Today is National Stress Awareness Day. The team at Farm to Aromatherapy wants to outline a few ways to use aromatherapy to help reduce stress. Aromatherapy is a wonderful tool to enhance your self-care practices.
Establishing Self-Care Routines
Aromatherapy can help you establish and adjust routines because fragrance and memory are linked. By connecting a specific fragrance to working, relaxing, and preparing for your day, you can denote a change in activity by changing the fragrance to help your body and mind change rhythm faster. The more repetition you get of connecting your routine to fragrance, the more connected that fragrance will be to the mood and routine you’re are trying to establish. (Read about some of the science behind it here).
Aromatherapy benefits of essential oils can help in deciding what essential oil or essential oil blend will be best for each part of your routine. Our Lemon, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Refresh are a great addition to your morning routine. Farm to Aromatherapy’s Focus essential oil blend could help you stay on track during your work day. Lavender, Relaxation, and Serenity are great fragrances to help you wind down at the end of the day. We have these essential oil infused fragrances available in candles, room mists, reed diffusers, wax melts and incense on Amazon. All of our products have the aromatherapy benefit list on the packaging or you can find it on our Aromatherapy Benefits page.
Establishing Self-Care Spaces
What atmosphere do you want to create in your self-care space? Farm to Aromatherapy has a variety of products which allows you to change up your fragrance delivery system, so your space is always smelling how you want it. A reed diffuser creates a consistent base fragrance, while essential oil mist diffusers and wax melts are more customizable. Candles, incense and our room sprays are great for a quick change in the mood of a room.
The Aromatherapy Benefits on our packaging and website can help you decide what fragrance will work best for the atmosphere you are trying to create. If you’re setting up a relaxation zone, a Lavender, Eucalyptus, Relaxation, or Serenity fragranced product would be your best choice. Eucalyptus and Lavender are classic spa fragrances. Farm to Aromatherapy's Focus fragrance will help keep you on track if you’re working from home. Keep this fragrance on your desk for the maximum aromatherapy benefit. For a cheerful and energizing hang out space, go with a Lemon, Peppermint, or Refresh fragranced products.
We hope you will consider making aromatherapy part of your self-care routine and self-care space. Read more about these concepts on our other blog posts: Setting Up Your Aromatherapy Space and Promoting Restfulness When Gaining an Hour of Sleep.
