Soothing the Soul with Aromatherapy

 

It’s no secret that life is pretty unpredictable right now. And with that uncertainty it’s normal to feel overwhelmed, anxious or burnt out. Going through something as massive as a pandemic can be hard and looking for ways to make ourselves feel better should be our number one priority. If you’re looking for a more natural and holistic way to lift your spirits, using essential oils and aromatherapy can be a great way to do this.

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing practice that uses natural plant extracts to encourage health and wellness. These essential oils are made by taking extracts from flowers, leaves, stems, peels, bark, or roots and have been proven to be helpful for people experiencing a number of different health issues.

 

How does it work?

The essential oils that are used in aromatherapy work by activating the smell receptors in your nose. These receptors send a message directly to your brain’s limbic system which can affect things like your emotions, memory or appetite. By inhaling these essential oils, you can stimulate different bodily responses, depending on how you’re feeling.
