Marc Massing explains the benefits of aromatherapy in a spa’s wet areas Essential oils transform ordinary saunas and steam rooms, creating a unique olfactory experience How can Camylle help spas revitalise their wet areas? The wet area in a spa – including saunas, steam rooms, hydrotherapy baths and more – often represents a spa’s largest investment, yet these areas are often underutilised or even neglected in the day-today operations. Often, saunas and steam rooms are simply turned on in the morning and then turned off in the evening. But with the help of aromatherapy, these spaces can become a major draw for clients. The steam room or sauna is transformed into a wellness treatment in its own right, and becomes a central component of your wellness space, helping to boost the number of visitors to the spa.

How does aromatherapy work in the wet area? In a sauna, when essential oils are poured over the scorching lava stones, the entire body is able to absorb the benefits deep into the skin.

Set the spraying schedule, ideally every 30 minutes, or place the bucket inside the sauna. In a steam room, the humid atmosphere means the essential oils can be absorbed through the skin. Simply arrange to change the canister under the fragrance pump according to the established programme. How can Camylle’s essential oils add value to a spa?
