If you have ever visited gardens and smelled the natural fragrance of exotic flowers, you must have noticed that a fresh breeze of new energy has replaced the bad feelings inside you. Some people also habitually visit green and clean areas to treat their stress and depression. Aromatherapy oils work the same as these natural activities do.
What Is Aromatherapy?
Have you ever heard about “laughter therapy”? This is a unique therapy in which a person or group laughs at their best without reason. This gives them a wave of fresh energy and takes away the negative energy, slowly driving them crazy.
Aromatherapy works similarly. People use fragrance or aroma in this therapy to treat their mood swings, depression, stress, or tension. Some people even treat their long-term illnesses or traumas with an effective method called aromatherapy.
How and Where to Use Aromatherapy Oils?
There are different methods that you can adopt for using aromatherapy oils. Some of the most common ways are mentioned below.
1. Oil Diffusers
Oil diffusers are the latest trend in aromatherapy. Jasmine essential oils and other oils like lavender and lemongrass are the scented oils for diffusers that are most commonly used for aromatherapy.
Humidifiers are somewhat similar to oil diffusers. You can use natural essential oils in humidifiers, which will spread the fumes of crucial oil in the surrounding air. People also use humidifiers and oil diffusers in vehicles, mostly portable and electrically powered.
3. Soaps and shampoos
Another common method for getting the benefits of essential oils and aromatherapy is using them in soaps and shampoos. The essential oils are mixed with the soap and shampoo used in your routine. This form of usage in body wash products is highly beneficial, but it is advised to consult your physician or dermatologist first.
4. Bottle spray
The essential oils are also used in bottles to be sprayed. People use sprays of essential oils, mostly diluted, just like deodorants or air fresheners. You can also control the release of oil quantities because you can release the amount of spray as per your desire.
5. Use with skin moisturizers
The natural oils that are helpful for the skin are also used with skin moisturizers or creams after mixing them with moisturizers, just like incorporating them with soaps and shampoos. Many people use this method to experience multiple skin benefits.
6. Dilute in a bathtub
The essential oils are also used in diluted forms, especially with water. One of the most common methods is to dilute the oil with water in a bathtub. Using your favourite aromatherapy oils, you will feel ultimate freshness after this aromatherapy bath.
7. Oil burners
Last but not least is the widely used method of oil burners. This traditional method is one of the easiest methods to diffuse oil without a unique diffuser or humidifier. The oil burners are most commonly made of ceramic and burnt with a light fire on the bottom.
All of the uses mentioned above of aromatherapy oils are used for gaining multiple and long-term health benefits. These benefits include physical, mental, and emotional well-being.
