Aromatherapy for Stress Relief

Aromatherapy for Stress Relief



Aromatherapy is a holistic practice using essential oils from plant materials to promote healing for body, mind, and spirit. Aromatherapy has been traced back to ancient civilizations. Evidence of essential oil distillation for healing purposes, emotional and physical, health maintenance, and fragrance dates back to 1500 B.C. in India and Egypt. Aromatherapy can be used for its medicinal properties, and the scents work to balance emotions and benefit overall health. 


Aromatherapy practices enhance the quality of life by reducing stress and can be used for their medicinal properties to aid some infections and ailments. When inhaled, essential oils signal to the brain to evoke memories, feel pleasure, and relax us. Each oil has unique qualities that can enhance focus, calm anxiety, uplift mood, bring pleasure, and promote deeper sleep.


There are several ways you can start incorporating essential oils into your daily routine for their stress relieving benefits and improved quality of life. Stress plays a big role in our immune system health. Compacted stress weakens the immune system making us more vulnerable to illness. Aromatherapy practices contribute to better health and improved brain function and balance. When we manage our stress, we set ourselves up to perform tasks more efficiently. Using essential oils for stress relief is simple and has long-lasting results that benefit overall health.


Applied topically, essential oils enter the bloodstream and react with hormones and enzymes in the body. Essential oils contain various chemical constituents believed to be antiseptic, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory and may help heal conditions like fungal infections and wounds. Learning how to utilize essential oils can enhance quality of life and overall health.
