How Aromatherapy can help support your Health and Wellbeing

Aromatherapy is a complementary therapy, that uses essential oils derived from plants and flowers. It is designed to treat the whole body, and it aims to assist with the body’s natural ability to heal and recover from stress and illness. It is one of the most popular complementary therapies, with essential oils used to treat and prevent illness, as well as encourage rest and relaxation. It is especially beneficial for stress-related issues such as headaches, insomnia, and anxiety.

Aromatherapy is the foundation of our company, we created our range of aromatherapy products, so that people could experience the benefits of essential oils on a daily basis. We offer products that not only smell amazing, but all have a specific therapeutic purpose too.

Aromatherapy has a powerful effect because it taps into our limbic system. This part of the brain deals with emotions, memories, and stimulation, and can also influence your hormonal responses. Once inhaled, essential oils can stimulate memories, moods, and feelings.

Here are five ways you can harness the power of essential oils to support your health and wellbeing;

 Sleep Aid

Around a third of us suffer with sleep issues, which can affect not only our physical health but also our mental wellbeing. Using essential oils such as Patchouli, Lavender and Frankincense can help you unwind. Why not try our Calm Himalayan Bath Salts before bed?

Mood Boost

We all have times when we feel overwhelmed, physically, and mentally drained and in need of a recharge. Essential oils such as Lemon, Grapefruit and Orange all stimulate your mind and uplift your mood. Spray our Recharge Room and Linen Spray around your house to boost your mood.

Skin Support

Aromatherapy can help with many skin issues - from sore, irritated skin, blemishes and scars, and even fine lines and wrinkles. Rose Geranium is wonderful for mature skin, and oils such as Lavender and Mandarin can soothe skin. Try our Nourish Body Oil to firm, tone and hydrate the skin.

Stress Relief

If we don't act, stress and anxiety can adversely affect our physical and mental wellbeing. Essential Oils are a great tool to support your emotions. Lavender can calm the nervous system, and Ylang Ylang can alleviate anxiety. Burn our Inner Peace Soy Candle to bring in relaxation, tranquillity and calm.

Physical Health Support

Aromatherapy isn't only useful for supporting your emotions. Essential oils have many benefits for your physical health too. They can promote faster skin healing, ease aches and pains, treat hormone imbalances and can even destroy harmful bacteria. Use our Purify 70% Alcohol Hand Sanitiser for a natural, highly effective antibacterial hand sanitiser spray to keep hands clean and soft when on the go.
