Essential Oils: A Natural Elixir for Stress Relief


Even in the summer, the hustle and bustle of our daily lives as professionals, or moms juggling kids at home and work, leads to stress becoming an all too common way of life. The challenge of maintaining some sort of work-life balance, the pressure to meet deadlines and perform well on the job, and keeping up with responsibilities at home can start to impact our overall well-being. Luckily, powerful tools at our disposal can bring some calm and balance back into our day. One of them is aromatherapy.

Aromatherapy is an age-old practice that can help combat stress. Here’s how:

1. Customize Essential Oils To Improve Your Mood

Essential oils come in a variety of aromas that can work wonders on your mood and overall well-being. From the uplifting aroma of citrus fruits to the calming scent of lavender, each essential


2. Wellness Through Inhalation

One of the simplest, most effective ways to reap the benefits of aromatherapy is through inhalation. My favorite way to incorporate essential oils through inhalation is in a shower or bath. In the summer, I find it so refreshing to take cold showers and add a few drops of lemon or another citrus aroma. You can also diffuse essential oils in your workspace, car, or home, for instant feelings of calm, happiness, and relaxation.

3. Balancing Mindful Practices

Combine the calming effects of aromatherapy with mindfulness practices such as deep breathing, yoga, or meditation for a holistic, stress-relieving experience. Creating a calming space at home with a diffuser and your favorite essential oils can help enhance the benefits that these practices offer and induce a deeper level of rejuvenation and relaxation.

4. Radiate From Within

Incorporating essential oils into your skincare rituals, like adding a few drops to a steamed towel compress to remove your cleansers, exfoliants, and masks can help you deeply relax and enjoy mindfulness. When we are relaxed and stress-

free, we have a natural healthy glow that radiates from within.

5. Customize Your Facial, Massage, or Body Treatment with Aromatherapy at Citron

It’s essential to carve out time for rest, rejuvenation, and to relieve stress. Adding a facial, massage, or body treatment to your calendar once per month is the prefect pick-me-up. Each of our spa treatments is wellness-focused and incorporates various stress-relieving techniques such as relaxation massage, steamed towel compresses, soothing music, and soft candlelight. We also include customized aromatherapy with each service, providing a rejuvenating experience tailored to your mood and well-being that day.

Remember, your well-being is your top priority, and incorporating aromatherapy into your daily routine can be a great step towards a more balanced and stress-free life- resulting in inner peace and a radiant glow.
