Aromatherapy for the Mind and Body: Part 2

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Now that you’ve unlocked the healing benefits of aromatherapy and steam, it’s time for an indulgent upgrade. While Thermasol’s Essential Oils offer a wide range of therapeutic and aromatic benefits, their line of Precious Reserve Oils take aromatherapy to the next level. Like fine wines, these high grade oils are distilled in small batches and sold in very small amounts, making them more expensive to produce but more potent and concentrated. Sourced directly from rural distilleries worldwide, these reserve oils are organically certified and free of pesticides and other contaminants.

To get the rejuvenating effects of Precious Reserve Oils, you only need to add 2 to 4 drops to the steamhead reservoir before your steam session. Or you can add them directly to your bathwater for soothing and sensuous aromas.

Which oil is right for you? Check out the list below for the different properties they offer.

Chromatherapy and the Art of Healing Colors

Monday, October 8th, 2012

How are you feeling today? Tickled pink, a little blue, or perhaps green with envy? When moods are so tied to color, it’s no wonder chromatherapy, or color therapy, has become so popular in the home spa environment. In a previous post we discussed the benefits of aromatherapy in the steam shower. Today we’ll explore the effect of color healing on the body and how it can be combined with aromatherapy and steam for maximum relaxation.

Derived from the theories of Indian Ayurvedic healers, chromatherapy is based on the body’s seven chakras. When these “energy centers” become unaligned, color and light are used to restore the balance where it’s lacking— whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. Each chakra is tied to a location in the body and possesses a corresponding color and physical/emotional association:

Violet/Top of Head: Meditative. Soothes organs, relaxes muscles and calms the nervous system.

Indigo/Forehead: Perception. Promotes intuition.

Blue/Throat: Tranquility. Relieves headaches, migraines, stomach pains and muscle cramps.

Green/Heart: Harmony. Promotes relaxation and detoxification.

Yellow/ Stomach: Freedom. Assists the metabolism, strengthens the nervous system and combats glandular disease.

Orange/Pelvis: Alertness. Helps depression, discontent and pessimism.

Red/Lower Body: Courage. Increases blood pressure and circulation.

Chromatherapy is heightened when paired with aromatherapy and the power of steam. For relaxation, it’s recommended to combine violet chromatherapy with the soothing scents of lavender and jasmine. For a more stimulating effect, the aroma of rosemary and red chromatherapy are recommended. For general strength and wellness, blue chromatherapy mixed with the scents of bergamot, rose, or tea tree oil is ideal, depending on your symptoms. And for mental wellness, indigo chromatherapy and jasmine, lavender or rose are recommended.

In need of a steam shower upgrade? ThermaSol offers the Serenity Light and Music System, which produces full spectrum, high-intensity light and sound. Just add a few drops of aromatherapy essential oil into the steamhead reservoir before your steam session and you are ready to relax.

Let chromatherapy color your world.

Aromatherapy for the Mind and Body

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012

Take a deep breath. Now say “Ahh….” When stress takes a toll, it’s important to stop and smell the roses. But when it comes to aromatherapy fragrances, why stop at roses?

Aromatherapy offers a natural and therapeutic way toward self-healing through essential oils. While most commonly inhaled using diffusers, a refreshing new trend combines the oils with steam to promote even deeper relaxation. ThermaSol, a company best known for their home steam showers, takes this trend a step further by offering a line of certified organic Essential and Precious Reserve Oils. Just add two to four drops to the steamhead reservoir during a steam session and breathe easy. The steambath increases circulation and brings toxins to the surface, cleaning the pores with perspiration and the aromatherapy-infused steam. Together this combination hydrates dull skin and refreshes the body and mind.

From relaxing to energizing, ThermaSol offers a variety of Essential Oils, but which scent is right for you? Here’s a full list and the different properties they offer.
