It’s a new year! Time to re-centre, re-focus and set some goals for the next 12 months. For some of us, this might mean moving on from the challenges on the past year – when anxieties around health, wellness and a global pandemic occasionally crept their way in.
So – how to get this year off to a ‘chill’ start? A natural way of creating an environment that promotes positive energy is by using essential oils.
Aromatherapy is a holistic health practice that’s been used for thousands of years to boost the mood and improve wellbeing. Using these aromatic plant and flower extracts around the home can play a huge part in helping you calm both the body and mind.
Creating daily rituals that inject peace and calm into your life can be as easy as taking 5 minutes to focus on your breath as you diffuse your favourite essential oil before your day really kicks into gear.
How to use essential oils?
Diffusion is one of the easiest ways to use essential oils at home. The first step is to select your diffuser – you can choose from a traditional ceramic burner with candle or an ultrasonic diffuser – then choose an essential oil, or a blend of oils.
Different botanicals have different benefits but if your aim is to create an environment of peace, tranquillity and calm, consider the below Natio Essential Oils:
Lavender – associated with relaxation and balancing the mind
Orange – great for meditation – known for energising the spirit
Patchouli – often used to calm and ground a busy mind
Lemon – often used to energise the spirit
Bergamot – a delicate floral aroma, associated with balancing body, mind and spirit
Oils can be used individually or blended together (a few drops of each in your diffuser) to create a signature scent.
Or take the guesswork out of mixing oils by selecting one of Natio’s pre-mixed Essential Oil Blends. There is a specialised Calm Essential Oil Blend, a Relax blend, or Focus On Stress Pure Essential Oil Blend to help you create a peaceful atmosphere, anytime, anywhere.
For a focused, calm and ‘zen’ 2022 – incorporate Aromatherapy into your everyday routine. Your spirit and soul will thank you for it.
