Aromatherapy is the practice of using natural plant oils and botanical materials to enhance psychological and physical well-being. It’s amazing how our nose feeds our brain with catalysts that are transformed into very specific messages sent to other parts of our body to spur improvements in our mood and even our physical condition. It’s not voodoo… our brains are wired so that smell, sound, sight, and touch impact our inner balance.
When most people think of aromatherapy they imagine it being an event like at a day spa. This then leads them to thinking about the time and money it takes for such an experience. For most the next step is to brush the whole idea aside as being impractical.
At New Harmony Soap Company we integrate aromatherapy into your lifestyle and into your day. Start your morning with a Skin Nutrition Body Bar in the shower and you’ll have an instant aromatherapy session. Follow that up with our After Shower Nutrition Mist or Everyday All Over Lotion and the aromatherapy will continue as you drive to work, clean the house, or go shopping.
Each day before I walk to work I spritz my face with our Aftershave for Men. As I walk, I breathe in fresh, crisp air along with the aromas of Virginia Cedar, Eucalyptus, and Clove. These plant oils energize me, help me focus, and clarify my thoughts. During winter months they also help me deal with nasal congestion and a compromised upper respiratory system.
We encourage you to make aromatherapy part of your lifestyle. The soaps and body care products at New Harmony Soap Company are affordable, practical, and effective for this purpose (and many others that we’ll discuss in future articles).
