Aromatherapy FAQs

Aromatherapy is the practice of using essential oils to influence your body and mood, and can help you to feel energised, focused or relaxed, depending on what type of essential oil you use.

Many people use aromatherapy to create ambience at home using an electronic diffuser.

Aromatherapy can also be used to aid restful sleep. If you struggle to fall asleep at night, try using some of our essential oils for sleep.

Essential oils are concentrated natural extracts, distilled from plants, roots or flowers, and are used for aromatherapy practices.

Many people use essential oils in an electronic diffuser to create ambience at home. You can also use essential oils in the bath, for massage, and to make natural beauty products.

Pure essential oils contain only the oil of the extract named. For example, pure lavender essential oil will only contain oil from the lavender plant.

Blended essential oils contain a blend of two or more pure essential oils. For example, a sleep essential oil blend will contain pure lavender oil and pure tangerine oil, amongst others.

Essential oils can be used in a variety of ways at home or on the go.

Diffuser: Use an electronic diffuser to fill any room with your favourite scent.

Massage: Add any essential oil to a base oil, such as avocado or almond oil, and use for a relaxing body massage. Always dilute the essential oil with a base oil according to the pack instructions.

Bath: Add a few drops of essential oil to your evening bath for a relaxing aromatherapy experience.

Home cleaning: Use essential oils to make your own eco-cleaning products, such as surface spray or carpet cleaner.

A diffuser is an electronic device used to disperse the aroma of essential oils. Simply put, the diffuser omits a fine mist scented with essential oils into the room. It’s a convenient way of deodorising a room without using chemical diffusers or scented candles.

You can use a diffuser to infuse the air with the scent of any essential oil — try our Breathe Easy blend, for a refreshing aroma of eucalyptus and peppermint.

Finding an essential oil that helps you to drift off can be personal — it all depends on what scents you find relaxing, so try out a few aromas and blends to find the right one for you.

Traditionally, floral oils like lavender, chamomile, and geranium, and citrus oils like tangerine and bergamot, tend to promote a calming environment. You’ll find a blend of these essential oils in our Sleep Essential Oil.

To benefit from an essential oil for better sleep, use your preferred oil in a diffuser before bedtime. Alternatively, sprinkle a few drops of essential oil on your pillowcase or try a pillow spray.

Aromatherapy is a great way to unwind after a stressful day. Using essential oils can help you to feel balanced by making you focus on your breathing while remaining present in the moment.

Trying these calming essential oils to instil a tranquil mood:

Lavender Essential Oil has a soothing scent that may help you feel calm and grounded.

Patchouli Essential Oil has an earthy scent that works well for meditation.

Calming Essential Oil combines several oils, including orange, ylang ylang, and chamomile, to create a soothing blend.

Suffering with headaches? Try using some of these essential oils for natural relief.

Peppermint: Sweet and refreshing, peppermint oil has soothing properties due to the menthol. Use a roller ball on your temples for a cooling effect.

Eucalyptus: This invigorating oil is commonly used to clear blocked sinuses and airways. If your headaches are sinus related, try inhaling eucalyptus oil to refresh the senses.

Rosemary: Herby and purifying, rosemary oil is often associated with pain relief. Add to a base oil and use for a neck and shoulder massage to relieve tension.
