aromatherapy for stress
No matter where you work, you know how stressful the office can be!  Phones that never stop ringing, bosses that never stop criticizing, and deadlines that never seem to be long enough turn your workplace into a haven for stress.

Despite what you might think, though, stress isn’t “all in your head”.  In addition to frustration and feeling like you’re in a pressure cooker, stress can actually cause physical problems, too, like fatigue, headaches, and sore muscles.

So, how do you stop the stress at work from taking over your entire life?

With the right aromatherapy regimen!

As long as you’ve got the right products, you can stop stress before it starts.  OK, so aromatherapy may not get rid of that overbearing boss you hate, but it can help you deal with him a whole lot better.  And, because it’s so easy to take a quick sniff or spray an oil mixture into the air at your desk, you won’t have to sacrifice productivity for sanity!

How exactly will aromatherapy combat mental stress?

aromatherapy for lack of energy
If you constantly roll out of bed feeling tired, sluggish, and wondering how you’re going to deal with yet another day at the office, two spritzes of Alerta Body Mist in your face will work wonders.  Because it’s made with Peppermint, Rosemary, and Cardamom, you’ll be ready to face the day.

Once you’re actually at work, grab your Citrus Delight Essential Oil whenever stress builds.  This essential oil blend is a natural mood-booster, so squeeze a couple of drops onto a tissue and breathe in.  As soon as all of those sunny citrus oils make their way into your nasal passages, you’ll feel more relaxed and ready to tackle whatever hits your desk next!

But what about those physical problems?  How do you get rid of them?

Headaches and other stress-related aches and pains can ruin your entire life.  So, before you suffer any longer, tap into the power of aromatherapy!  Not only is it easy to take advantage of the right essential oils, it’s also a whole lot better than popping a pill every time something starts to hurt.

If all of that stress makes your head throb, simply rub some Headache Roll On onto your temples, forehead, and the back of your neck.  The ingredients in it are natural analgesics and anti-infammatories, so they’ll be able to relieve even the strongest of stress headaches.  (As an added bonus, these ingredients are just as helpful in getting rid of the sore wrists you get from spending hours typing on the computer!  Just roll onto your wrists, and you’ll immediately feel better.)

Unfortunately, aches and pains aren’t the only physical problem you can suffer from at work.  With all of those employees cooped up inside the office, it’s impossible to avoid air-borne germs.  And, when you’re constantly stressed, your immune system gets weaker — meaning you’re even more likely to wind up feeling congested and downright icky!

If the sniffles creep up at work, squeeze one drop of Immune Support essential oil into your hands, and breathe in.  It will clear up clogged nasal passages AND act as a hand sanitizer!

To sanitize the environment around you, fill a 4oz glass bottle with distilled water, add 5 drops of Eucalyptus oil and 10 drops of Peppermint oil, and use the mixture as a disinfectant for your desk, your phone, or anything else you have to touch.  You can even spray some into the air when someone nearby sneezes!

For a bigger boost, rub 1/2 teaspoon of Immune Support body oil onto your chest after a hot shower to clear out your sinuses.

Never knew there were so many ways aromatherapy could offer stress relief, did you?  Now that you’re armed with knowledge, tap into Aromandina’s products to keep your work life from ruining your personal life!

Pretty woman's legs with luxury red silk sheet

If you’re like me, you love spending time outside on a warm afternoon in your favorite pair of shorts.  The only thing that can drag one of these days down is legs that are inflamed, irritated, and speckled with ingrown hairs from shaving or waxing!

Tulcan Cemetery

If you’ve ever been to Ecuador, you’ve probably seen (or at least heard of!) the Tulcan Cemetery and its three-acre topiary made of Cypress.  The smell is as beautiful as the scenery itself, which is why this place is so popular with both tourists and locals!

You don’t have to go all the way to Ecuador to experience the magic of Cypress, though.  Instead, you can create your own Cypress wonderland through aromatherapy!

Cypress for transitions:

I’ve always been fascinated with Cypress topiaries, but it wasn’t until I began studying aromatherapy that I realized just how powerful Cypress really is.  In Latin, Cypress is known as Cupresus sempervirens, which translates to “always alive”.  That translation couldn’t be more accurate, because Cypress trees can live for up to 1,000 years!  They are strong and majestic, always pointing towards the sky.

Natural air freshner
From that garlic you cooked last night, to the dog’s muddy feet, it doesn’t take much for strange smells to pop up around your home.  But whether you’re fighting a certain odor or you simply want to get rid of that stale smell, synthetic air fresheners AREN’T the way to go.

I know… the commercials make them seem like little gifts from the heavens.  A few sprays, and your home smells fresh and vibrant.  Unfortunately, what those commercials DON’T mention is that these air fresheners are full of dangerous chemicals that can cause everything from migraines to asthma attacks.  Plus, synthetic air fresheners don’t remove odors.  They only mask them!

So, how do you keep your home smelling great?

With natural air fresheners that are made with essential oils!

Natural Air freshener

After all, essential oils don’t just smell good; they also give your body a boost.  Whether you want to feel more energized or eliminate the day’s stresses, essential oils can do it.  So, they’re the perfect things to use to freshen up the air around your home!

You can even tailor your essential oils to the specific mood you’re trying to create in each room. 

For example, if you want to turn your bedroom into a relaxing oasis, tap into the power of Cedarwood, Lemongrass, or Lavender.

Want to kick things up a notch in your living room for that party you’re throwing?  Use festive oils, like Orange, Clary Sage, Geranium, or Litsea Cubeba.

Want your kids to feel rejuvenated when they sit down to do their homework?  Place a natural air freshener made with Peppermint and Lemon essential oil in their rooms. 

You can even give your sex life a boost by using Ylang Ylang, Jasmine, or Patchouli oils in your bedroom!

The great thing about essential oils is that they’re not overpowering.  When you use the right recipes (which we’ll go over in just a minute), your natural air fresheners will be like soft background music.  You won’t really think about them consciously, but they’ll definitely help the mood in the room!

OK, so how do you create these natural air fresheners?

There are several different DIY options to choose from, and they’re all easy to create:

1.  Room spray
natural air fresheners

Fill a 4 oz glass bottle with 1 tablespoon white vinegar and distilled water.  Then, add 20 drops of your favorite blend of oils.  A spritz or two will give your room a fresh feeling anytime odor starts to creep in.

2.  Aromatherapy burner

Vaporizing is a great way to infuse a room with scent, without overpowering your senses.  Simply fill the burner bowl with water, add 5-15 drops of your favorite essential oil, and light the candle.  In a matter of minutes, your rooms will give you that emotional boost you’re looking for.

(Tip:  I personally prefer to use an electric burner)

3. Rug and Carpet Natural Disinfectant

Unfortunately, those carpets and area rugs you so carefully picked out soak up yucky odors like a sponge!  If you want your home to smell fresh and clean, you’ve got to disinfect them.  Sure, you’ve got cleaning products, but why not disinfect AND add a mood-boosting scent at the same time?!

Simply mix one cup of baking soda with 30 drops of your favorite essential oil.  Mix well, and spread the mixture onto your carpets and rugs.  Let it sit for an hour, and then vacuum it up.

No matter which method you choose, you’ll be able to take a deep breath and LOVE the way your home smells and feels!
