Are lethargy, tension and boredom becoming part of your life? Are you worried for your problems day and night? Then you are suffering from one of the common modern ailments for which there is no medicinal help available. But as a saying goes; nothing is impossible in the world. Making yourself happy and free of worries is also possible. You just need to take small steps towards a blissful life.
Aromatherapy has been used for curing various common ailments for years and has been accepted as a successful treatment by the global community. Massaging is one way of unwinding the worries of daily life. It helps in relaxing body muscles and increasing the blood circulation in the body. If massaging is done with essential oils then its aroma is sufficient to increase the healing effects of massage. When you inhale the aroma of essential oil through nasal passage, it affects heart rate, stress level, blood pressure, breathing, memory, digestion and the immune system. Aromatic oils help the body in achieving a total well being in a natural way.
Different essential oils have different effects. Some provides a soothing and calming effect while other rejuvenates the body. The oils which have calming effects on the mind include chamomile, lavender and geranium. Oils like ylang ylang, rose, clary sage and neroli uplift the mood and bring back cheer on the face. Rosemary has energizing and cleansing properties. Eucalyptus, pine and tree tea oil have decongesting abilities.
Any of the aromatic oils can be selected depending on the desired qualities one is seeking. Massage through essential oils is healing but if some precautions are taken care of, the positive effects can be increased manifold. Avoid massage if you are suffering from open wounds and rashes. Immediately after surgery and chemotherapy, massage should not be undertaken. Pregnant women should consult their doctors before undergoing massage. Take a light meal before massage.
