Aromatherapy, fragrance oils and other yummy scented thing

Posted by Colleen McKie Categories: Advice,

There are several studies floating out there that make the connection between certain scents and well being.  Cinnamon, vanilla and pumpkin pie are known to relax.  Other scents, such as orange and grapefruit are thought to stimulate the mind.  Each of us has certain scents that help relax us and others that might kick in the flight or fight in us or bring on feelings of sadness.  Usually these scents are closely associated with an important memory we’ve stored in our minds. aromatherapy

Aromatherapy, on the other hand, is more scientifically based.  Certain essential oils can help with a wide variety of ailments.  Lavender, peppermint neroli, rosemary, eucalyptus and a whole slew of other essence oils can help with stress, concentration depression, headaches, congestion and other ailments. 

There are two basic ways that you can use an essential oil: inhale or apply directly.  For example, if you have a head cold, boiling some water, adding a drop or two of eucalyptus and then inhaling the steam can clear you out.  Rubbing some lavender on your temples can help relieve a headache.  You can get the same level of relief as with over the counter meds, but without putting drugs into your system. 

I am a huge fan of scented candles and I almost always have one or two burning.  I also have oil burner and by adding just a drop or two of my favorite essence oil, not only do I make my house smell great, but I also get the benefit of the aromatherapy.

Nice idea, my wife is using <a href=“https://www.mydoterra.com/review/#/”>Doterra oils blends</a> with her Diffuser. It gives the home a great smell. A great recipe we use in the cold winter months is 3 drops of wide orange, 2 drops of cinnamon, 1 drop of cardamom and 1 drop of clove.
