What is aromatherapy and how can it help you? Aromatherapy is the practice of inhaling the scent of aromatic essential oils from a variety of plants. It has been used for thousands of years for a wide range of purposes, and by people from every country. The reason it is so effective is because our sense of smell is directly connected to the limbic system, which is a part of our brain that is responsible for sending a chemical message to our nervous system. Aromatherapy is often associated with luxury, but there are many health benefits to using it as well. Here are a few benefits you may notice when you begin using aromatherapy:
It can help relieve anxiety and promote relaxation
Evident in any spa around the globe, this is the most common use of aromatherapy. Many different scents can be used to help take away the stress of the day: lemon, lavender, and jasmine to name a few. These oils are known to be effective in soothing your mind and balancing your mood. Put one of these scent cartridges into your aromatherapy shower head and enjoy the most relaxing shower of your life!
It can boost energy and promote focus
The second most popular use for aromatherapy is to give you a boost of energy so you can start your day right! It won’t just give you a boost of energy though, the right scents can keep your mind from wandering, racing, or getting distracted. Bonus: by using aromatherapy to boost your energy instead of an excess of other stimulants such as energy drinks, you can avoid the jittery side effects! Try using our lemon, citrus mango or eucalyptus cartridge and say goodbye to that midday slump!
It can relieve pain and promote healing
Eucalyptus and lavender are sure to become one of your favorite scents if you suffer from headaches, a sensitive immune system, or inflammation. These scents are known to stimulate oxygen and blood flow to the areas of your body that need it most, and can even boost your immune system with their antimicrobial properties. They are known to provide relief for some skin conditions too!
It can help you sleep better
There is no doubt that all of us are in need of a good night’s sleep. Aromatherapy can ease you into such a deep state of relaxation that it can lull you into a deep sleep. It can even promote the re-regulation of your circadian rhythm over time. If you struggle with not being able to get a restful sleep, commit to using lavender for 15 days and see how your rest improves!
