A relaxing moment is enhanced by using aromatherapy

People often use essential oils like lavender or jasmine to fill their homes with a pleasing scent, but they might not realize the healing properties that these fragrant oils can have. Aromatherapy oils can lift your mood and facilitate good health. Here are seven moods which can be changed or improved using aromatherapy, and the recommended oil for each mood.


Calm

Lavender is a great aromatherapy treatment for lowering stress levels. This fragrant flower promotes a calm state of mind and is great to use when you feel overwhelmed with work or life. You can use lavender in a diffuser by mixing a few drops of essential oil with some filtered water.


Sleepy

When you're lacking your normal get-up-and-go mindset — like on Monday mornings — put a few drops of rosemary oil into a spray bottle and spritz it around the room. The oils stimulate your muscles and enhance clarity of mind so you can get through the day feeling wide awake. 


Stressed

Stress breaks down your immune system, which can often lead to illness. The lemon oil leaves a sunny citrus scent, relieves stress, and prevents harmful bacteria from invading your body. Lemon oil can keep you feeling healthy and relaxed. A psychic chat online can help you find the main cause of long-term stress.


Happy

When you have days where things just aren't looking up — from a bad break-up to a rough work day — add some jasmine oil to a hot bath when you get home. The fragrant oil from this night-blooming flower helps bring your confidence and energy levels up, and the bonus hot bath helps you relax.


Sensual

You and your partner want to get in the mood, but need a little help? Add a few drops of essential oil on your wrists. Sandalwood works wonders for the male libido, while rose oil should do the trick if you're a woman. These scents give your brain increased feelings of sensuality and romance.


Anxious

Just like stress, being anxious all the time is a problem for your body. You heart rate is faster and it leads to health problems down the road. Try using petitgrain oil in a diffuser in a place where you have the most anxiety to bring it down and give your mood an uplifting boost. You might need to talk to a psychic network if there are anxiety issues this soothing oil can't help with.


Focused

A project that takes days or weeks to finish can leave you feeling distant and downtrodden. Get focused by taking a cotton ball and adding a few drops of cinnamon oil to it when you feel distracted. Cinnamon is a natural stimulant that keeps you focused on finishing your work with each whiff.


Using aromatherapy to improve your mood is a healthy alternative to traditional remedies. The natural oils stimulate parts of your brain to help you be happier, calmer, and even more productive. Give aromatherapy a try to see improvement in your moods.
