Fra­granced ren­dezvous

Hair - - Beauty -

An­cient heal­ers used fra­grant oils to en­hance moods, ad­just emo­tions and up­lift the soul. Fra­grances en­joy di­rect ac­cess and ben­e­fi­cial ef­fect to the psy­che. Smell mem­o­ries are vivid and can last a life­time. The syn­the­sis of sooth­ing strokes and scented oils is so nar­cotic, even the most up­tight in­di­vid­u­als seems to suc­cumb. Scent­ing the air with essences of herbs and flow­ers brings an el­e­ment of na­ture into our ur­ban ex­is­tence be­sides the abil­ity to im­prove cir­cu­la­tion, quell anx­i­ety, soothe in­flam­ma­tions and ward off in­fec­tions. As an an­ti­dote to our mod­ern day stress, aro­mather­apy seems hard to beat. The re­lax­ant ef­fect is stronger if you use es­sen­tial oils with mas­sages; it car­ries a pam­per value which has more to do with aroma than with its ther­a­peu­tic qual­i­ties.
