Aromatherapy, the gift of mother nature
Scents bring back memories, evoke pleasant moments, convey sensations, emotions, surround us in their magic and transport us to a world of well-being. Since ancient civilizations, both eastern and western, the use of aromatherapy was widely used, in environments to create pleasant atmospheres, in aromatic baths, in massages, and even as medicine or to embalm bodies. Aromatherapy is based on the use of essential oils from different plants, herbs and flowers, whose aromas help to increase physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. Once the aromas of the different plants are inhaled, the olfactory receptors are in charge of sending the information to an area of the brain called the “Limbic System”.
This is a system made up of different parts responsible for the physiological and emotional responses of our body / mind. Thus, different aromas stimulate the release of different chemicals in the brain, actively participating in the release of different emotions and moods. For all this, at Ambrosía spa we are super fans of aromatherapy. In each of our spa treatments, be they massages or beauty rituals, we always include the use of essential oils, used according to aromatic properties.
Our aromatherapy basics are 3:
