Spring is finally here! As we wave goodbye to what feels like the longest and coldest winter yet, it’s time to say hello to lighter mornings, longer days and brighter weather (we hope). It’s the time of year for new beginnings and making positive changes which will set a precedent for the rest of the year. The weather has a massive impact on our everyday mood, therefore it’s important that we spend as much time in natural daylight as we possibly can. However, aromatherapy can also help give us that extra boost as we shift from season to season. Five essential oils that I would recommend using to help uplift your mood are:
Lemon oil is one of my favourites as it has so many therapeutic properties. It has a detoxifying effect on the mind, helps boost the body’s immune system, and can even help soothe headaches and migraines.
Clary Sage oil is an anti depressant and a sedative therefore is calming to the nervous system, particularly in cases of depression, stress, insomnia and deep seated tension.
Orange oil is good for overall wellbeing and promoting relaxation. Like lemon oil, it has a detoxifying effect on the mind and body and helps boost the immune system. Another oil that can be used as an alternative to Orange is Mandarin.
Like Lemon and Orange oil, Grapefruit oil contains high levels of Vitamin C making it great at boosting the immune system. It also has an uplifting effect on the mind and can help with cases of stress and depression.
Patchouli oil has a balancing effect on the mind and body and has proven effective in treating depression and anxiety. It can also help with lethargy and improving mood swings as well as clearing the mind.
The five essential oils which I have mentioned are just a few of the many essential oils that can help with your overall wellbeing. At Moreton Place Beauty & Wellbeing, following a consultation, I will choose the appropriate oils based on your individual needs.
You may wish to use aromatherapy as a treatment to help improve symptoms solely associated with enhancing your mood or you may want assistance with improving other conditions too. The great thing about aromatherapy is that essential oils have many therapeutic benefits which can provide relief from multiple physical and mental conditions. However, to achieve the best possible results with aromatherapy I highly recommend booking a course of four treatments.
I look forward to seeing you soon for your aromatherapy treatment.
