Aromatherapy Recipes Your Clients Will Love

Good smells – like the ones at Cinnabon – entice customers and keep them coming back. One of the reasons people love going to a spa is because certain scents are pleasant, which can help boost mood and promote relaxation.  Many people also like aromatherapy because it has been shown to help relieve stress, anxiety, and depression.
