Meet Your Therapist: Lola, beauty therapist at Chamomile Sanctuary

Areas of expertise- Aromatherapy

What are your favourite parts of your job? I love providing aromatherapy massage. I adore finding out what clients aims are and making them happen. Also, I enjoy the calm of setting up for each unique treatment with the candles, music and oils.
What’s your favourite product? Aromatherapy Associates Support Lavender & Peppermint Bath & Shower Gel. Its key ingredients are eucalyptus, peppermint, pine, tea-tree and lavender  so the smell is amazingly fresh and clean. It’s great for treating colds and flu as well as sinusitis. This product is designed to improve respiratory ailments as well as seasonal allergies. Clients love its smell, its quick effect at decongesting respiratory passages and that it helps to ease muscle pain and headaches.
How does aromatherapy work? Aromatherapy is an old practice that uses your olfactory sense. The tiny molecules are taken in through your nose and skin to stimulate part of your brain which is connected to memory and mood. So aromatherapy treats the mind, body and spirit.
What would be your treatment of the week if you were able to enjoy one right now? A lovely massage.
Oh and what is your best beauty tip you’ve learned at the spa that you’d love to pass on to your clients? Use a body brush every two to three days. Its amazing at detoxing the body – it improves cellulite, creates smooth, plump and bright skin and is a real beauty treat. Also, dry brushing every day, always towards the heart, has wonderful health benefits – smoother skin, better circulation, improved immunity/detox, better muscle tone and improves cellulite also.
