We all want our homes to not only look their best but also to be a place that we can retreat from the world and enjoy the calm and comforting surroundings of home in. Having lots of comfortable cushions and blankets, stylish furniture like these Connubia Calligaris chairs and spending some time de-cluttering are all good ways to have a more pleasant and relaxing home. But something else that many people use to have a huge positive effect on their state of mind is aromatherapy.
Using essential oils in the home is a great way to not only keep your home smelling great, but it can also help to boost your mental wellbeing and help you to calm down. Of course, if you have pets, you should be careful of your storage and use of essential oils as they can be toxic.
Here are a few essential oils for you try out at home…
Peppermint – For soothing those over-tired muscles, peppermint is fantastic. The fresh and uplifting scent is not only pleasant, but it can help to clear the mind and give you some focus and clarity too. Great if you are working from home!
