Stress is part of life especially in today’s fast paced society with media constantly available offering immediate communication, 24-hour news from around the world as well as the temptation to scroll through social media, sometimes making it difficult to switch off and truly relax.
At this time of year many people are sitting exams or trying to finish off dissertations or coursework which can also be stress inducing. A natural way to try and combat feelings of stress is by using essential oils as a stress relieving tool.
Whether you like to light a candle, add a few drops to your bath with scent or use a diffuser. The scents below can help you on your way to feeling calm.
This is a popular essential oil and is often used to help promote sleep and reduce stress due to its comforting aroma, it contains linalool which has been shown to help lower blood pressure and reduce anxiety. Neom use lavender in their Perfect Night’s Sleep collection.
The NEOM Real Luxury range (De-stress) does just that; this one is not just lavender but is incorporated with beautiful sensuous Jasmine and a musky Brazilian Rosewood, creating an earthy, deeply calming aroma.
Try lighting a candle at the end of the day along with the scent and watching the flame flicker away. It is enough to help you feel relaxed enough to drift off into a dreamy sleep and let all the worries of the day disappear.
Jasmine has a sweet and delicate scent which is also refreshing. Due to its rejuvenating properties Neom have blended it into their Real Luxury scent. Jasmine is known for creating a sense of calm for those who often feel anxious, tense or on edge.
A boost to your mood on those days where you can’t seem to get motivated, orange with its citrus and zesty scent is a good one for mornings or in the afternoons when your energy disappears, this cheerful and sunny oil will give your mood a lift – much better than a cup of coffee!
