The Nose Knows! Why Organic Essential Oils Are Good For Us
Selling your house? Then make sure you brew some freshly ground coffee or bake some bread before potential buyers come round. It’s an old real estate agent’s trick, almost a cliché these days, but it works. And it works for the simple reason that we delight in these familiar aromas. We smell them and we instantly feel better.
The same applies to essential oils. Place a few drops of your favorite organic essential oil in a diffuser and suddenly the whole ambience of your home changes. Everything feels lighter, less complicated and you feel immeasurably better. But this time it’s no trick. As medical evidence is increasingly showing, high quality, organic essential oils are good for us. Used in aromatherapy, they carry enormous benefits for our wellbeing and can have a positive effect on conditions as diverse as:
- Eczema and other skin irritations
- Memory loss
- Digestive, menstrual and circulation problems
- General muscle and body aches and pains
What research has shown, in particular, is that aromatherapy can have a positive effect on our brain waves, encouraging the release of ‘feel-good’ hormones and altering our mood and behavior in ways which serve to relieve stress, decrease levels of cortisol, and promote relaxation. Did you know, for example, that Lavender has been found to increase feelings of contentment, as well as improve cognitive performance? That Ylang Ylang can promote calmness and reduce stress? Or that Lemongrass has anti-depressant properties?
Importantly, we only use natural ingredients of the highest quality in the Aroma Range. All our essential oil blends are 100% organic and our luscious bath and body, organic massage oils, each contain more than 97% organic ingredients.
So, what are you waiting for? Try one of our wonderful Aroma blends and discover for yourself the difference it can make to your mood and levels of wellbeing. Your nose will thank you, your body and mind will thank you, and so will your soul.
