Aromatherapy for mood
Whether you start your diffuser the moment you wake up, put a drop of oil on your wrists as you head out the door, or incorporate essential oils into your massage routine, aromatherapy can be great for your mood. Here are a few oils you can try when you need a little change in outlook.
We’re firm believers in taking time for self-care. Aromatherapy during bathtime can soothe the body and the soul. Using essential oils in the bath is easy! Add 5-8 drops directly to the water as the tub fills or make your own bath salts or bath bombs. For extra luxury—and moisture for your skin—mix 5-8 drops of oil in 2 tablespoons of V-6™ or coconut oil before adding to your bathwater.
Staying relaxed throughout pregnancy is key to keeping you and baby happy! Those nine months are exciting yet stressful—outfitting the nursery, visiting the doctor, choosing a name. Make sure you take the time to pamper yourself with a little aromatherapy. Diffuse or dilute and apply these essential oils so you can keep calm while carrying on!*
Nothing relaxes muscles like a great massage. Throw essential oils into the mix and you’ll really be living that spa life! Create a custom blend of oils and add it to some V-6 or add a few drops of your favorite scent to one of our many massage oils. Massage therapy + aromatherapy = double the relaxation power!
Our bodies need sleep to stay healthy and happy—establishing a healthy nighttime routine is key! According to the Mayo Clinic, research suggests that incorporating aromatherapy during bedtime can help trigger your brain to know that it’s time to snooze. You can go simple by adding a couple drops of your favorite settle-down scent to a cotton ball, or you can mix the oil in a spray bottle with distilled water and spritz it on your pillow.
Whether the smell of your homemade curry likes to stick around or your car stinks like soccer practice, essential oils are rock stars when it comes to eliminating odors. The following oils are our top picks for getting rid of nasty smells. You can use them in your diffuser or DIY air fresheners.
Have a big project coming up? Dealing with reluctant homework-doers? Need to concentrate on a major goal? Find your focus with aromatherapy! The aromas of some essential oils can help create an environment that inspires you to get things done.
If your goals are total wellness and a more relaxed life, you probably have similar goals for your kids. Little ones can benefit from aromatherapy, but it’s a little different than aromatherapy for grownups. Before you get started, take some time to learn about the proper way to dilute essential oils for children and babies. Diffusing oils is pretty safe, but you’ll want to take some precautions when applying them topically.
Want to share aromatherapy with your furry, feathery, and scaly friends? You totally can! Before you begin, study how to safely use essential oils around animals, including the dos and don’ts for each species. Additionally, work with your veterinarian to get their advice on your pet’s needs. Once you’re ready, these essential oil blends are formulated especially for the animals in your life.
