It is bound to happen in our modern age of stress - rushing here and there, poor eating choices (because we are so busy), exposure to Toxins, restriction in our movements as we are crammed into tiny office spaces with little privacy and less exercise. One day you wake up and you find yourself fatigued and you just don’t seem to have any energy. You think to yourself, “How can I deal with this before I get sick?” This is where alternatives come into play; one of the best being aromatherapy.
Even if your nose refuses to register the scent of anything at all, worry not! Essential oils can help you without your nose even knowing. The choice of application is up to you. A warm bath using essential oils and Epsom salts can help on many levels. The oils can (depending on the ones you choose) help to decongest, relax, calm Headaches, loosen phlegm and the list goes on! We have found the salts help to relieve muscular pain and are very soothing to the skin. Essential oils can also be used via direct inhalation (on a tissue or in a bowl of steaming water over which you tent your head with a towel), massage (combined with Carrier Oil), or even taken into the shower on a washcloth for the steam to waft the molecules around.
