Everyone feels down and needs a boost from time-to-time. But, if you find your low points are getting the better of you all too often then take note, we have found some solutions.
Essential oils get in to your blood stream quickly and can be massaged into your skin, added to a bath, inhaled or vaporised in an insense burner (one caveat, if you are pregnant you must check with your midwife what is safe for you to use). Ylang Ylang is used in aromatherapy to relax both mind and body and even as an anti-depressant. Try Neal’s Yard Remedies Ylang Ylang Organic, £7.45 for 10ml. Chamomile doesn’t just aid sleep (although lack of sleep could well be contributing to your poor mood), but it can also help to soothe anxiety. Try Neal’s Yard Remedies Chamomile Blue Organic, £20.30 for 10ml. Another favourite of the Aromatherapist is Rosemary; it’s uplifting and gives you an energy boost.
