The Royal Treatment – The New “Old World” Aromatherapy Massage
In the winter of 2021, I visited Egypt and discovered what they call, “Essence”. I was educated by the Egyptian people and historians that there, they still use ancient herbal remedies to heal, cure and relieve simple to complicated ailments. So of course, I had to bring some back home to help everyone I can.
Experience relief, relaxation and restoration of pure, organic, cold pressed plant-based extracts. This is nature’s gift, imported from the old world to the new. Essence reduces anxiety, improves mood, reduces inflammation, helps relieve joint pain, muscle pain and soreness, aids recovery, and helps separate adhesions in fascia and soft tissue…in minutes!!! Pure, organic, herbal remedies that penetrate the skin barrier, enter the blood stream (as do all essential oils) and attach to pain receptors to improve what ails you. Feel what real quality can do for you.
What is Essence and Essence Therapy??
If you’ve ever used or had an Aromatherapy treatment with Essential Oils, you’ve experienced a version of plant extract already. Essence is the highest concentration of a pure, plant-based extract. It is less fragrant than Essential Oil’s but 2 to 4 times more physiologically potent.
Most Essential oils are produced through a process of steam distillation. The plant is introduced to steam, which separates the oil from the plant. The oil is then collected through a skimming process. Essential oils possess some of the plants natural therapeutic herbal value. The problem is that highly elevated temperatures that exist in steam or boiling water, kill the plants molecules and changes its molecular structure, and most times, they are processed with alcohol or other chemicals. This is the reason essential oils have such a strong scent. When you bake, or boil or fry plants or heat pretty much anything, it graduates the smell but dilutes and eliminates some of the nutrients.
With Essence there is NO steam distillation process. All extracts that are truly considered “essence”, are COLD PRESSED. Like “fresh squeezed juice”, the sap of the plant is mechanically pressed away from the plant. It is an organic and far less damaging process that ensures obtaining the most of the plant’s most therapeutic characteristics. The molecules of these plants possess qualities that benefit afflicting conditions of the body.
Essence Therapy is a lot different than Aromatherapy. In an Aromatherapy treatment, typically the therapist will blend several drops of Essential Oils with a carrier oil (which further dilutes the potency and therapeutic effects) and uses it topically during a massage. As the client, are pleased with the smell, because you chose the Essential Oil that was most pleasant to your sense of smell. Your Olfactory system is the most powerful emotional and memory provoking of all your senses.
Unfortunately, this is about all the Essential Oils do most of the time. Why?? There is NO government regulation for Essential Oils in this country. Anyone can SAY it’s pure and 100% natural, without that being true at all. Over 90% of the products on the market today are NOT pure at all. For starters, you cannot mass produce a quality Essential Oil for millions of users. The product must be diluted and stretched by impurities, other inferior quality oils or chemicals, for the masses to have access. Also, for your body to respond to the treatment physiologically (other than emotion and memory), the essential oils must penetrate the skin barrier and the molecules must attach themselves to your body’s nerve endings, sweat glands and enter the bloodstream to be most effective.
At this point, it’s all about dosage. If you are getting a sufficient dosage (meaning there is a quantifiable amount the body can respond to and you feel), you should sense a change and difference. If you are using a pain killing Essence or Essential Oil, you should feel measurably less pain sensitivity during the treatment, especially if you are receiving Deep Tissue, Cupping or the therapist is using a tool or technique that would normally cause far more discomfort. If you are using an Essence or Essential Oil that has inherently relaxing or has anti-anxiety properties, you should feel or sense the change separate from the normal relaxing nature of massage therapy treatment. This should be the experience for every herbal extract that is a physiologically therapeutic topical. It shouldn’t just smell good. Quality makes the difference.
Essence is NOT just an oil. It is Cold-Pressed. It has all the liquid properties squeezed from the plants, with NO chemicals being introduced during the extraction process. It is the sap of the plant. This process ensures the potency and quality are preserved to protect and enhance the intended physiological effects. Historically this method and process has proven to be more effective. That is why the Old World hasn’t changed that process for thousands of years.
Our Essence is imported from Egypt. A place that is globally known for the quality of it’s herbal extracts. Their process does NOT include any steam distillation in the extraction process, ensuring that the plants’ inherent properties are preserved during the collection process. If you have ailments such as arthritis, edema (swelling), pain due to soft tissue damage (muscle, tendon, skin or fascia), soreness, anxiety or emotional stress, and desire to experience something that is organic, pure, safe, extraordinarily effective and ACTUALLY works, very well, try our ROYAL TREATMENT. It’s not new but it’s new in this country.

King Tut and Cleopatra – Both of these ancient “secret” Essence blends were worn by the King and Queen of Egypt. They each had their own blends designed to help them with their own individual ailments or anxieties. Each of these are known throughout the Middle East and old world for their unique fragrance and effects. Both are captivating, alluring and impactful anti-inflammatories, pain killing relaxants and anxiety reducing topicals that can be worn as a daily scent. They have dosages or Rose, Vanilla, Jasmine, Papyrus and Blue Lotus.
The Pharoah (Ruler of Egypt) – After dozens of hours laboring over what blends are the most effective and pleasant, I discovered that they all work well with NARD.
