Aveda Essential Oils

“Aromatherapy” is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being.     In Aromatherapy Massage, these oils are added to the body butter used to enhance the overall massage experience.  We call these natural oils, “Essential Oils.”

It is also widely believed that the inhaled aroma from these “essential” oils stimulates brain function. Essential oils are absorbed through the skin, where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing. One example of this is Lavender, which is well known for promoting a sense of relaxation.

Some ideas for using relaxing Lavender oil in your home:

-Add to bath water for soft, smooth, aromatic soaking.

-Dab some on a tissue and place between pillow and pillow case for calm and restful sleep throughout the night.

-Wipe lightly over light bulbs so when the lights are on, the aroma emanates through the room.

Hair for Salon Emage Day Spa by Ashley Gray

Always wanted to have a feather in your cap? Well now you can  (minus the cap). Feathered hair extensions are hot for summer and this trend’s strength may last through fall.


These feathers are genuine, and they attach directly to the hair which makes them washable and easy to wear. Most extensions will stay in for approximately a month.


“What makes these different from other extensions is that when it falls out, it can be re-adhered to the hair.” – said

extension expert, Ashley Gray of Salon Emage Day Spa


Being able to re-attach the feather makes the investment of up to $30 per strand a little more palatable. Salon Emage Day Spa prices start at $15 for a single fine feature (pictured); they offer two sizes and a variety of colors. Many salons offer a discount for doing multiple strands, so make sure to ask.


With demand on the rise, this is a trend you don’t want to wait to try. Feather

supplies are diminishing, feather prices are rising and fly fishermen are wondering what the heck happened!?
