As long as you're breathing, Aromatherapy stress relief (also called "fragrance therapy") is an option you can consider to naturally relieve your stress.

What Is It?..

Natural scents are a part of your everyday. Some stop you in your tracks to enjoy them. Well this is the thought behind Aromatherapy stress relief...stop, smell and relax.

The natural or essential oils used come from plants. They've been used for their health and relaxing benefits for years.

Here are some popular scents....

Bergamot: A great antiseptic, it's good for helping with acne caused by bacteria, and common skin irritations.

Clary Sage: Is used for it's relaxing benefits. It helps to relieve stress and bring emotional balance.

Chamomile: Relaxes the mind and body, and reduces skin inflammations.

Eucalyptus: Stimulates the mind helping to improve concentration. Also used as an antiseptic as well as nasal and lung decongestant.

Geranium: Has calming and relaxing benefits. Is also used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, helping with skin problems.

Lavender: Due to it's relaxing and tension relieving benefits, its used to relieve stress, anxiety and headaches.

Lemon: Commonly used as an astringent and antiseptic. It helps with sore throats, and digestion issues.

Peppermint: A good antibacterial, decongestant and muscle relaxer.

Ylang Ylang: Used as an anti-depressant, relieves tentsion and fights bacteria, making it a good choice for acne.

My favorite scent is the lavender for its relaxing effect. I use the body wash to shower, and the spray on my sheets at bedtime. The scent makes it easier for me to relax and fall asleep.
