We all have busy and stressful lives, which can at times take its toll on our moods and wellbeing. We spend our whole lives rushing from A to B and from one problem to the next, without taking time out to recharge and re-energize the body and mind. Living like this for too long can have adverse affects on your health and can cause you to feel depressed and fatigued.
The use of Aromatherapy oil and some simple techniques can help to re-vitalise and recharge your flagging batteries. You don’t need to be a professional to use these techniques; all you need is a few minutes out of your busy schedule, to practice these simple methods.
If you awake in morning, feeling exhausted and you have a tough day ahead, an aromatherapy bath will mentally prepare you for the rest of the day. 6 drops of Peppermint oil, blended with Rosemary and Juniper will make an excellent morning bath, which will both energize and uplift.
If you are feeling mentally fatigued in the mornings, during your commute to work, you could try a single drop of Rosemary oil on each wrist. The energizing and stimulating properties of the Rosemary oil will uplift, clear the head and make you alert for the day ahead.
In the evening, after a hard day, a simple oil burner and some relaxing music can do wonders for your moods. A few drops of energising aromatherapy oil such as Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon or Citronella will lift the spirit and calm the nerves. These citrus oils also blend well with Bergamot, which is also a great oil to refresh and relax with.
You can also use simple aromatherapy techniques in the workplace, to keep up your energy levels and concentration throughout the day. An oil burner on the desk is not always convenient, so you could try making a simple air spray consisting of Flower Water and essential oils. Mix together in a spray bottle, shake well and spray when you are in need of a tonic.
By following these simple techniques, along with others that you will learn as you progress in the world of aromatherapy, you will find that the stresses and strains of everyday life will soon become more manageable.
