Are you looking for better ways to naturally enhance your health and wellbeing? Whilst most commonly known for its ability to facilitate deep relaxation, aromatherapy and essential oils also have the power to boost energy, aid concentration, reduce stress & anxiety, calm the emotions and lift your mood. Produced from aromatic plant extracts either cold pressed or steam distilled, essential oils offer a range of physical and psychological benefits, making them a wonderfully revitalising natural remedy. In addition to various healing properties, essential oils emanate refreshingly enticing scents and aromas that are perfect for every experience and state of mind. It’s important to make sure you choose certified organic essential oils to avoid harmful chemicals and pesticides being absorbed by the skin.
To help you harness the power of essential oils and aromatherapy, here are a few of the best ways to maximise your aromatic experience, as well as some of our favourite oil blends for daily use:
Get the most out of your essential oils:
Diffusing oils throughout your day is a great way to get into the zone - whatever that may be. Refreshing and uplifting oils are perfect for adding a bit of energy to your morning whilst more relaxing or sedative oils can be used before bedtime to assist with a deep and restful sleep.
Many people also like to apply oils topically to the feet, wrists, chest and most other pulse points. Applying certain oils directly to the skin can assist with a variety of ailments, pains and problem areas - as well as emanating a delicious aroma from the skin!
Reset your mind and get the full effect of your gorgeous oils by inhaling them straight from the bottle. There are so many different oils with varying benefits available so pick the one that suits your mood or schedule and inhale as needed throughout the day. Applying to the hands or piece of clothing is also a great way to inhale your oils but be wary - many can stain so be careful what you apply it to.
Adding a few drops of your oils to a warm bath is another great way to experience the full effect of aromatherapy, allowing you to submerge yourself into a deeply relaxing or meditative state. If you have a sensitive skin type, try to avoid oils such as cinnamon, lemongrass and cassia as they have the potential to irritate the skin.
Whether it’s a solo activity or partner-assisted, including essential oils in your next massage will enable a full sensory experience whilst easing tension and aiding circulation. One of the best ways to do this is to choose a base oil such as jojoba or avocado oil and add a few drops of your favourite aromas to enhance the experience.
