After a hectic day it is only natural to want to unwind and transport yourself to your favourite destination with your favourite person. But since travelling is out of bounds, you turn to the next best option and turn on the diffuser or light up a scented candle which slowly spreads its magic and fills the room with a crisp fragrance that helps you relax and enjoy your ‘me time’.

Welcome to that one hour of the day when aromatherapy helps you calm down and makes you feel relaxed with just one sensory pleasure — smell.

With its roots in Ayurveda, aromatherapy derives its name from the word aroma, which means fragrance or smell and therapy which means treatment.

Ayurveda is divided into eight branches and Aromatherapy is mentioned in the Rasayana Tantra – the book of rejuvenation. This branch talks about healthcare and this is where aromatherapy is mentioned. Aromatherapy is not only about the smell; it can also be practiced through topical application. Whether it is massaging it on the pulse points to boost circulation or just applying it over your scalp – it has a holistic effect on your body.

But how does aromatherapy work?

On inhaling essential oils, molecules of the oil pass through the nose and mouth to the lungs and from there to other parts of the body. As the molecules reach the brain, it stimulates the limbic system. The limbic system is a part of the brain that is linked to emotions, behavioral responses, blood pressure and respiration. In this way, essentials oils have a holistic effect on the body, moods and emotions.

When it comes to topical application of essential oils, the molecules of the oil are absorbed by the skin. Absorption can be enhanced by massaging the target area before applying the oil, which also leads to increased blood circulation.

Made with much thought and care, each essential oil used in EON Organic’s products has multiple unique benefits for the user. Some oils have a calming effect while some of the others create an invigorating sensation.

Is it advised to practice aromatherapy during a particular season or time of the day to reap maximum benefits?

Well while there is no best time to practice aromatherapy, it is important that we set an intention of what we want to achieve before starting this practice. For example, lavender oil has a very sedative, relaxing calming fragrance, and should be used in the bedroom in the evenings. One can even try rose and vetiver in the summer months as they are cooling and can be used in summers.

Are there chances of one overdoing it ?

There is no overdoing aromatherapy. It helps you stay connected with nature all the time and is a stress reliever while making sure you concentrate better and yes one can never overdo nature !
