Re-enforce the power of odour with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $30 worth of natural bath and body products from Escents Aromatherapy. This Groupon is valid for redemption at all seven Escents locations in the Vancouver area.
Escents uses pure essential oils and scents from all corners of the globe to wage wellness on British Columbia’s bodies through aromatherapeutic treatments. Choose from Escents’ expansive array of essential oils to halt headaches, block bug bites, and alleviate aches, among numerous other reputed positive side effects. The eucalyptus globulus ($7.95 for a 5 ml bottle) freshens the air and can eliminate toxins with its camphor-rich and koala-doctor-approved scent, and the rosemary’s fresh odour ($9.95 for a 5 ml bottle) is said to enhance mental clarity and relieve the body of acne, indigestion, and muscle pains. For the best of Escents’ blends, opt for a scent from its signature collection, such as the grapefruit-and-mandarin energy blast of Squeeze or the rose-and-jasmine heart tickle of Love. Escents doesn’t only vend vitalizing vials for adding to baths and bases—it also offers aromatherapy colognes, deodorants, and body butters for direct-to-skin delight. Organic concoctions are also available for customers desiring the all-natural replenishing that generally only comes from rubbing magic seashells on teeth.
