Incorporating aromatherapy into a shower routine can have a beneficial effect on how we start the day. Aromatherapy can work on several levels, all of which work to support your mind, body and soul. 

When looking to incorporate the benefits of aromatherapy into your daily shower, it’s important to look at the levels of absorption and inhalation. 

Inhalation – or the sense of smell – works by stimulating smell receptors in the nose, which then send messages through the nervous system and onto the part of the brain that controls emotions, the limbic system. The limbic system includes the amygdala, which is the emotion control centre of the brain.  

When absorbed through the skin, the essential oils move through the body via the bloodstream and the therapeutic benefits are reaped by the bodily systems and organs. The benefits of absorbing essential oils can be further increased by massage, as this also works to support circulation. Depending on the essential oil, some can get to work within the body within just a few minutes and their benefits can continue supporting you for hours or even days.  

So how can I have the perfect aromatherapy shower?  

Look for shower products that incorporate essential oils. Not only will the smell wake you and your senses up, but the therapeutic properties can continue to work wonders for you long after you are dressed and getting on with your day.  In addition, try gently massaging your skin as you use them, in small circular movements to ensure the essential oils within the products are working extra hard.
