Relaxation is an important way to help with stress-related various health problems. Whatever helps you to relax can help you cope with everyday stress.
Aromatherapy is one of the techniques that helps to restore the body’s natural resilience to stress. It can be easily used at home. Just place a few drops in your diffuser to fill the room with the relaxing scent or apply a relaxing body oil or add a few drops to water and spray onto your pillowcase. Aromatherapy treats best the emotional signs of stress that lead to the physical ones.
Research has shown that some essential oils such as bergamot, lavender, chamomile, produce an anxiolytic, anxiety relieving effect and increase the body’s production of serotonin.
We know that some stress could be productive, it can give you drive to help you achieve goals, but too much of it is damaging.
A lot of people who turn to aromatherapy for help are suffering from stress. The most helpful way to use aromatherapy against stress is aromatherapy massage to help release stress and bring a person on to a deep state of relaxation.
Stress disturbs the balance of physical and mental health. The sources of stress are not the problem, but the way we react to them. The most useful way is to recognise the problem and take active steps to reduce the levels of stress suffered by the body. Aromatherapy is one of the effective de-stressing techniques.
Essential oils with sedative and antidepressant qualities can induce relaxation. These include:
- Clary sage
- Ylang ylang
When people are under stress aromatic baths can be used as an aid to relaxation. Make bath time a ritual; set some time aside when all the gadgets are switched off, choose a favourite essential oil or blend to add to the bath and simply relax. But massage is probably the best remedy, so get massaged as often as you possibly can.
Nature’s botanical scents can not only enrich our mental wellbeing but forge new pathways for us to reach the healing energies of the plant realms.
The nature of scent can support our relaxation by transporting us to a particular time or memory (infuse the space around us by diffusing essential oils) and sent molecules travelling through to the brains’ emotional centre, creating subtle shifts in mood and emotions.
We formulate our AromaSense products to deliver healthy body and balanced mind, we address lifestyle challenges, the impacts of stress and sleep issues due to the properties of the essential oils we use.
