Can Aromatherapy Fix All Your Life's Problems? Probably Not, But Here's What it Can Do

 

Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to enhance physical and emotional wellness. There are a number of ways to use essential oils, but our favorite is adding them to a water-filled diffuser that breaks them down and disperses them into the air. 


Essential oils are made from the concentrated extraction of the fragranced cells in leaves, bark, flowers and seeds of plants. These oils are all natural and packed with benefits; consider them nature’s offering to us.


Aromatherapy is a safe and holistic method to improve health and it has become the go-to treatment for many. As the essential oils are diffused through the air, they reach the brain, lungs and then the rest of the body, triggering physical reactions. Some of the main benefits are:

  • Sleep: Some floral oils activate parts of the brain that cause muscles to relax and heart rate to slow down, which not only prompts sleep but improves the quality by helping to achieve deeper levels.
  • Ease Headaches: As many headaches are caused by tension in the head muscles and poor sleep, essential oils are guaranteed to alleviate some of the pain. 
  • Reduce Nausea: As essential oils trigger areas in the brain that affect digestion and stress, they ease the feeling of nausea. 
  • Ease Flu Symptoms: Essential oils act as a respiratory disinfectant and decongestant which is especially beneficial during allergy, cold  and flu seasons. 
  • Promotes Relaxation: When certain oils are inhaled they stimulate the limbic system which is connected to emotions. This affects breathing patterns, heart rate, stress, blood pressure and hormone balance, thus the holistic healing effect on the body!
