Relaxing Essential Oils
Therapeutic treatments using essential oils have a history dating back 6,000 years. The ancient Greeks and Romans were aware of the healing properties of using aromatherapy but it wasn’t until the turn of the century that the modern aromatherapy movement was born. This sleep-inducing formula contains three key essential oils designed to help you relax deeply - vetivert, camomile and sandalwood, as well as earthy patchouli oil.
Vetiver oil is derived from the grassy vetiver plant, which grows primarily in India. It is famed for its musky, earthy scent and soothing sedative properties. It is also rich in antioxidants and helps to calm nervous conditions and maintain good nerve health. Sandalwood is another deeply scented oil, deriving from the sap of the sandalwood tree. Throughout history it has been highly valued for its calming properties, and when paired with other scents helps aromas linger for longer. Perhaps the most famous of soothing herbs, camomile was prized by the Ancient Egyptians for its healing properties. As well as aiding digestion, camomile has also been linked to relieving depression thanks to its ability to lift the spirits. Another essential oil used as an antidepressant is patchouli. By inhaling the musky aroma it stimulates the production of pleasure hormones dopamine and serotonin, allowing feelings of anxiousness and stress to drift away.
Aiding a More Restful Sleep
Environmental factors such as visual overstimulation, stress, and the fast pace of modern life can all contribute to problems drifting off and staying asleep. While aromatherapy cannot cure the root cause of insomnia, taking a few steps towards a calmer bedtime can aid a more restful and deep sleep.
Take a relaxing bath with Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath & Shower Oil an hour before bed - warm water can stimulate blood circulation and make it difficult to drift off, so avoid bath time immediately before turning in for the night. Avoid stimulation before going to sleep too; turn off the TV and your mobile phone a good hour before bed, and allow yourself to relax and distance yourself from the stresses of the day.
