Ensuring the Purity and Authenticity of Our Essential Oils

At Kiyora Spa, we take the quality of our essential oils seriously. We understand that the effectiveness of aromatherapy massage largely depends on the purity and authenticity of the oils used. That’s why we source our oils from reputable suppliers who adhere to strict standards of quality. Our essential oils are 100% pure and natural, free from any synthetic additives or contaminants.

We believe in transparency, and our guests can rest assured that what they are experiencing is the real deal. Our oils undergo rigorous testing to ensure their purity and authenticity. This commitment to quality is not just about providing the best aromatherapy experience; it’s also about your safety and well-being.

Importance of Having a Premium Base Oil

Our base oil is a balanced mixture of sweet almond oil, grape seed oil, carnation oil, and Vitamin E.

Having a premium base oil, is of utmost importance in aromatherapy massage. The ingredients in the base oils act as carriers for essential oils, ensuring their safe and effective application on the skin.

Sweet almond oil, rich in vitamin E, provides deep moisturization and is gentle even on sensitive skin. Grape seed oil, with its antioxidant properties, not only enhances the benefits of essential oils but also nourishes the skin. These high-quality base oils are key to diluting the potency of essential oils, preventing skin irritation, and allowing the therapist to work smoothly during the massage. At Kiyora Spa, the use of premium base oils is not negotiable.  There is no other way to provide our guests with the best possible aromatherapy massage experience.

Sweet Almond Oil: Sweet almond oil is rich in vitamin E, making it a natural oil that moisturizes and softens the skin. It’s also known for its mild and hypoallergenic properties, which make it suitable for sensitive skin

Grape Seed Oil: Grape seed oil is packed with antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties. It helps improve skin’s elasticity, reduce the signs of aging, and provides lightweight hydration without clogging pores.

Carnation Oil: Carnation oil, derived from the petals of carnation flowers, has a sweet and spicy scent. It’s often used in aromatherapy for its calming effects and is believed to help relieve stress and anxiety.

Vitamin E: Vitamin E is a potent antioxidant that protects the skin from damage caused by free radicals. It promotes skin healing, reduces inflammation, and supports overall skin health.

This ensures each massage at Kiyora that uses oil is not only relaxing, but also targets your well-being.

Health Benefits of Using High-Quality Aromatherapy Oils

Using premium oils in massage therapy can significantly enhance the overall experience and provide several health benefits. These premium oils, derived from natural sources, offer a range of advantages:

  1. Skin Nourishment: Premium oils are rich in nutrients and fatty acids that nourish and hydrate the skin. They can help maintain skin health, leaving it soft, supple, and radiant.
  2. Enhanced Relaxation: The use of high-quality oils in massages can deepen the sense of relaxation. Their pleasant aroma and silky texture add to the overall soothing experience.
  3. Improved Skin Texture: Regular use of premium oils can improve skin texture and tone over time. They may reduce the appearance of scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
  4. Stress Reduction: Aromatherapy oils, often considered premium, can have stress-reducing effects. Inhaling the aromatic compounds can trigger relaxation responses in the brain, reducing stress and anxiety.
  5. Pain Relief: Some premium oils, such as arnica oil, are known for their pain-relieving properties. Massaging these oils into sore or achy muscles can provide relief.
  6. Better Circulation: The massaging action itself, when combined with premium oils, can improve blood circulation. Enhanced circulation delivers oxygen and nutrients to tissues while aiding in the removal of waste products.
  7. Mood Enhancement: Premium oils with pleasing scents, like lavender or chamomile, can positively affect mood. They may help alleviate symptoms of depression and promote a sense of well-being.
  8. Reduced Inflammation: Certain oils, such as chamomile or frankincense, possess anti-inflammatory properties. Their application can reduce localized inflammation and swelling.

Why You Should Avoid Using Low-Quality Aromatherapy Oils

Using low-quality massage oils can have several disadvantages, which may impact the overall massage experience and its effectiveness:

  1. Minimal or No Essential oils: These oils may be formulated with minimal or no essential oils, which can significantly affect the quality and therapeutic benefits of the massage.
  2. Skin Irritation: Low-quality oils often contain synthetic or impure ingredients that can irritate the skin. This can lead to redness, itching, or rashes, making the massage uncomfortable.
  3. Unpleasant Odor: Inferior oils may have an unpleasant or synthetic odor that can detract from the relaxation and enjoyment of the massage. Unpleasant scents can also affect the mood negatively.
  4. Poor Lubrication: Low-quality oils may lack the smooth, gliding texture necessary for a comfortable massage. This can result in friction between the therapist’s hands and the client’s skin, potentially causing discomfort or soreness.
  5. Sticky Residue: Some lower-grade oils can leave a sticky residue on the skin after the massage. This residue can be challenging to wash off and may require additional cleansing.
  6. Short Shelf Life: Low-quality oils often have a shorter shelf life due to their inferior ingredients. This means they may become rancid or spoiled more quickly, rendering them unusable.
  7. Lack of Therapeutic Benefits: Lower-grade oils may lack the therapeutic properties that high-quality, natural oils possess. This can result in missed opportunities to address specific concerns such as muscle tension, stress, or skin conditions.
  8. Ineffective Aromatherapy: If aromatherapy is a part of the massage experience, low-quality oils may not release a pleasant or beneficial aroma. This can limit the potential mood-enhancing and relaxation effects.
  9. Allergic Reactions: Some individuals may be more sensitive to low-quality oils, leading to allergic reactions. Symptoms can range from mild skin irritation to more severe allergic responses.
  10. Limited Slip and Glide: Low-quality oils may not provide the necessary slip and glide for the massage therapist’s movements. This can hinder their ability to perform techniques effectively.
  11. Reduced Overall Experience: Ultimately, the use of subpar oils can diminish the overall massage experience. Clients may not fully enjoy or benefit from the treatment, leading to dissatisfaction.

To ensure a positive massage experience and maximize the therapeutic benefits, it’s advisable to choose high-quality massage oils that are free from synthetic additives and fragrances. These oils are more likely to provide the desired effects, enhance relaxation, and promote overall well-being. If you’re not sure on what to look out for, book your oil massage session at Kiyora Spa to guarantee that you won’t be using any low-quality oils.
