Recently, I am really into fragrance and oils. I am loving candles and also trying oils with a calming effect. Suffering stress related migraines can really knock it out of you and I have found that certain smells and products can really help to calm me down.
Kathleen sent me a roll on oil to try in the scent “tranquil fields”
“Top Note: Lavender Essential Oil
Lavender is one of the most calming herbal oils and benefits the mind and body by reducing anxiety and emotional stresses, improving sleep and brain functions, relieving pain, and helping to heal burns and wounds.
Heart Note: Frankincense Essential Oil
The power of frankincense is extraordinary. Its sweet and woody fragrance is often used to promote relaxation, relieve chronic stress and anxiety, and reduce pain. It can build immunity, reduce inflammation, heal age spots, and help relax and calm the mind.
Base Note: Vanilla Extract
Vanilla is rated as one of the most relaxing aromas. Vanilla can be used as a sedative and body oil because of its properties as an antioxidant and antidepressant. Scientists found the smell of vanilla eases breathing problems and sleep apnea in premature infants. Warm vanilla helps bring an overall sense of balance and harmony to the body and mind.” – www.kathleennatural.co.uk
If i am feeling stressed or can feel a headache or migraine coming on, I like to sniff this roll on as well as applying a small amount onto my temples, my wrists and behind my ears. Sometimes I even rub a little just under my nose. The lavender really helps to calm, it is one of my favourite scents anyway.
The roll on is so easy to use and is great to carry about. It dispenses just enough without leaving your skin feeling oily and without being messy.
Do you have a favourite scent that calms you?
