How are you feeling?
Life is challenging. Perhaps you’re facing loss… loss of sleep, health, a job or maybe even loss of a loved one.
Stress and anxiety from any number of situations could be taking a toll on your mental state, your quality of sleep and your overall health.
Aromatherapy is not a cure-all, but there are essential oils that can help. Let us recommend a few aromatherapy blends that have helped us through some difficult times.
Essential Oil Blends for...
Stress & Anxiety
Aromatherapy can help you in your quest for natural anxiety relief. Even the simple act of applying the essential oil blends to your palms and breathing deeply into your cupped hands can help reduce stress. Bergamot, lavender and ylang ylang oils (in Relax) and rose (in Comfort) are comforting and calming scents you can add to your self-care ritual.
Sleep is crucial for our mental, emotional and physical health. But as we get older (and more stressed) it gets harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. There are so many factors, but tossing and turning at night is often the result of a turbulent mind. Add relaxing essential oil blends to your night time ritual for a more restful sleep and a better tomorrow.
In addition to Comfort (with Melissa and rose), which we created specifically for grief, and for the anger, shock and sadness it brings, you would likely find solace in the following blends. The lavender in Relax and the patchouli, sandalwood and rhododendron leaf in Balance are all deeply calming essential oils that would be a boon to your self-care ritual.
Frequently Asked Questions
Aromatherapy is not necessarily curative — it supports wellness and is a beautiful pillar in your self-care routine. We suggest trying it daily for at least two weeks to see how it works for you. Also, since different bodies respond to different essential oils, we suggest trying an exploration set of three or more blends to see which ones are most effective for you personally.
Aromatherapy blends have traditionally been formulated for effect, but we also blend for beauty. We strive to create scents that you'll love. That said, scent is subjective. We suggest trying an exploration set of three or more blends to see which you find most the agreeable and effective.
When it comes to aromatherapy, stronger is not always better. Sometimes adding too much of an essential oil can have unintended effects. For that reason, blends are subtle by design and usually contain only 1-3% essential oil. Our blends have just a slightly higher concentration of essential oils but are still much more subtle than even natural perfumes. We suggest starting out slowly by applying to pulse points, and re-applying as needed.
