Why Aromatherapy Is Great For Summer

Aromatherapy is a popular holistic healing modality that uses essential oils to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

The use of essential oils and aromatherapy dates back thousands of years. Aromatherapists still use them today for their many benefits.

Essential oils are extracted from herbs, fruits, and plants and contain the plant’s natural scent and therapeutic properties. Essential oil can be considered the essence of a plant.

When inhaled, these compounds can affect the limbic system, which is responsible for controlling our emotions. This is why aromatherapy is often used as a natural way to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression.

The Many Uses Of Essential Oils

You can also use aromatherapy and essential oil to improve focus and concentration, boost energy levels, promote restful sleep, relieve pain, and fight infection.

In addition, essential oils can be used to improve your skin and hair health, and they can even be used as all-natural insect repellents! With so many benefits, it’s no wonder that aromatherapy is such a popular choice for summertime wellness.

Tips On Using Essential Oils

There are a few things you should know if you are just getting into using and diffusing essential oils this summer.

When using essential oils topically, it’s important to never apply undiluted essential oils directly to your skin. Many of these oils are very strong when undilated and cause rashes and irritation if not blended properly with carrier oils.

As with many things in life, use essential oil diffuser blends in moderation. We recommend using your diffuser a few times a week when you need a moment to rest, refresh, and recharge during the summer heat.
