Benefits of various aromatherapy oils

Thursday, July 02, 2020

Aromatherapy is a wonderful technique that can be used to treat various ailments and concerns. Each type of oil has a different effect on the body and mind. These are some of the most popular aromatherapy oils available. Some are used all on their own and others are combined for an even greater effect.

Lavender

This beautiful floral scent is excellent for relaxation. It can also help alleviate headaches. If you are feeling stressed, you should consider lavender aromatherapy oils.

Rose

There is no mistaking this sweet scent and it is also known to reduce anxiety and it can also be used to treat acne. Remember, aromatherapy oils have multiple uses. They can be applied to the skin but this usually requires blending them with a carrier oil. While applied to the skin, they serve their other purpose as you take in that amazing scent.

Lemon

Lemon oil is commonly used in various beauty products and the scent is unmistakable. As this scent fills the air, you will notice that it has a fantastic invigorating effect. So, if you are feeling tired or your energy levels are low, this oil can help give you a boost.

Cinnamon

When applied topically, cinnamon oil can help ease sore muscles. In aromatherapy, it is excellent for helping clear up chest colds. Of course, there are many people who simply enjoy this oil because they love the scent so much.

Rosemary

Unlike many other oils, rosemary aromatherapy oil is a stimulant. This means that it can increase your blood pressure, respiratory rate and heart rate when inhaled. For this reason, those who find themselves mentally drained enjoy using this oil. It has been shown to increase brain wave activity and you can combine it with other oils like eucalyptus to give your home that fresh forest smell.

As you can see, each aromatherapy oil has a different effect on your mood and the way you feel. Which is all the more reason why you should let your aromatherapy practitioner know how you are feeling before you begin. They will be able to select the right oils to suit your needs.
