How Aromatherapy can help you to keep a chill vibe around the house this year

by Allison Harvey

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.
