Did you know, right now in the U.S., 8 out of 10 Americans are affected by some kind of stress? Whether it’s work related, personal, or due to outside factors that are out of our control, it’s safe to say, we’re more stressed out than ever before today.
When we’re stressed, we’re unable to think clearly, calmly, and logically, which can impact our focus and concentration. This can, in turn, make us more stressed, because we perform poorly at our jobs, in person, or for our families. That’s why so many people are looking for solutions to their stress problems.
The good news is: aromatherapy is one of the most efficient solutions available today.

Aromatherapy is a pseudoscience based on the usage of aromatic materials, including essential oils and other aroma compounds. Dating back to science that is thousands of years old, aromatherapy is able to harness natural oils and compounds afforded through Mother Nature, helping our mind, body, and spirit to unwind, relax, and focus.
Of the studies conducted to date, the following has been deduced about aromatherapy:
Aromatherapy can alter brain waves and behavior, changing stress patterns
Aromatherapy can reduce the perception of stress and increase contentment
Aromatherapy can decrease the levels of cortisol, otherwise known as the stress hormone, in our bodies
Aromatherapy massage can have beneficial effects on anxiety and depression
Stress Relief Compatibility
Beyond its natural abilities, aromatherapy can occur in a room while you do something else. You can paint, draw, read, or do whatever it is that helps you unwind, while still absorbing the benefits of the aromatherapy diffuser.
Aromatherapy can also be combined with other stress relievers, like meditation or praying, to exacerbate the stress relief.
Lastly, when rubbed into massages, essential oil aromatherapy has been proven to reduce pain, depression, and anxiety, which are all side effects of consistent stress.
Of the different essential oils you can pair with aromatherapy, lavender has proven to reduce stress when experienced. The lavender oil calms the nervous system, lowers blood pressure, heart rates, and rewires your brain to help you become more relaxed.
