There are many reasons to use aromatherapy for stress management. But most of all, this type of relaxation technique can be easy and inexpensive.
People who are looking for ways to manage stress are turning more and more to aromatherapy... and it's no surprise because it's based on hundreds of thousands of years research, use, and improved technology. And it's effective.
This is the act of using natural essential oils to achieve emotional as well as physical health benefits. It is the smell, or the aroma, of these essential oils that invoke an emotional and physical response.
When purchasing products, you'll want to be sure you get natural products made from essential oils. A lot of candles and scents may smell good... but will have unnecessary chemicals, and are not made with true essential oils. So take a moment to read the labels.
For the most part, each individual will have a different and personal response to different types of aromas, however, there are specific types of essential oils that are known for achieving certain responses. For example, Lavender is known for being a relaxing scent. It can help greatly with stress and anxiety. While Peppermint, on the other hand, is frequently used to awaken your senses and make you feel more alert.
Using aromatherapy for stress has helped me immensely... and it's such an easy technique that I use it almost every day. In my office at work, I keep a reed diffuser filled with essential oils that are meant to create a calm atmosphere. The great thing about using a reed diffuser is that there is no flame. Many offices do not allow candles or incense to be lit because of the potential fire hazard.
So not only does the scent help to keep me calm and relaxed at work, my co-workers love visiting my office as well... because it's the best smelling office in the building!
They are becoming a very popular form of aromatherapy and easier to find almost anywhere that candles are sold. A reed diffuser is a bottle filled with an essential oil which contains reed sticks. These sticks sit inside of the oil on one end and soak the oil up. They then stick out of the top and diffuse the smell throughout the room... and they are quite nice looking! Once the oil is gone, time to replace the bottle... they will usually last at least a month depending on the kind you buy.
Besides reed diffusers and candles, there are many different ways to get a good dose of aromatherapy. This type of relaxation technique has become so popular that it's easy to find what you need without venturing far from home.
