Emotional benefits of essential oils to support isolation during the Coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis
It is certainly important in these uncertain times to follow the WHO guidance on basic safety and hygienic rules, to keep a healthy body and reduce your chances to catch the coronavirus. We have also published to that end a good formula for a hand sanitiser.
But it is also important to keep a healthy mind and essential oils can help create a more positive atmosphere at home for you and your loved ones.
Some of the emotional and mind support essential oils can bring are:
- Calming: lavender, frankincense, chamomile
- Uplifting and focusing: bergamot, lemongrass, peppermint
- Combating stress/Relieving anxiety: patchouli, lemongrass
- Sensuality: rose, ylang, jasmine, vanilla
- Happiness: sandalwood, ginger
The properties of each oils are listed on this blog for further reference on that.
A great way to dispense them in your home is to use them in your diffuser or a burner. But you can also simply massage a drop or two of oils gently on your wrist or on your neck, or as part of your shower routine (a few drops on a sponge), in a massage oil, as a room spray, etc.
