Everyone has stress in their lives, especially in these times. The good news is you don’t have to accept it as a part of your daily life. Aromatherapy is a natural way that you can reduce and fight daily stress. Here are some ways you can use aromatherapy to help eliminate stress and start living a more peaceful life.
Rub a known stress relieving aromatherapy oil like lavender on your hands. Deeply inhale the scent on your hands to get the most benefits. You can also apply the oil on pillows, in your car, towels and clothes. Apply the oil on anything that you can smell for continuous stress relieving benefits.
Light some aromatherapy candles and allow them to burn for a while in a room of your choice. When the room is filled with the scent, relax in it for a while. A few good aromatherapy scent choices for relaxing include rose, vanilla and mint.
Having a massage using aromatherapy oils is a wonderful way to reduce stress. If possible, have your partner give you the massage. Afterwards, you can rub aromatherapy lotions on your body to carry the relaxing benefits throughout your day.
Add five to six drops of essential oil to your warm bath water. Mix it in with your hands. Soak in the tub for about 15 minutes. This will allow the oils to penetrate the skin and relax your muscles. When you inhale the scent, it will also calm your nerves and mind.
