Absolutely! Aromatherapy uses natural oils from plants to enhance your mood, help you sleep, and fight the symptoms of a common cold. All without using chemicals and prescription drugs.

 

When did it start? Aromatherapy and the use of natural remedies have been around since 3,500 BC and used to cure many illnesses and injuries. They believed that these oils worked with magic to heal and bring good fortune.

 

Essential oils have been used in many ways to enhance the body’s health. Using the oils in massages, adding a few drops to your evening bath, or burning them over a candle, the uses are endless.

So what can they improve? The five main oils that most people have heard of are Lavender, Peppermint, Rosemary, Tea Tree and Eucalyptus; All harnessing their own unique power.

 

Lavender is a natural sleep aid that calms the mind and body, drifting you into a more natural sleep. The Dream Away Oil will help you to unwind and relax the body aiding a peaceful night’s sleep.

 

Peppermint is an instant pick-me-up without the need to reach for caffeine; peppermint is also great for aiding digestion. Try Free Your Mind, combing Eucalyptus and Peppermint to clear your head and refresh your mind.
