Aromatherapy for Emotional Support and Natural Skin Care
Aromatherapy is a branch of alternative medicine that utilizes particular aromatic compounds like essential oils to help a person restore mental and physical health. Like many “alternative” medical practices, aromatherapy has been used for centuries by other cultures but is newer to the US. That said, aromatherapy has become more and more popular over the years with many people using it to great success to treat conditions including depression, PMS, burns, insect bites (and repellent) and, skin care!
Yep, there are plenty of essential oils that offer amazing benefits for your skin. They are very effective particularly when combined with our plant based extracts and antioxidant as well as the other natural ingredients we use to formulate Sevani skincare products.
How do you use essential oils for aromatherapy?
Using essential oils is easy with Sevani; just apply our products as directed on the labels. You can also get the benefits of EOs through inhalation, or, add the oils to a carrier oil like our organic argan oil and massage into skin, temples or pulse points.
Remember though, most essential oils should never be applied directly to the skin because they can cause irritation in their undiluted (neat) form. In addition, a synergistic blend is often created by certified aromatherapists, like the Sevani tea, for maximum benefits!
