Essential oils gently fill the air of our private space. Each service begins with a deep cleansing breath in, and a rosewater mist over the guest's face on the exhale. Rosewater helps to support the natural pH of the skin, sooth irritation, and promote hydration. An ancient Chinese belief is that it can clear spaces of negative energy. Rosewater has been regarded for its medicinal and purifying properties in the ancient Near East, and is still used today. This is Green Grotto's way of paying homage to an old tradition, while encouraging guests to unwind and unplug from the pressures of the day.

Aromatherapy scalp massages are given before haircut and styling services. Hand massages take the place of scalp massages during color services. A thorough analysis of the hair and scalp is given at the beginning of the service, and Erica uses products that help restore balance.
