While many believe skincare is about tackling issues of the skin, we believe that skincare rituals are in fact agents of self-care that have taken the role of nurturing our skin and minds. That said, aromatherapy and skincare rituals almost go hand in hand. Aromatherapy is the use of naturally extracted essences to balance, harmonise and promote inner calm for the mind, body and skin. Natural scents can have a positive impact on our emotional and physical well-being when used in skincare and our beauty routines.
Fragrance has a direct bearing on our memories and emotions, triggering our senses and making aromatic products a mood-booster. For example, lemon stimulates, lavender soothes and rosemary boosts concentration. When these essential oils come in contact with the skin, the heat from our body activates the molecules of oil and releases its healing properties. Active, plant-based essential oils are loaded with benefits that help soothe, tone, purify and rejuvenate the skin.
Not only that, plant-based essential oils also do not need any preservatives, saving your skincare arsenal and your body from synthetic ingredients and parabens. The power of aromatherapy is in calming the mind and skincare is about how you feel at the end of the day.
So now you know, it’s time to light a candle, dim the lights, spritz your face, draw a bath and slip into your zen state. You heard it here: it's time to get on the aromatherapy boat ASAP!
