For over 5,000 years, aromatherapy has been a trusted practice among cultures around the world.
Natural healers turn to aromatherapy for the many effects of aromatic essential oils.
We here at Vovi want to share our top five body and mind benefits we believe will help you:
1. Stress Relief
The most popular use of aromatherapy is for stress relief. The compounds from many different essential oils are known as relaxants and can help ease your mind and help get rid of anxiety. This is why most people use it at home. The mixtures are very simple and the research on aromatherapy is very well-known and widely studied. Some of the best essential oils for stress relief are lemon oil, lavender, bergamot and peppermint oil. Some studies have also shown that lemon oil can improve mood and reduce outbursts of anger.
2. Acts as Antidepressant
Aromatherapy is very commonly used to eliminate feelings of depression, and due to the complicated side effects of pharmaceutical antidepressants, this is a very important function of aromatherapy. While this is useful, seek psychological help or counseling if depression continues or worsens. In terms of the best essential oils to use for reducing depression, we here at Vovi suggest peppermint, chamomile, lavender, and jasmine.
3. Boosts Memory
One of the most frightening diseases affecting older people is memory loss and the inability to form short-term memories. While Alzheimer’s is still considered an incurable disease, there are certain ways to reduce or slow down the progression of the condition. Aromatherapy has been used as an alternative for dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Studies have also shown the benefits of aromatherapy in younger patients, in terms of boosting their memory capacity for a certain amount of time after the treatment. This refreshing boost for the brain can be useful in all walks of life, no matter what age you are! Sage oil is the most recommended oil for this sort of memory-enhancing effect.
4. Increases Energy Levels
All of us could use a little more energy right? Stimulants like coffee, cigarettes, energy pills, or even illegal substances can be very damaging on your body. While diet and exercise help, many people use aromatherapy to feel better. Many essential oils are known to increase circulation, raise energy levels, and generally stimulate the body and mind, without the dangerous side effects of other stimulating substances. The best essential oils for giving yourself an energy boost include black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, jasmine, tea tree, rosemary, and sage.
5. Speeds up Healing
Many essential oils can help increase healing throughout your body. This can be due to increased oxygen and blood flow to wounds as well as internal healing processes like those following surgeries or illness. Certain essential oil properties keep the body protected during these delicate healing stages of the body. Some of the most popular essential oils for speeding up the healing process of the body include lavender, calendula, rosehip and buckthorn essential oils. A number of these oils do more than just healing wounds; they can reduce the severity and discomfort of skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema.
These are just a few of the benefits and we here at Vovi hope you will consider trying aromatherapy out to be the best you in 2019!
