Aromatherapy Blends for the Soul
Everyone interprets scents differently, and connects certain smells with poignant memories. But regardless of what scents resonate with you personally, researchers have proven that, psychologically, the human sense of smell is the most accurate sense at triggering specific memories and emotions.
Working off of this idea, DIY’ers around the globe have concocted oil blends to naturally combat common ailments. Take a look at some of these aromatherapy remedies:
Can’t Sleep: 5 drops Lavender + 7 drops Roman Chamomile
Sore Muscles: 2 drops Ginger + 1 drop Black Pepper + 4 drops Peppermint + 5 drops Eucalyptus
Stress: 2 drops Lemon + 4 drops Lavender + 6 drops Clary Sage
Cuts and Bruises: 6 drops Tea Tree + 6 drops Lavender
Headaches and Sinus Congestion: 4 drops Peppermint + 8 drops Eucalyptus
If you do want to try these combinations at home, try to find small dark bottles to store them in. Dark glass will let less light into the contents and keep your oils from going off, as heat is damaging to their properties.
