What Is Aromatherapy? The Complete Guide

Aromatherapy is a natural way to wellness for the body and mind. Aromatherapy practitioners use essential oils to benefit from the earth's rich resources. Essential oils are named for the essence of the cells that give fragrance to aromatic plants, fruits, flowers, and more.    

Aromatherapy works by activating your smell receptors which send messages to your brain. From there, different parts of your body can release chemicals that aid in physical and mental pain relief and healing. With essential oils, you can find relief from anxiety, congestion, and headaches.   

At BluZen, we offer essential oils and air diffusers so you can enjoy the many benefits of aromatherapy. Read on to learn about three significant benefits of essential oils, which essential oils can help with which type of pain relief, and what kind of air diffuser to look for.

Essential Oils for Anxiety

Anxiety disorders currently affect 19.1% of U.S. adults, and the National Institute of Mental Health estimates that 31.1% of U.S. adults will experience an anxiety disorder in their lives. Even if you don’t currently have an anxiety disorder, you may occasionally experience symptoms of anxiety, which can be challenging to manage.

What can you do to introduce more peace in your life in a scientifically proven way? That’s where essential oils come in.

Essential oils can release endorphins that help you feel calmer and happier. Certain essential oils such as lavender and chamomile have been shown to reduce anxiety and increase calmness

Essential Oils for Congestion

Being congested can be frustrating and painful, but essential oils for congestion are here to help. Many essential oils, such as eucalyptus, have been shown to ease congestion symptoms and other common cold symptoms. Essential oils can act as anti-inflammatory agents and boost your immune system.

Essential Oils for Headaches

Tension-type headaches are bad news. They’re painful and they’re the most common type of headache. Stress is the most common trigger for tension-type headaches, which can be hard to control. 

The good news is that essential oils for headaches can help with both stress and headaches! As we talked about earlier, essential oils can reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety. And essential oils, specifically peppermint essential oils, are a standard, proven treatment for tension-type headaches. If you get migraines, you may want to try lavender essential oil, which is shown to be an effective migraine treatment. Your essential oils can be there for you when you’re in pain and need a little extra help to get through the day. You can create a soothing and peaceful atmosphere in your home. Let aromatherapy take care of you!
