Aromatherapy, The Smells of Nature.

Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural essential oils in combinations for different healing effects over ones well-being.  Using extracts from flowers, minerals, fruit, bark and wood, leaves, stems and many other plant life, aromatherapy is believed to stimulate our brains as well as our senses. We can use aromatherapy to soothe, relax, for pain, to excite, ground, and even as an aphrodisiac.

Like how leaving some lavender in your pillowcase can help soothe one to sleep, or how the smells of foods can make the mouth water. Smell can create physical reactions as well as emotional ones, and in our lives plays a part in meditation.

Every scent has a role to play whether we are aware of how it plays on ur souls or not. Lemon and Rose are scents of cleansing and rejuvenation. Together they uplift the spirit and help to eliminate heavy emotions. Patchouli is a healer for depression and fatigue. Like when you set foot in nature, it helps to release negative thoughts and energies, grounding from any anxieties you feel though out the day. Lavender is said to bring tranquility & peace at home, as well as attracts love. Bergamot Essential Oil may be helpful in use during periods of depression, sadness or grief, and it is known for its ability to help combat oily skin and acne. With both medical and metaphysical uses, essential oils can aid in our lives in many ways. b7bd8b8898a45ea5fe07360c53c28f43

We’ve studied the effects of certain smells and how they play on our personal emotions in order to develop our cute little charm aromatherapy necklace with our personal mixture of essential oils. We’ve created a scent that not only soothes and brightens, but grounds us with a very nice earthy scent. With hints of Lemon, Rose, and Patchouli, we drip about 2-3 drops onto the coloured felt within the cage. The heat of our hearts warms the oils throughout the day, giving off its lovely scent. Breathe deep in times of stress, the light scent will carry you in those moments and lift you up with scents of pleasure.
