Best Aromatherapy Products for Relaxation
Whether you are working from home or in the office, are a full time homemaker, a student, or anything in between, it is so important to separate work and relaxation. We’re talking about setting aside specific amounts of time to focus on yourself–aka self-care. We also know that sometimes the days go by way too fast and that is not always possible. Luckily, we have incorporated that thought into our aromatherapy products so you can take relaxation with you, wherever you are. Bring SIMPURE aromatherapy products to the gym, your shower, onto your yoga mat, your linens, and anywhere else you may go.
What is Aromatherapy Used For?
Aromatherapy is a natural and holistic treatment method that enhances the body and mind by use of plant-extracted essential oils. This form of healing has been used for centuries and is still used today for many reasons, including:
- Calming Effect
- Pain Management
- Immunity Boosts
Common Essential Oils Used for Relaxation and Stress
As long as essential oils are being used properly, the benefits can be life changing. *We do not recommend or encourage consumption of our products, they are for topical use only.*
Essential oils are plant extracts that are retrieved from pressing or steaming different parts of plants such as the leaves, stems, bark, or fruit, and collecting the oils that are produced.
Always ensure that your essential oils are pure and not synthetic.
Here is a list of our favorite oils, commonly used in our products, and what they can do for you:
Lavender oil was discovered over 2,500 years ago and is one of the most commonly used essential oils in the world today. It is used to promote good sleep and is known for its calming properties. It also can help protect against free radicals, support brain function, and relieve pain.
Citrus oil not only smells amazing, but is amazing for you. Citrus oil can include orange, lemon, grapefruit, blood orange, and bergamot among many others. We use citrus oils as mood boosters, irritability soothers, and to support respiratory health.
Patchouli gives off an aroma that is spicy, woodsy, and sweet. This oil is a great anti-inflammatory, pain reliever, and sleep aid.
Jasmine has been used in parts of Asia for centuries as a natural anxiety and insomnia reliever. It is still commonly used for that, as well as increasing alertness and acting as a remedy for cramps related to menstruation.
Not only is vanilla one of the most widely used scents in the world, it also is used for its beneficial effects. Vanilla is extremely relaxing, tranquilizing, and can reduce anxiety. It can also ease headaches and muscle tension.
Eucalyptus oil is another common scent that you have likely used in your regimen. This popular oil is used to ease cold symptoms, repel bugs, and ease joint pain.
Peppermint oil has been widely used for thousands of years in areas like Greece, Egypt, and Rome, due to its health purposes. It is still used today for its increasing holistic effects such as headaches, stress relief, sinus infections, and joint pain.
