4 Ways To Add Aromatherapy Into Your Skincare
In a world where the majority of us live our lives through social media, it’s no secret that the last few weeks have been draining to say the least. From a worldwide pandemic to the recent exposure of worldwide racial injustice, it’s taken its toll on a lot of us. While we wholeheartedly agree that it’s SO important to highlight what’s going on right now. We also see the need to ensure that we are taking the right time to look after ourselves, through the practice of regular self care and making our mental health a priority.
Aromatherapy has largely been linked to reducing stress, anxiety and improving sleep quality and concentration. This is achieved through the use of calming essential oils, which are found in aromatherapy treatments and are said to stimulate smell receptors in the nose, which then send messages through the nervous system and the limbic system, AKA the part of the brain which controls emotion, motivation and learning.
If you are finding life a little overwhelming, try taking a step away from social media for a little while and focus on spending time on what makes you happy.
