The ULTIMATE Guide to Aromatherapy

What is Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is defined as the use of essential oils from plants to achieve therapeutic benefits. Over the past several years, aromatherapy has been gaining in popularity due to its well-documented results and ease of accessibility. 

What are essential oils? They’re extracts from plants made by pressing different parts of the plant to capture the compounds that produce fragrance. It’s a centuries-old, tried and true technique. 

How Does Aromatherapy Work?

Inhaling the scent molecules directly and positively impacts the amygdala, the area of the brain responsible for emotions. It also has positive physical effects on the body. For example, applying a specific essential oil on sore muscles can help to relieve tension. 

People turn to aromatherapy for a variety of ailments, including stress, headaches, anxiety, depression, fatigue, even nausea and insomnia. The list is quite extensive!

Today we’re going to discuss how aromatherapy can be used at home for its health benefits and more.

Scent Your Way to Good Health

Lèlior is a family-owned company that believes in creating products that actually help improve lives. Knowing that our diffusers and fragrance oils are part of what brightens people’s days is what motivates us and keeps us searching for new and better ways to make a positive difference.

We have created an entire line of aromatherapy oils so you can easily get relief from whatever is bothering you. All of our fragrance oils are completely natural, chemical-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, and safe for humans and pets of all ages. 

Beware of so-called “natural” fragrances! Unless they specifically state that they are all-natural, they are loaded with toxic chemicals that have been linked to all sorts of chronic health issues. Lelior’s products are all-natural, so you can feel good about doing good for your body and mind.

Different Ailments, Different Oils

Did you know that stress is one of the major causes of sickness? It lowers our immune system, allowing viruses and bacteria to wreak havoc on our health. Stress also raises blood pressure, and we all know what that can lead to. Therefore, lowering stress levels is essential to accomplishing and maintaining good health.

Calm Essential Oil

Calm is our essential oil created specifically for stress relief. It’s a delicious-smelling combination of lavender, chamomile, bergamot, rosemary, and sandalwood. Lavender and chamomile contain well-known calming properties, and the addition of bergamot and rosemary adds a citrusy, fresh scent that complements the heavier scents of lavender and sandalwood. We’ve also added tonka beans, a very special and unique ingredient. Tonka beans have a caramel-like, warm and sweet undertone and are extremely calming in their own right. 

Put a few drops of Calm in your wireless L’Etoile diffuser when you get home from a stressful day at work, and feel that stress just melt away as you relax on the couch. 

Energy Essential Oil 

Looking for a quick pick-me-up? Try Energy, a bright and citrusy essential oil. Composed of grapefruit, mint, eucalyptus, rosemary, and sea salt, this fragrant oil is sure to lift your spirits and energize you. Place a few drops of Energy in your Conception de Luxe Mini diffuser for a noticeable boost in your day. 

If you suffer from energy lows at work, our Le Bonaparte portable diffuser is perfect for your desktop. Made for scenting smaller spaces, Le Bonaparte will be your favorite work companion!

Recovery Essential Oil 

During the holiday season, many of us tend to indulge just a bit too much. Celebrating is fun, but we can pay a price if we overdo it. Have you been overtraining to make up for those extra holiday calories, and now you’re exhausted? No worries! Recovery is here to save the day! 

A delightful combination of orange, peppermint, geranium and sage, Recovery will support your body and mind, helping them reset and get back to their balanced states. It’s a mental as well as a physical pick-me-up, ideal for situations in which you’ve pushed yourself a bit too hard. 

Recovery is perfect for our La Piaf diffuser, because you will smell it from almost anywhere in your home. Made for scenting up to 3,000 square feet, La Piaf allows you to be anywhere at home and still enjoy the benefits of Recovery. Relax on the couch, take a nap in your bed, or continue on with the holiday festivities - Recovery is here for you every step of the way. 

Happy and Healthy with Aromatherapy 

This holiday season, treat yourself to more than just great food. Be good to your body and give it what it deserves - a helping hand to achieve what it needs. From helping with focus, inspiring your creativity, and so much more, essential oil aromatherapy is an easy, healthy way to keep you at the top of your game.
