Uplifting Essential Oils

 

Plant oils extracted from flowers, trees, bushes, and herbs can be used to assist with a wide variety of ailments. The use of essential oils in our everyday lives can uplift our moods and invigorate our senses. Essential oils can have a really positive benefit on your mood, and just smelling the aroma can get you out of the doldrums and help you feel better. This is because as soon as you smell an essential oil, the nose sends the signal immediately to your limbic system – the part of the brain that deals with emotion. Smelling a good oil is the quickest way to alter your mood, the key is knowing which oils to use.

Using an aromatherapy diffuser with oils has become very popular, and for good reason. It can fill the atmosphere with slow-release essential oils and have positive benefits on emotional and physical health all day long. Many of the citrus oils are uplifting and can positively affect your mood. Here is a list of my top 10 essential oils that can assist your moods

Using the wrong type of moisturiser for your skin type could make your skin look worse over time. For example, choosing a cream that is too heavy can drag down delicate and fine skin, and can also cause spots in acne-type skin.  If you pick one that is too light, then this can lead to dry skin and more wrinkles. Happily, Penny Price Aromatherapy makes a wonderful skincare range called Illuminous, which has the perfect moisturiser for each different type of skin.
