A Journey into Bliss!
If you have not yet tried a warm oil treatment, you owe yourself–and your clients–this unique, blissful indulgence. Profoundly nurturing, this heavenly experience will transport you to an enchanted world for an hour. The rose fragrance delights your senses (even those who do not usually like it) while awakening your heart chakra. You are simply moved into a divine realm where you can only surrender.
To give my signature Rose Oil and Petal treatment, you’ll need a small hot plate, like those to keep your coffee cup warm, and a stainless steel pan (make sure to handle the pan carefully when it’s warm!). Pour a blend of sesame, jojoba, and sweet almond oils into the pan and heat until warm. Test the temperature on the inside part of your wrist before massaging. Add the following essential oils and mix well:
* 8 drops of Sandalwood
* 5 drops of Rose otto
* 3 drops of Jasmine
Create a sacred space by lighting a few candles. Throw fresh rose petals on the table first and have the person lay on the table face down. Placing your hands below the cradle, have your client deeply breathe the exquisite scent of the blend. Breathe deeply and regularly with the client. Start your massage routine, using mostly long and soothing strokes. Massage both front and back. Spread petals on the body after the massage.
A Special Tip from Francoise!
End your massage with a hot wet towel. Place a towel in a crock-pot of water set on low before beginning the massage. Add two drops of Rose essential oil. At the end of the massage, gently wrap the client’s face with this aromatic towel. Don’t forget to test the temperature of the towel before applying it!
