Aromatherapy And Ways To Feel Better In Life
Aromatherapy has long been used to enhance the quality of life for a number of individuals. The goal of aromatherapy is to tailor therapy according to the needs and wants of the individual.
It is relatively easy for an individual, or aromatherapy practitioner, to identify and pinpoint the essential oil blends that will produce the desired results for the individual. Aromatherapy users have different needs, some desire stress and pain relief, others want to use aromatherapy as part of their beautification process, and others want to use aromatherapy as a cleansing agent.
As you can see, there are several ways by which aromatherapy can enhance your life.
If you are under a great deal of stress, you may find that aromatherapy will aid in the relaxation of your mind and body. It is very useful along with healthy living, good time management, and a quality support group. There are a variety of blends that support a happy, calm, and serene lifestyle, while other blends help ease panic and anxiety.
These blends can created in bath salts, bath oils, air fresheners, diffusers, and massage oils. Diffusers spread the aroma of the essential oils around allowing you to inhale them throughout the day. You may also find aromatherapy preparations which can be applied directly to the skin. Aromatherapy brings stress relief and sense of well-being.
Aromatherapy essential oils can also help promote weight loss. The scent of vanilla-infused candles can be inhaled to reduce cravings for sweets. Patchouli can be inhaled to lessen hunger. Reducing snack intake and hunger will result in weight loss.
If you feel insecurity is to blame for your weight gain, try inhaling bergamot and jasmine. This is said to help boost confidence. The best blend is 16 drops of bergamot to 4 drops of jasmine. This can be mixed aind disseminated in your diffuser. If you want extra benefits, add 4 drops of veviter.
Aches and pains grow more common the older we get. Many of these can be eased through the use of special aromatherapy blends. Look for pain easing massage oils, skin balms, or booboo juices. You can also mix your own. To create massage oil, use one ounce of the carrier oil of your choice and add 10 drops of essential oil of your choice. Your unique mixture can be used to massage away aches and pains.
One popular way aromatherapy is used is in skin care, to help keep your skin looking youthful. You can make your own products from natural and essential aromatherapy oils. You can create moisturizers, shampoos, conditioners, facials, lotions, mouthwash, and much more.
