A Guide to Aromatherapy

Aromatherapy involves using concentrated essential oils along with other aromatic elements for therapeutic benefit. This traditional practice is most commonly used to create a sense of balance and harmony around the home with the aim of improving well-being.

Essential oils are extracted from the flowers, leaves and roots of particular plants. Unique aromatic compounds give each essential oil its characteristic scent. Essential oils are most commonly inhaled through various methods and each aroma can help stimulate our limbic systems - the part of the brain that affects our emotions and behaviours - along with some unconscious physiological functions such as breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. There are over 90 types of essential oils each with their own fragrance and potential health benefits. Below are 10 of the most popular essential oils along with their associated health benefits.

  • Bergamot - used to reduce stress and improve skin conditions

  • Chamomile - used to improve mood and relaxation

  • Jasmine - used to help with depression and childbirth

  • Lavender - used to relieve stress

  • Lemon - used to aid digestion, mood and headaches

  • Peppermint - used to boost energy and aid digestion

  • Rose - used to improve mood and reduce anxiety

  • Sandalwood - used to calm nerves and help with focus

  • Tea Tree - used to fight infection and boost immunity
