‘I think a fragrance is all about sensations and imagery, and can evoke visions, feelings and thoughts.’-Shakira
Have you ever had an essential oil that made you travel instantly to a world of unicorns? Or has a splash of fragrance made you feel fresh and lively instantaneously? Wondering how this happens? Well, these scents can shape our moods and transform the dull days into brighter ones in three ways:
1. Lowers Stress Levels
In this fast-paced world of ours, stress has become an inevitable part life, affecting our body, mind and soul. While we may not be able to avoid it , we can definitely manage it by incorporating healthy habits, such as going out for a walk and eating better, into our daily routine. Getting a whiff of lemon, mango or lavender essences can also do wonders to instantly weed out all the tension that your mind and body holds. These uplifting fragrances have also been proven to minimise insomnia and aid in improving overall health.
2. Energises You Instantly
Have you relied on your cup of coffee for that push of energy on a Monday morning? Well it’s time to sniff on some all- natural fragrances for your daily dose of freshness. Simply inhaling a scent containing Peppermint can restore your energy levels while inducing a feeling of confidence and enthusiasm. Peppermint boosts the immune system due its antibacterial and antifungal properties, keeping germs far away. At last, Monday blues won’t bother you again and you’ll be able to start your week with a kick.
3. Fosters Restful Sleep
Had a stressful day? Worry not. It will only take a few whiffs of essential oils to calm you down and unwind you from a long day. Lavender and Rose are known to help release sleep-inducing hormones in our bodies when it’s time to nod off, thus providing us with a quality night’s sleep. Just add a few drops to your diffuser or spray on a natural fragrance that contains these oils, and fall into a deep slumber. A restful sleep will do wonders for your state of mind and your ability to tackle life's challenges.
