Fall is filled with wonderful aromas: cinnamon, peppermint, nutmeg. Some aromas have a healing affect on our bodies from stimulating mood enhancing chemicals to balancing hormones, and even signaling muscle relaxation. Aromatherapy is the use of essential oils to stimulate healing in the body and can take many forms such as inhaling the essential oil through the use of diffusers or applying essential oils during a massage. Clinical evidence has shown that certain aromas can help in specific ways.
Essential oils can vary greatly in quality. Synthetic fragrance will not have the health benefits of the volatile oils extracted from plants. It is important to use organic, high quality oils when using aromatherapy.
Below is a list of common applications for various essential oils:
- Lavender – for muscle relaxation and stress reduction
- Chamomile – for relaxation and to induce sleep
- Neroli – to calm anxiety and nervous tension
- Peppermint – to calm nausea and upset stomach
