Soothe Your Senses with Aromatherapy


Have you ever heard someone say, “stop and smell the roses”? This may be very good advice. Aromatherapy may help calm your nerves and improve your well-being.

Aromatherapy uses essential oils from plants and flowers. The aroma of these oils may affect parts of the brain that control your emotions. Essential oils may help you feel relaxed, safe, alert, or more energized.

Aromatherapy may also help in the treatment of:

• Muscle pain
• Anxiety and depression
• Nausea
• Skin disorders

So, the next time you pass a bunch of roses, stop and smell. You may find just yourself more relaxed.

Talk to your doctor if you are pregnant or have certain health conditions. Some oils may not be safe for you.
