What is an Aromatherapy Massage?
Aromatherapy massage combines the benefits of traditional massage with the holistic benefits of scented essential oils, or concentrated oils that are derived from various plants. So an aromatherapy massage helps your body and your mind.
Common essential oils include lavender, tea tree, chamomile, bergamot, geranium, lemon, ginger, and cedarwood. These fragrant oils are potent, so they’re diluted in a neutral carrier oil such as the grapeseed oil we use before they’re applied to your skin.
During the massage, the aroma of the essential oil travels to the part of your brain known as the limbic system. This versatile set of structures serves many purposes, including regulating emotion. And voila. Pleasant fragrances trigger dopamine and serotonin resulting in, you guessed it, pleasant emotions.BOOK NOW

Beneficial oil for the Aromatherapy Massage
Each essential oil is said to have its own specific benefits. Some scents will help you chill out, like jasmine or lavender oil. Others will give you a bit of an invigorating zing, like eucalyptus or lemon. Please inform our massage therapist what you hope to get out of the massage and we’ll help you choose a scent based on your goals.
Whatever your individual goal, our massage therapist will guide you to an appropriate essential oil.
Here are some of the essential oils we might use:
- Lavender oil has a calming effect that might improve sleep and improve symptoms of depression and anxiety
- Peppermint oil is thought to manage pain from headaches. Bergamot helps to regulate blood pressure.
- Chamomile eucalyptus, and rosemary are said to reduce inflammation.
Aromatherapy Massage Safety
Although many people enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy massage, some oils can cause skin irritation or an allergic reaction in some people. Please inform Secret Oasis and the therapist if you have any allergic reaction before any massages.
If you haven’t informed us and you notice any signs of irritation during your aromatherapy massage, please ask us to stop the massage straight away and wash your skin. If you are suffering from any medical conditions, or if you are pregnant, it’s advised to contact your medical provider before beginning aromatherapy massage to make sure aromatherapy is safe for you.
