Please read on to learn just some of the beneficial side effects of aromatherapy.

Helps Mental Health

Many different essential oils contain aromatic compounds known to relax the body and soothe the mind, reducing stress and eliminating anxiety. Aromatherapy can also help eliminate feelings of depression – it is a complementary treatment, and should be used alongside other forms of psychological healing. The best essential oils for reducing depression and alleviating the stress of the mind are peppermint, chamomile, lavender, and jasmine.

Manages Pain

One of the most useful applications of aromatherapy is its ability to relieve pain in the body. Essential oils can help manage chronic pain, treat headaches and migraines, soothe sore joints, help with inflammation and arthritis, and are great for menstrual and menopause issues. The best oils for this are lavender, chamomile, clary sage, juniper, eucalyptus, rosemary, and peppermint.

Improves Sleep Quality

Poor sleep quality can wreak havoc on the system and make other stressors on the mind and body that much worse. Those who suffer from insomnia or constant fatigue could greatly benefit from aromatherapy on the body, as it can realign our circadian rhythms to help us get back on a natural sleep pattern. The essential oils that have a sedative effect on the body include lavender, chamomile, jasmine, benzoin, neroli, rose, sandalwood, sweet marjoram, and ylang-ylang.
