The Science of Aromatherapy

The Science of Aromatherapy

Fragrance can elevate and improve your mind, body and home. 

Aromatherapy is the holistic and natural approach to healing and wellbeing using the power of aroma. It is used to treat a variety of conditions such as pain, anxiety, depression and also help boost your mood, focus and creativity. It often goes by the name 'Essential Oil Therapy'.

Most people think that the only way to get the full benefits of aromatherapy is by leaving your home and investing time and money at a spa or treatment centre but aromatherapy is also really effective at home and can easily be done to not only heal you but also others.

Aromatherapy translates well in the home, after all, your home is an extension of you. When choosing the scent for each room in your home it's important to ask the following questions; How do i feel in this moment? How do i want to feel? Why am i feeling this way? and What do i want to achieve from here on? 

Once you've settled on the above you can now explore the power of fragrance and create a bespoke range of scents for each room depending on your answers.

Home fragrance can differ from room to room. Bathrooms benefit from herbaceous and woodsy scents like lavender and eucalyptus whilst bedrooms often call for light floral scents like rose or jasmine.

Read on for our guide on which notes work  best with which rooms, as well as what feelings and functions they help enhance of relieve. 

 

LIVING ROOM

Living rooms are where, well, the living happens. These social spaces often call for scents that are engaging and warming. Think citrus scents with grounding base notes that warm the room with its ambient glow. Helios is the perfect balance of energizing and warming creating an atmosphere that is both cosy and lifted.

 

KITCHEN

The kitchen is where most of the smells are made; trying to work alongside and compliment cooking smells is tricky but it can be done. Like the living room, Kitchens should be impactful but not overwhelming, this can be done using citrus and herbaceous scents like Bergamot or Lemongrass.

 

BATHROOM

The bathroom is a cleansing space, built for moments of rejuvenation. It's easy to recreate the relaxing atmosphere of a spa here, using notes of eucalyptus, lemon or lavender. Our Panacea candle is the perfect companion for evening bath time soaks. 

 

BEDROOM

Bedrooms should be kept light and relaxing, to help combat insomnia, bad dreams or other unwanted night time conditions, soothe your frantic mind with clarifying and serene fragrances such as rose, lavender or patchouli to help ground down after a long day. Our Petrichor candle is the clear choice for sleepy time fragrances, it is light, floral and designed to calm. 

OFFICE

Your office space is where you get things DONE. These spaces call for scents that enhance your focus, energy and creativity allowing you to function at your best. Use spicy scents such as ginger or peppermint to encourage your mind to be its best self.
