Plant Therapy Essential oils are the perfect way to help support an effective self-care and relaxation routine! Oils can help soothe nerves, help create feelings of calm, clarity, and relaxation.
How Essential Oils Work to Promote a Relaxed State of Mind
Essential oils are made up of aromatic molecules that can pass through the blood/brain barrier. This ability to reach the brain directly allows them to have a positive effect on the parts of our brain that control feelings of worry
In fact, a study by a German University found that essential oils could have many direct biological effects on things like blood pressure, the breath, immune function, heart rate and stress levels.
Essential oils can be both stimulating and calming, with some oils affecting people differently depending on what they need at the moment. This means that a stressed person might feel calm after using a particular essential oil that has an uplifting effect on an individual who feels tired . In fact, some essential oils are called “adaptogens” because of their capacity to adapt to the needs of the user. Amazing!
