Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (March 31, 2021) - Wellness enthusiasts can learn about the power of essential oils at home with Velas Resorts' new aromatherapy guide for beginners. Along with highlighting the history of essential oils, the award-winning Mexican resort collection shares how travelers can create their very own aromatherapy kit.
Created in the 20th century by French chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé, natural essential oils are made from fragrances extracted from plants, seeds or fruit. Highly aromatic in nature, essential oils can help improve energy, aid digestion, strengthen the immune system, reduce stress and anxiety, and much more. Traditionally, essential oils are best inhaled or applied on the skin to receive their benefits.
As part of Velas Resorts' Aromatherapy Guide for Beginners, found on Velas Magazine, highlighted below are five popular essential oils and their benefits.
Lavender: Recognized as a natural painkiller, lavender helps combat insomnia and reduces stress and tensions. Sprinkle a few droplets of the oil on a pillow or add into a diffuser to encourage relaxation before sleep.
Rosemary: Known to help relieve muscular and rheumatic pain. The oil is great for massages as it helps activate the digestive system to remove toxins and increases blood circulation.
Chamomile: Boasting calming, anti-inflammatory, and pain-relieving properties, chamomile can help irritated skin and stomach aches. Additionally, its sweet aroma can enhance sleep and relax muscles.
Orange: Fresh and aromatic, orange helps stimulate and enhance the mind and memory capabilities. Use it in the morning to start the day feeling energetic and refreshed.
Eucalyptus: Along with being an ideal expectorant for some respiratory ailments, eucalyptus helps clear the mind and stimulate the senses to improve concentration. Use in work environments or at the office to encourage focus and concentration.
