There are times when we all need to Relax, and whether that is a temporary wish, or represents an ongoing issue that is preventing good relaxation, like disturbed night time sleeping, everyday stress etc there are potentially many Essential oils and aroma products that may help you achieve this. This guidance is just that and it is not to replace professional advice that should always be sought first from a General Practitioner (Medical Doctor) if a condition is considered serious.
We have made for many years what we believe to be blends/products that could aid relaxation.
Meadows Relax Synergy blend, from an odour perspective is best described as a Herbal, with Lavender notes and earth Vetiver.
This synergy blend can be used in a vaporiser, massage or bathing-please follow carefully the instructions that accompany the product. This synergy blend is used in a Bath Salts and pre-blended massage oil
As a 'rule of thumb' the more sedative oils are the ones that are seen as base notes and if you already have some essential oils in your collection then there is more than likely to be some suitable oils for relaxation. On our detailed leaflets we use the Triangle on the leaflet with some shading to indicate the typical values of its top, middle or base note values. Some companies to state in a definitive way where a product is top, middle or base, but we believe this is a slightly inaccurate way of categorising items and hence why we launched our triangle scheme.
There are many ways essential oils can help you to Relax and often the word ‘Holistic’ is used in our world, and that of Alternative and Complimentary treatments and without spending too much time on this we suggest that root causes of tiredness, stress’s are reflected on and changed, as well as food choices, exercise or lack of it etc etc.
