TAHOE VISTA, Calif. — Sunshine and sweet flowers always make for such a beautiful summer season. We currently have three large Rose bushes growing in our front yard and the aroma is completely divine.

The Rose is a confident and regal bloom that carries feelings of love buried within its crimson petals. Rose essential oil is a fabulous tonic for the heart muscle and the back in general.

Our topic this week covers the generous and fiercely loyal sign known as Leo. This fire sign is portrayed as a lion because the typical Leo is known as fearless and prideful.

Leos are quite magnetic and charming — they are ruled by the Sun, and therefore they shine light and warmth wherever they roam.

This particular zodiac sign is also known to have heart ailments and strain involving the spine and back. Rose essential oil can help to eliminate sore muscles because it is anti-spasmodic in nature.

Apply a drop or two in a tablespoon of olive oil for a soothing and sensuous massage blend. Rose essential oil helps to warm the body and increase circulation; hence, it has the power to aid in the healing of cold hands and feet as well as lackluster hair.

Leos are known to have vanity issues that revolve around the hair or mane; therefore, Rose essential oil can be used quite effectively to beautify this vulnerable area.

The scent of Rose essential oil is unlike any other, so deep and velvety, rich and enchanting — this particular smell is liked by most anyone.

Do not let the summer season scorch your hair and skin — come by the spa for a luxurious body treatment. Our fantastic therapists will whisk you away for some serious self-care featuring fabulous essential oils of your choice.

We will be sure to attend to your every need while you slip away into a blissful reprieve.
