Aromatherapy is said to be widely beneficial in alleviating sore muscles, minor colds, and symptoms of stress. Today, I?ll be taking you through some practical aromatherapy scents and uses. After all, you never know when you?ll need an aromatic pick me up.
Which Aromatherapy Blend Do You Need?
1. Good Night?s Sleep
Mix 7 drops of Roman chamomile with 5 drops of lavender to help fall asleep. Personally, I?ve found lavender to be a gem as a relaxer and sleeping aid. It?s one of my favorite essential oils whenever I have the chance to pamper myself with a massage.
2. Sore Muscles
Some say?a combination of the following help soothe sore muscles: 2 drops of ginger, 1 drop of black pepper, 4 drops of peppermint, and 5 drops of eucalyptus. A few whiffs of the mixture should help do the trick.

In need of a little pick-me-up? Others say?a combination of 4 drops of lemon, 4 drops of peppermint, and 2 drops of Frankincense can help turn someone?s day around. The scent of Frankincense can be a tad too strong for some, so I recommend to use this sparingly.
One of the benefits aromatherapy is known for is its way of increasing a person?s concentration. Simply create a concoction consisting of 4 drops of lemon oil, 2 drops of peppermint oil, and 6 drops of rosemary oil. Rosemary oil primarily functions as a stimulant. That’s why it’s one of the popular essential oils for students and anyone needing extra help to focus.
6. Mood Enhancer
Have you ever had those moments where a scent can change your disposition in a snap? I know I have. My secret lies in mixing 8 drops of orange essential oil and 2 drops of Ylang-ylang essential oil. The citrus scent of orange is such a lovely whiff ? it makes me feel so energized.

Feeling a little under the weather because of your blocked sinuses? Here?s a tip for sinus relief: Mix 8 drops of eucalyptus with 4 drops of peppermint. The best part is, this sinus relief medication is all natural and nontoxic ? perfect for those concerned with their well-being.

You can also apply?this on your lower abdomen area and place?a warm compress after for maximum relief.
10. Injuries and Pain
