The Ancient Wisdom of Aromatherapy
One of the fastest ways to improve your mood and elevate your senses is through aromatherapy. Aromatherapy refers to the use of essential oils that are extracted from plants and natural resources. I began experimenting with essential oils when I lived in Atlanta in the mid-90s. Essential oils that came in small bottles that I could place in a round clay tray that sat on top of a lightbulb inside of a regular table lamp. It was easy to use, a few drops of eucalyptus oil and turning on the lamp allowed me to smell this incredibly wonderful natural scent that helped me relax. There were others that I used to invigorate, calm and wake up. But each one gave me a different vibe. And I loved it.
Essential oils can be used for a wide variety of purposes. Dating back to ancient times, they have been known to treat medical conditions or alleviate psychological ailments. Aromatherapy can also be used simply for pleasure, to help improve your mood or to reduce your stress. That was how I got started. Aromatherapy has the power to affect both your physical and mental state. But there is still more, as I have discovered. Elevation of mood helps clear a path to meditation and prayer. And that is how I connect to Spirit.
The practice of aromatherapy has many powerful benefits. They have been proven effective in treating both serious and minor ailments. Even when aromatherapy cannot provide a cure, it can improve an individual’s mood. And mood can change a lot in a person's life. It opens doorways to the past and the present. Like music, its sensory use can be used to assist the release of emotion and clear past unstuck energy blocks. The essential oils of aromatherapy have been used for hundreds of years in herbal medicine, disease prevention, and in religious ceremonies.
Using aromatherapy for your benefit is what really matters. I love how it can uplift the energy in my home. But what are the smells that you find best suits you? And what exactly improves your mood? The easiest way is to find a good diffuser and try out what makes you the happiest. And you don't have to use traditional essential oils. You can try different scent packs of citrus, woods, baked goods or oceanic scents. I have a link in this article for you to try. It is my personal aromatherapy shop that I use. And I want you to comment on what you feel when you try out these warmers and diffusers. I personally love the warmers that are like small table lamps. And the scents that are now my favorite, are many, so I encourage you to try something different each time. But most importantly, look for something that makes you feel happy. Something that cheers your soul to look at and a scent to have wafting through your home. And see what it does to clear the energy of the room and gives you more peace and balance.
Using aromatherapy for yoga, massage, relaxation at night before you fall asleep, are just a few of the everyday uses. Removing negative energy and bringing in a natural remedy for emotional wellness and balance is a happy benefit.
