What's That Smell? Lavender in Your Day Spa

Of all of the essential oils out there, there is one that stands out from the rest in regards to versatility: Lavender.

I know many of us automatically associate lavender with calming, relaxing, and aiding in sleep, but lavender is really a wonderful plant, which creates a truly amazing essential oil, that can be incorporated into so many treatments in your day spa.

As we have discussed before, scents and smells really round out any spa experience, and lavender is such a comforting, relaxing scent to so many people. If someone new to the industry asked me what the #1 essential oil they should have available, my response would unequivocally would be lavender. However, did you know that it does so much more than relaxes?

Lavender Properties:

  • Anti-Bacterial
  • Anti-Inflammatory
  • Wound-Healing
  • Rejuvenating aging skin
  • Analgesic
  • Regulating / Calming
  • Stress Reducing
  • And more!
Uses in Your Spa:
  • Incorporate lavender into your scalp massages to alleviate sinus pressure and headaches
  • Add a few drops of lavender essential oil to your massage lotion to aid clients with skin irritations
  • Lavender oil in massage lotion helps ease muscle and joint pain
  • Provide warm lavender towels to your clients in your relaxation room
  • Incorporate lavender oil into your facials to rejuvenate aging skin
If you are uncomfortable using essential oils and creating your own blends, opting to have a lavender scented massage oil or cream, pedicure lotion, paraffin, or face mask is a good place to start!
