Essential oils in massage

Essential oils amplify the benefits of massage thanks to the purest properties of their components


Essential oils are natural compounds of vegetable origin obtained by distillation or by pressing from material with aromas, of which they retain characteristics such as taste and smell.

Essential oils, suitable only for external use, can be used with diffusers or humidifiers, or as perfumed oils for the body, as insect repellents, or as home care products, for example to deodorize the bathroom or as additive for household cleaners. They are also used in aromatherapy, a branch of phytotherapy that uses essential oils for their healing properties and maintenance of well-being.

Since ancient times, man has been able to distinguish between plants which were poisonous for him and which are important allies for his health. Using and smelling them, perceiving their aromas even when burned on the fire, man has developed a close relationship with them and has made them fundamental parts of his daily life, integrating them into food, drinks, his environments, his health practices. and even in its magic and religious rites, thus sanctioning a very close relationship destined to last until today.

Uso degli olii essenziali nel Massaggio


Used wisely and carefully and diluted in a particularly suitable carrier oil, essential oils penetrate our tissues through the skin.

They are nutrients that then arrive in cell membranes and fight viruses and bacteria, as well as having specific properties based on their essence.

They also have the very strong power to stimulate the Amygdala, which is located in our brain and is the HEART OF EMOTIONS: it is in fact connected to the olfactory system and acts unconsciously, bringing benefit and storing memories.
