Aromatherapy is a really common use for essential oils, but not everyone is familiar with it. At Jordan Essentials, we sell a range of essential oils that can be used for many different applications, and aromatherapy is a great one. Let Jordan Essentials give you a quick breakdown of aromatherapy, and how it could be a great way to use your essential oils to relax.
Aromatherapy is the use of different scents to treat ailments. Sometimes it can be things like scented candles or incense, but most commonly aromatherapy practitioners will use essential oils. This is a practice that’s been around since the early 1900s and is still popular with many people today.
By breathing in the different scents associated with different essential oils, the nerves inside your nose, and then your brain, are stimulated in different ways. Depending on the type of smell it is, it can wake up and give you energy, or it can help you relax or wind-down.
Aromatherapy is used for all kinds of different ailments, but the biggest tends to be for general stress or anxiety. Your sense of smell is a lot like your sense of hearing – just like the way the right song can put you in a different mood, or trigger a specific, vivid memory, so can the right smell.
Putting this into practice through essential oils in aromatherapy is a great way to control your mood and your outlook. Reducing stress generally has other benefits too, helping to lower the risk of heart problems, high blood pressure, and insomnia.
As always, Jordan Essentials want to remind you that, if you feel like you might have some more serious problems to speak with your doctor. Aromatherapy can be a great supplement to medical treatment you might need, but you shouldn’t treat it as a substitute.
Using essential oils for aromatherapy can be pretty simple. There are a lot of practitioners out there who will use aromatherapy and essential oils in their own way – which is a great opportunity to take a look at the Jordan Essentials collection of oils, by the way.

While this might not give you the full aromatherapy experience, it’s a great way to make your home that much more relaxing.
