Being our best self often means we need to go deeper into our wounds. To get to loving ourselves again we must identify the areas we have failed, let ourselves down and made messes. On the other side of these courageous acts of finding ourselves and shifting our moods, we can be kind again. We can thank ourselves for our depth of character, our willingness to always push boundaries and our unrelenting desire for self love over self loathing. Few people will do this for you. This is something you do for yourself. This is adoring yourself.
Aromatherapy is perhaps one of the most effective ways to manage stress, anxiety and to address our well being with breath and essential oils. The inhalation of aromatherapy provides the user with a gentle treatment and a feeling of control and self empowerment as well as a deeper connection to our true nature. The available methods vary, ranging from bath products, body oils, room sprays, creams, and diffusers. Managing moods requires, however, more than simply the purchase and application of a product.
Choosing to be responsible for our own moods requires us to listen to the best guide we have on hand - ourselves. This responsibility asks us to listen to our own body, becoming accustomed to its signals and needs. Diet and nutrition are critical components to this process as are the needs for emotional balance and support, we must make the time for the relationships and experiences that nourish and support our optimum selves.
Spiritual, Therapeutic and Aesthetic Benefits of Aromatherapy
True aromatherapy is the art and science of using pure extracts from aromatic plant materials, termed essential oils, to attend to specific health and wellness needs while utilizing a holistic framework. Through education and practice we can explore scent combinations that can help to naturally induce a state of balance in our lives and reconnect us with various aspects of our human experience. The focus areas for which we use aromatherapy to foster a healthy lifestyle are our physiology, our psychology (including our emotions), and of course our spirituality.
