Revitalise Yourself With Aromatherapy

February 12, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

Are you tired, working hard and all you want to do is go home and relax?

For some of us it isn't always possible to go home from work and put our feet up and chill out! Aromatherapy and the use of essential oils has the ability to promote motivation, energy, strength, endurance and much more.

Here are some simple and effective ways in which to use aromatherapy for many and varied conditions. You can use inhalations, room sprays, bathing and your aromatherapy burner or diffuser.

When you get home take a mini break, this need only be 10-15 minutes. Choose some essential oils to inhale or diffuse. Sit in a comfortable chair and take some slow deep breaths. Breath in the essential oil aroma, feel your body beginning to relax and let go. Feel the tension from the day slip away and out of your body. Continue to breath slowly and stay with this for as long as you feel the need to. By doing this exercise you will begin to feel in harmony with your mind, body and soul and you will feel your energy returning. If you are unable to sit for any length of time you can lay down to do this exercise. Another way to experience relaxation with essential oils is to have a bath or foot bath, use dry inhalations or use aromatherapy room and body sprays.

When using essential oils to assist with raising your energy, relax or uplift your emotions one thing to take into account is to choose your favourite essential oils. As soon as you smell an aroma that you love, you are immediately transported to a place that no one can take away from you. Often pleasant and past memories or experiences will be evoked. You will naturally start to release tension and feel better.

I highly recommend you choose essential oils that resonate with you personally as this will give you the desired results faster. Below I have made a few suggestions from my own personal experience. Remember you can choose one essential oil or make a blend from three. It is up to you, your nose knows best and your body will tell you.


Add 3 drops each Neroli, Rose and Jasmine or use them on their own.

Add 3 drops of Frankincense and Rose, 2 drops of Champa.

One of my all time favourite bath blends for relaxing is 2 drops of Vetiver and 3 drops of Rosewood or Geranium.

Room spray - add the following recipes to 100 ml of filtered or floral water.

I tend to use a lot of citrus essential oils in room sprays as they are uplifting to the emotions, energising and evoke a strong sense of happiness!

Mandarin, Bergamot, Grapefruit 10 drops each, with 2-3 drops of Geranium.

Sweet Orange, Lemon, 10 drops each, with 5 drops Sandalwood and 2 drops Peru Balsam.


Once again I personally love to use citrus essential oils, Lime, Grapefruit and Cardamom or Lemon Myrtle, Sweet Orange and Bergamot.

The combinations are endless; have fun, play and be creative, I promise you will fall in love with aromatherapy to improve your emotional, physical and spiritual being.
