Life is busy. Between work, the kids, late-night binge-watching, and trying to avoid grocery shopping (again), it can feel like you just can’t catch a break. If you’re like most people, you could probably use a more calm, relaxed nightly routine. Many people are turning to aromatherapy (in the form of essential oils, oil diffusers and soothing balms) to help relax before bed. Today, we’ll talk about why aromatherapy is a great option and how you can incorporate it into your relaxation routine.
All About Aromatherapy
Aromatherapy has been used for centuries in medicine, therapies, meditation and more. It uses essential oils from various flora and fauna to impact the way a person feels. Many people like to use aromatherapy at night because it is drug-free and nature-inspired. Who doesn’t like the sound of that?
Add it to Your Nightly Routine
There are many different ways to add aromatherapy to your nighttime or evening routine. You can use an oil diffuser to spread the fragrance of pure essential oils throughout your room. Candles are another great way to bring aromatherapy into your home. Our favorite way to unwind at night is to use Vicks® PURE Zzzs™ Soothing Aromatherapy Balm. This product pairs the aromatic fragrances of lavender and chamomile essential oils with a moisturizing skin balm. Plus, it’s drug- and paraben-free, so you can relax without worry.
Why Relaxation Matters
You might be thinking, why go through all the trouble to relax at night? First, it feels good. Just like a massage or a trip to the spa, relaxing, especially at night, can help you feel better than before. Second, unlike those often-pricey options, aromatherapy can be a more cost-effective approach you can enjoy every day. Thirdly, you deserve it. After running around all day, why not treat yourself to a nice relaxing aromatherapy session? It can help soothe your body at the end of a long day.
