  • Relief is finally available for consumers who have long been plagued with sensitive skin.  Beauty salons, barber shops and day spas are now providing services and products of a safer nature as a direct result of pure essential oils.
     
    Toxic chemicals are damaging, causing irritation and burns, and should not be applied to our bodies, especially to sensitive scalps.  Experience safer, healthier salon treatments by requesting the use of gentle shampoos and haircare products containing pure, natural essential oils. 
     
    Today’s natural shampoos should contain certified pure, therapeutic grade (CPTG) essential oils such as lime and orange, blended with safe, botanical extracts and only gentle cleansers.  Many clients are now comfortable in returning to their favorite salons without the fear of harmful ingredients damaging their skin or color-treated hair.
     
    When scheduling a facial or a massage, keep in mind that the newest facial cleansers and moisturizers, as well as bath soaps and scrubs, will need to contain pure essential oils as opposed to the harsher, outdated formulas.  How rewarding for the millions of consumers who have tried product after horrible product in search of a safer, natural solution.
     
    Great massage therapists certainly know their way around essential oils.  Peppermint, orange and lavender oils are often applied to help reduce stress, improve circulation and promote a healthier well-being.
     
    Applying melaleuca (tea tree oil) will help to improve the immune system, while a massage with frankincense and myrrh will be most soothing to problems areas with pain and inflammation.
     
    Make your appointments with less fear!  Insist on products, services and purchases containing pure, therapeutic grade essential oils.  Let’s get out of the stone age and into better health!
