Many of you already know that I make my own massage cream. I choose to do this so that I can guarantee a natural product with a texture I prefer as a therapist and has a beneficial effect for my clients. I am not an aromatherapist though, so it is very important for me to make sure that I get reliable information from a certified aromatherapist when choosing my pain relief essential oil blend and concentration to include in my massage cream.
Aromatherapy and essential oil use have become quite popular lately, and believe it or not, there are some safety concerns to keep in mind. Even though essential oils are natural, they are highly concentrated and can cause harm if used incorrectly. Here are some quick tips from Andrea Butje at Aromahead Institute, and a link to a free introductory class if you are interested in learning more. She also offers classes in natural living, and certification classes if you are interested in becoming a certified aromatherapist.
Health Savings Account (HSA) and Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards are now being accepted as forms of payment for services.
Starting this week, I will also be listed on SpaWish, SpaFinder, and SpaWeek gift cards as well. These gift cards can often be purchased with rewards points on credit cards, or are offered in grocery store gift card selections. If you receive one of these gift cards, I will gladly accept them as a form of payment equal to the value on the gift card. These cannot be partially redeemed, so any amount above the cost of service will be issued to you as credit on your account or a Mother Oak Massage gift certificate you may give to someone else.
