Aromatherapy works by stimulating your sense of smell. The nerves in your nose then generate signals to your brain, which triggers the release of feel-good chemicals, such as serotonin and dopamine.
Many research studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of essential oils in relieving symptoms of anxiety, insomnia and depression.
Various oils can relieve stress in different ways. For instance, citrus scents like bergamot orange and lemon have been shown to reduce anxiety and clear the mind. Lavender is one of the most famous oils used for relaxation and in particular sleep. Chamomile is another scent that promotes calm, and it is often used in massage for this reason. Frankincense can decrease cortisol levels and lesson symptoms of depression. Ylang Ylang also has proven calming effects. Many of the oil blends available from the Calm Store, include these scents.
A safe and effective way to experience the benefits of essential oils, is through the use of a diffuser, or by applying a roll on blend.
