Simple and Effective Ways to Use Essential Oils for Women’s Health*

Essential Oils for Women's HealthAromatherapy – Diffuse oils in a room to create a relaxing or energizing atmosphere.

Aromatherapy is based on the usage of aromatic materials including essential oils and other aroma compounds, with claims for improving psychological and physical well-being.

Essential oils change our mood and help to relieve stress as the olfactory nerves interact with the limbic system in the brain which controls our stress responses. Smelling an essential oil, applying it topically to smell all day long, and diffusing them into the air are three ways to get the stress relieving benefits of essential oils.

Checkout the blog on “Diffusing Essential Oils” on the different ways to diffuse your essential oils. You will find many blog articles with diffusing recipes in our “DIY Recipes” section (just search diffuse or diffusing).
