Aromatherapy: Incense, Perfume, Essential Oil – Can it Improve Your Mood?

Like most people these days, I’ve also taken the dive into the world of aromatherapy.

Purchasing the 6-pack of essential oils, the oil diffuser and other various scents of incense; hoping my anxiety would improve.

The great part about essential oil is the vast variety of them and the longevity of the product. One small bottle can last you a very long time. (Long enough for you to be more than satisfied)

I use oils like eucalyptus and mint when I have a cold; they do an amazing job at opening my sinuses.

Lavender is really useful if you have trouble falling asleep or have insomnia.

I use tea tree and lemongrass oil to study sometimes. I personally find that they help me focus.

Though I have no legitimate medical research under my belt, I am a big supporter of placebos.

Largely, you are your own worst enemy and its true; the way you view things is altered by what you believe.

When growing up, you’re told to believe in yourself and as cheesy as it sounds, sometimes your mind is your biggest obstacle.

How many problems in the real world only exist within your head?

Sure, some people have actual diagnosed issues; real problems with brains, but for the majority of us, we are the only ones in our way.

So tell yourself you have the focus to complete your tasks.

Tell yourself you can fall asleep.

  1. Best line (for me): “I am a big supporter of placebos.” I don’t know it was meant to be a little tongue-in-cheek, but that’s how my mind heard it. Good post overall. Thanks 🙂
