Ayurveda provides a lot of remedies and advices that can improve our psychological well-being and balance our emotions.
Essential oils not only relieve tension or stress after a hard day, but also influence our psychological and mental state. Daily relaxation with essential oils or mixtures, during the period of 2-3 weeks, will lead to a more accurate perception of life events and stressful situations and will help to preserve health.
Here are the principal ‘stars’ – natural essential oils we recommend to use:
Home Perfume with Orange & Sandal Wood essential oils
Orange essential oil: Boosts mood. Invigorates and helps to enjoy life.
Ylang ylang essential oil: Balances emotions. Calms down. Removes anxiety, irritability and fear. Works as an antidepressant: gives sense of confidence and boosts the mood. Helps in case of insomnia.
Cedar essential oil: Removes tension and anxiety, helps to think straight. Brings calmness. Helps to overcome shocking experience or a weird and inexplicable event.

￼There are different methods for using aromatherapy to have a positive effect on our emotions. At the end of a hard day it’s best to take a bath with aromatic bath bombs and to use home perfume with essential oils. If you need to recover from an argument or an emotional “outburst”, you can apply oil or solid perfume on a wrist’s pulse area or on a handkerchief and breathe in deeply for a couple of minutes. Relaxing massage with essential oils helps greatly, when a stressful state has become chronic. We can prepare a custom order with essential oils that are of interest to you.
