Have you ever wished you could just be happy like all the time? OK its not always easy especially when something or someone pisses you off but it IS possible to get a boost of those much needed happy vibes when you need them by using essential oils.
Perhaps you’ve been finding it hard to get to sleep or you sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and find it hard to get back to sleep.
It turns out there’s a blend for that!
How Essential Oils Work?
When we inhale essential oils, our olfactory system is stimulated which is linked to the deepest part of the brain. This sends messages through the nervous system to the limbic system which controls your emotions and memory.
Essential oils can trigger happy, calming and soothing effects, depending on which ones you choose.
In Asia essential oils such as Lemon and Lime are used in places of work to boost productivity and in the west we use eucalyptus as a decongestant to help us breath better.
Our sense of smell is so powerful that it can trigger memories in an instant which Can take you back to good or bad times in your life. You know like your ex’s aftershave (thought we’d give you the bad times first) or the smell of the perfume you used to wear at collage or uni (some of the best times of your life).
Think how walking into a bakery makes you feel when you smell freshly baked bread or when you’ve used a lemon scented cleaning spray to clean your house.
Using the right pure essential oils can give you what it takes to supercharge your mood.
If its sleep you need, an oil blend to help you sleep can get you a good nights kip so you can feel refreshed in the morning. If its uplifting you need, then an energising blend can give you a boost and if you are feeling congested, there is nothing like being able to breath properly to make you feel better.
When all the issues such as lack of sleep, lethargy, unease, the feeling of congestion are all taken care of, we feel more elevated, energised, confident, alert and happier so even when someone or something tries to bring you down, it doesn’t happen so easily.
