Essential oils have incredible benefits, and Aromatherapy is the ancient practice of natural distillation of essential oils from plants to harmonize, balance and help the overall well-being of a person in body, soul and spirit.
Winter often leaves behind a host of microbes lingering in the air and on surfaces, so spring cleaning is definitely essential. Why not go a step beyond the traditional dusting and actually detox your home this season?
Thankfully, this doesn’t have to mean scrubbing your counters, floors, and furniture with questionable chemicals. Instead, you can bliss out your home with essential oils that deodorize and fight against mold, bacteria, fungus, and viruses.
In the entrance of your home, alongside your welcome mat, a fragrant essential oil can encourage visitors to enter with calm and ease. For this area, experts recommend opting for an essential oil that’s been shown to reduce anxiety, such as orange or cinnamon. Orange essential oil is an emotionally uplifting oil.
The major chemical constituent is limonene, which has been shown to reduce anxiety, lower heart rate, and ease stress. Another favorite fragrance to use in the home is cinnamon, a classic scent that recalls memories of baking and childhood. Cinnamon signals ‘fun’ to our memory centers and is a great way to welcome a guest.
