Have you ever remembered a moment, recalled a sensation, a person or a place after feeling a certain smell or fragrance, even for a few seconds?
Experts confirm: our smell is directly connected to the part of the brain where memories are concentrated and where emotions arise. The use of essential oils is a centuries-old practice that had a variety of purposes, but aromatherapy as we know it today, for therapeutic purposes and a source of well-being arises accidentally only in the 1920s by the hand of a French chemist. The most convenient way of using essential oils is on massages or soaking bath, but in the daily rush, it’s not easy to have time for it.
The Skinjay brand arrived in Portugal in 2015 and aims to transform a routine into an experience. The idea is not new, but it’s innovative. With a capsule-shaped like a well-known coffee brand – and a simple-to-install module that fits on the tap and shower hose, you can take the SPA to your hotel room.
At Grande Hotel do Porto we aim to give our guests an unforgettable experience so, on the suite rooms, we have available the essential oils from Skinjay. Each capsule has different characteristics and you can choose from the one that suits you best, whether it is for relaxation, for a peaceful night’s sleep, for boosting the immune system or for energy for a busy schedule day.
Regardless of the choice, one thing is unavoidable: you’ll have to try it!
