August 16, 2017
Aromatherapy is a bandwagon that you need to hop on. The aroma from essential oils can be incredibly helpful for your mind and body. Not sure where to begin? There are a ton of scents to choose from, but I’m here to fill you in on the 5 most popular options and how each scent can help. Take my word for it, essential oils will help improve your body, both mentally and physically; you’ll feel like a new you in no time!
Peppermint: If you suffer from headaches or migraines, peppermint is best. Peppermint contains menthol so it can relieve not just headaches, but congestion and achy muscles. Rub this essential oil on your temples for a headache, any sore muscles, or diffuse it into the air for the ultimate soothing effect.
Lavender: Having trouble relaxing or getting to sleep? This scent has almost a magical calming effect. It’s helped relieve stress on so many occasions and I almost can’t fall asleep without it now!
Eucalyptus: This scent is so refreshing to breathe in.Eucalyptus oil is an anti-inflammatory and is great for relieving congestion, stuffiness, or coughs when sick. Plus, it just smells so fresh that it is sure to wake you up!
Lemon: Lemon increases mental awareness and basically just spreads #goodvibes.
Jasmine: Need a confidence boost? Jasmine to the rescue! Jasmine is known as an antidepressant because the scent immediately uplifts and causes feelings of optimism.
