Do you often find yourself feeling overwhelmed? Or are those around you teetering on the verge of emotional meltdown?
Most of us at some point have experienced the aromatic quality of an essential oil, from the scent of a rose to the aroma of freshly cut rosemary. These naturally occurring aromatic compounds are found in the bark, stems, roots, flowers and other parts of plants. They are powerfully fragrant and give the plants their distinctive smells.
When we inhale the scent of an essential oil, the aroma moves through to the limbic part of our brain, our emotional control centre, and can have a positive effect on our moods and emotions.
Essential oils can be used simply and effectively for all members of your family.
Easily integrated into your daily routine they can elevate the mood, balance the emotions, and support restful, quality sleep.
Whether inhaled or applied topically essential oils can: • Promote whole body relaxation
- Encourage a positive mind
- Ease nervous tension
- Promote self confidence
- Support restful, quality sleep • Quieten busy minds
