Aromatherapy uses natural scents and essential oils to help people feel calmer, more focused, and ready to face the day. While different scents can impact people differently, there are some key essential oils to try if you want to feel more relaxed, better able to sleep, and more energized throughout the day. Check out these tips on which oils to try, and the best ways of using them.

Lavender Essential Oil

Lavender is well known as a scent that can help people to relax and prepare for sleep and rest. The ideal time to use lavender essential oil is an hour before bed, so your body and mind can start to unwind in time for sleep. Many people find the best way to deliver the oil is through an essential oil diffuser so that their sleeping space is infused with the calming lavender scent.

Peppermint Essential Oil

The fresh, zingy scent of peppermint has been proven to help with energy and combatting fatigue. This is a great oil to use throughout the day, to avoid those dips in energy. Mix one drop of peppermint oil into a neutral base oil and dab a bit on your wrists, so you’ve got a handy energy boost on the go.

Cinnamon Essential Oil

A great way to get the scent of cinnamon around your home is to use a high-quality, soy-based candle. This gorgeous scent has been shown to help with relaxation and boost calmness, but it can also help to lift your focus and energy after a draining day. Light a candle and let it fill your room with its lovely, relaxing scent.
