Before modern medicine took over, aromatherapy was the main way that many cultures healed illnesses. With our modern technology and science, we can better understand how this works and why it should still be used. Using aromatherapy is a great way to alleviate symptoms and prevent illnesses from taking root. The healing properties of uplifting essential oils cannot be denied.
Have you ever wondered why most skincare and bath formulas smell good? It’s because scents help to heal and relax us. You’re much likelier to leave the shower in a good mood if you used a lavender scented soap than if you used an unscented one. This is the same reason why people love taking bubble baths. The primary appeal of a bubble bath is the relaxing scent and if it’s a good bubble bath it will also help to soothe and moisturize the skin. Unfortunately, most commercial skincare and bath formulas are full of harmful chemicals. In order to get the same benefits without any of the health risks that come with the many chemicals that most of these formulas contain you can create your own natural formulas.
It’s very easy to do. If you want to add it to your bath, you can use an essential oil that is safe for the skin along with rosewater. The essential oil will relax and soothe your mind while the rosewater is great for soothing sensitive skin. In fact, you can use rosewater as a toner all over your body once you get out of the bath as well.
If you just want the benefits of aromatherapy without all the fuss, all you need to do is run a basin full of hot water and add a few drops of your oil. The scent will spread throughout the room.
