Using Aromatherapy to Reduce Anxiety and Depression

Are you feeling worried or stressed?

Does your Immune system need upkeep?

Do you have muscle soreness or discomfort?

Different circumstances in our daily lives can have an impact on our overall wellbeing. You could be dealing with a child who needs individual care, a friend who requires support, a spouse with stress from work, or a teenager worn out from playing sport.

Our sense of smell has a powerful physiological, mental and emotional response to our being.

Aromatherapy can be used to affect the smell receptors that have a direct link to the limbic system through the olfactory nerve, which is part of the brain. This can support a number of functions such as emotions, behaviour and memory, hence helping reduce stress, anxiety, and depression and also help the immune system to support overall health.

By placing a couple of drops in your hand and then cupping your hand around your nose and breathing in deeply could reduce the feeling of being overwhelmed or stressed. You could also place a few drops on a cotton ball and place it in the vents of your car, mix a spray bottle with a blend of oils and water to mist over furniture and carpet, or use it in a diffuser to bring a peaceful nights sleep.

Bringing essential oils into your daily routine can assist in creating an uplifting and focused lifestyle that can be used as a daily maintenance routine.

Another way to maintain a healthy lifestyle that can assist you in coping with anxiety and depression is to have an Aroma Touch Massage with Sue.

This massage technique has a clinical approach to applying essential oils along the energy pathways called meridians and visceral contact points of the back and feet to help balance the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems of the body.  Using 8 different essential oils to support the immune system, help with muscle pain, reduce stress, uplift and bring overall balance and wellbeing back.

This is a great monthly maintenance routine to introduce into your lifestyle. The benefits far out-weigh the problems caused by feeling overwhelmed and stressed in your daily life. By changing a small part of your routine and giving back to yourself, not only assists you but also your family members to manage and feel supported by you more.

With a special running for the next two weeks, you can receive a $20 discount, however you mention this offer when booking in for the Monthly Maintenance by the 14th of December 2018.
