Aromatherapy Is Life

Essential oils can be soothing, uplifting, and even healing when you incorporate them into your lifestyle. Aromatherapy is an alternative medicine that has been around for thousands of years. There are countless health benefits that encourage overall balance and well-being for your mind, body and spirit.

Some benefits of aromatherapy include its ability to relieve anxiety and depression, boost energy levels and encourage healing while reducing pain. It's also known to help with headaches, sleep quality and so much more... What more could you ask for, right?

The most common and popular use of aromatherapy is for stress relief. At Body Shoppe Spa & Salon, our massages include your choice of lavender or peppermint. This truly adds to your experience. With every deep breath in, your stress and tension begins to melt away.

Second, to stress relief, aromatherapy is very commonly used to reduce feelings of depression and anxiety. Peppermint, chamomile, lavender, and jasmine are great options to help lift your spirits.

Life is hectic sometimes. In today's fast-paced world, it's important to make time for yourself. You spend out a lot of energy everyday, running from one thing to the next. Whether your a busy Mom, a top Executive, or anywhere in between, it's important that you replenish what you've given away throughout the day. So, find a quiet place and steal a moment for yourself. Because you deserve it.

Essential oils are also great to use at home when you've had a hard day. Just dab a few drops of your favorite essential oil into your palms and rub them together. Close your eyes and take a deep breath in through your nose and exhale through your mouth. Repeat that a few times. One of the most important factors here though, is your intention to relax. You've purposely set aside this time for yourself. Practice this ritual everyday for a week. You will surely begin to look forward to it. This not only helps you feel better and more relaxed but it also helps to improve your overall mood & state-of-mind. Everyone needs "ME" time. Other home remedies for stress relief include practicing breathing exercises, yoga, workouts and eating healthy. You could even make the most of your commute by turning on some good tunes, heated seats if you have them and take a few deep breaths of your favorite essential oil. But remember your intention.

At Body Shoppe Spa & Salon, we want to make sure you not only look your best but you FEEL your very best too. So, we encourage you to make time for yourself. Focus on the intention of relaxing your mind and body. Soon you will feel your spirits lifting, your stress dissolving and your overall mood improved.
