perfect fit. Beyond buying our oils as the perfect gift, you can even send your friends or family members in for their own customized aromatherapy massage session. If more than one oil will help you, we can even use one of our customized blends that target a number of aches, illnesses, and more. 

Some of our most popular oils that can easily be used at home include:
Peppermint Oil - This oil is very popular and the source of many “minty” flavors in the foods we eat. It is an additive in many products from chewing gum to chocolates and ice cream. While it tastes delicious and smells pleasant, it’s also great for alleviating things like headaches and nausea.
Tangerine Oil - This is a real favorite. It’s bright, pungent, and soothing at the same time. The smell is so familiar and pure, usually putting us at ease. This oil is used for the alleviation of dizziness and for digestion.
