The widespread use of aromatherapy started in the early 20th century in France. It is a method of using essential oils of certain plants and flowers for their therapeutic and medicinal properties. It's mainly used to uplift, calm, stimulate and revitalize a person's mind, much like a perfume, but these oils have strong healing properties. Though these oils are used mostly at home in a variety of ways, you must handle them with care because they are potent! You should never apply an essential oil directly to your skin, without first diluting it with a carrier oil, like olive, almond or coconut oil.

You can use your favorite oil in your bath or burner to relax and get rid of stress and use it to treat colds and coughs.

Best Way to Relax Using Aromatherapy?

Take Note of Your Breath!

  • Practice mindful breathing (On a count of 4 breathe in then hold your breath for 2 counts exhale while counting 4 more). Breathe for ten minutes and think of NOTHING! Stretch for five minutes every day.
  • Get a Full Body Massage with natural oils such as Extra Virgin Coconut Oil. Bathe in a warm tub filled with Epsom Salt and 4 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil. Place two Amethyst Crystals near you to help Calm your nerves, dim the lights. Rest for twenty minutes. Meditate with an Aromatherapy Incense or a Soy Scented Candle and listen to calming music you love.
  • Sing your favorite tune in your heart or out loud.
  • Practice Emotional Freedom by tapping on Your Meridian Points.
  • Watch a funny movie from time to time.

    Nice Jason! Relax when no one is home. Take a solemn break from the cares of everyday to give yourself time to recharge.
