Scent is one of our most powerful human senses. Not only can certain smells evoke a range of feelings and memories, research shows that specific scents also have the ability to influence our physical health—by reducing stress, boosting mood, and promoting better sleep.
No surprise then that aromatherapy—aka essential oil therapy—is all the rage with both wellness and health experts alike. The centuries-old practice employs plant-based essential oils to naturally treat both physical and emotional ailments, such as stress, fatigue and high blood pressure.
For example, the smell of lavender is clinically proven to slow down the nervous system, so a simple sniff of it can instantly reduce stress and irritability. While a strong whiff of peppermint is said to have the power to relieve tension headaches and indigestion, and improve your quality of sleep.
That’s why aromatherapy enthusiasts say utilizing essential oils at home, whether through room sprays, diffusers, or candles, can make a big difference in how you feel every day.
