The Art of Aromatherapy
Benefits of Aromatherapy and Essential Oils
If we’ve learned anything over the past year, it’s the importance of well-being, both physical and mental. Too often, we bring products into our homes that have ingredients made from synthetic chemicals that do more harm than good. Foster a healthy home with toxin-free and eco-friendly therapeutic essential oils. These natural plant chemical compounds are safe for the whole family and can relieve stress, improve the immune system, and energize the mind.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is a holistic healing practice that uses natural plant extracts. Also known as essential oil therapy, it involves the inhalation or application of aromatic essential oils. It’s been practiced for thousands of years in medical and spiritual applications because it’s known to harmonize, balance, and heal the body, mind, and spirit.
Whether you want to invite tranquility into your home or whether you want to treat a specific condition (such as insomnia, depression, or inflammation), your household will be uplifted by the therapeutic power of essential oils.
Benefits of Aromatherapy
As we mentioned before there are several health benefits of aromatherapy. Whether you want to improve your sleep, increase your immunity, or ignite passion, there’s a scent or combination of scents to restore your health. Discover the benefits of aromatherapy oils below.
Aromatherapy for Mental Health
Stress is an inescapable part of life. While we can’t avoid it, we can manage it. This global pandemic has turned the world upside down, and it’s more important than ever to treat ourselves to a little self-love.
If you’re feeling stressed, try aromatherapy. Spray essential oils in the air or light a candle and take several deep breaths. Your mind and body will release any stored-up tension and bring you to a place of peace. The best scent to manage and relieve stress is lavender. It lowers your heart rate and calms the nervous system .
In addition to helping you manage stress, aromatherapy can also relieve anxiousness and nervousness. Whether you have an anxiety disorder or whether you’re about to head into a job interview, breathe in therapeutic essential oils. The oils will soothe and ground your mind. Some of the best aromatherapeutic scents for anxiousness include lavender and rose.
You can’t properly care for your family or friends if you neglect your own mental well-being. Take a few minutes out of your day to meditate to release stress and anxiety. Some of our favorite essential oils for meditation include lavender, rose, and frankincense. Try meditating with our Tranquil Lavender Mint Soy Candle to care for your mental health. The oils in this candle will allow you to be fully present in all that you do.
