We do so many things to create the type of environment we desire for our space: fresh paint to liven things up, soft lighting for a touch of serenity, and art on the walls to reflect our personalities. But one of the simplest ways to affect the atmosphere of your home is to diffuse essential oils for a little DIY aromatherapy.
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the centuries-old practice of using plant essences for therapeutic purposes. The cells that give plants their fragrance are their “essence,” and when an essence is extracted from a plant, it becomes an “essence oil” commonly known as an “essential oil”. When inhaled, the scent molecules in essential oils travel from the olfactory nerves directly to the brain, impacting the amygdala—the emotional center of the brain—and the hypothalamus—the tip of the brain that balances mood, hunger, sleep and which may respond to the oil by creating feel-good brain chemicals like serotonin.
Create Warmth with Organic Clary Sage
During these cool months at the end of winter and beginning of spring, many of us could use a little extra warmth. One sure way to bring a warm, intimate feel to your space is to diffuse comforting, woody, and herbaceous essential oils. So, try Organic Clary Sage, one of the most soothing and balancing essential oils. Use alone, or combine with Basil and Bergamot to enhance the warm, sweet-herbaceous fragrance, and experience the
mildly euphoric feeling they produce.
Find Relaxation with Petitgrain Bigarade
Though the most well-known essential oil for relaxation is undoubtedly Lavender, if you’d like to try something different, AromaTru’s Wild Crafted Petitgrain Bigarade may be just the thing. Steam-distilled from the leaves and twigs of the Bitter Orange tree, it has a fresh, leafy-green, lightly floral, citrus aroma. Diffusing Petitgrain Bigarade essential oil can create a gentle, soothing effect.
