10 Essential Oils for Relaxation
Essential oils encourage us to take a deep breath, relax our bodies and notice the beauty around us. These are my top 10 essential oils to keep on hand to help freshen up the house or to unwind after a rough day.
Some of my favorite methods of application include diffusers, many bath and body products and spa therapy. Being pampered is always uplifting!
I hope you enjoy these essential oils as much as I do.
Chamomile - Reduces stress and tension while promoting peace.
Clary Sage - Inspires a sense of euphoria, reduces emotional stress, and is slightly intoxicating.
Geranium - This delicate flora scent is uplifting, calming and balancing.
Grapefruit - Inspires a sense of euphoria.
Lavender - A classic flora scent that is calming, brings emotional warmth while easing loneliness and encouraging self-reflection.
Lemon - A fresh and clean scent that adds a bright pep to your step.
Patchouli - A rejuvenating and earthy scent that inspires peace of mind.
Peppermint - Sometimes relaxing is just about snapping out of negative thoughts. The high menthol content is cooling and sedative.
Sandalwood - A sweet and woody scent that tends to be grounding and induce inner quiet.
Ylang Ylang - A sultry, divine and delicate aroma that can soothe anger, inspire euphoria and be an aphrodisiac!
Many of these essential oils are included in Calendula Bath and Home products. Add a few to your daily routine to enjoy an uplifting aromatherapy session every day.
