1. The power of scent
February 11, 2021

Inhaling essential oils or natural perfume oils are known to stimulate our limbic system which is the area of our brain that is linked to regulating emotions, breathing, stress responses and hormone balancing. This is why aromatherapy is a great and easy way to enhance your wellbeing. 

Below are some tips on how you can integrate essential oils into your daily life and make the most of their powerful healing properties.

The main reasons why people use aromatherapy are
Stress / Anxiety
Headaches / Migraines
Musculoskeletal problems
Hormonal problems
Respiratory problems
Arthritis & rheumatism
Skin problems
Chronic fatigue
Sinus problems



    “Aromatherapy is the holistic therapeutic application of essential oils for enhancing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health of the individual.”




    Our favourite methods of using aromatherapy, especially for stress relief, are inhaling it directly from the bottle, running yourself an essential oil bath, steam diffusion, inhaling it directly from your palms, practicing self massage ( for example with our Luce Ayurvedic Body Oil ) or booking in a massage therapy session with a customized essential oil blend.
