Any of these sound familiar? Create work-life balance. Eat a balanced diet. Maintain your hormonal balance. Have a clean balance sheet. Balance your checkbook. (Do people even still have checkbooks?) Manage the balance of power in relationships. The car tires need balancing. Make sure you have a balanced financial portfolio. Our future hangs in the balance.
Life is a balancing act. Too much of one thing and not enough of another, and life can end up all out of whack, leaving us feeling frazzled and depressed. Fortunately, there are a variety of ways we can achieve balance in our lives: practicing yoga or meditation; exercising and getting out in nature; doing something creative like drawing, writing, or jewelry making. Taking some time to decide what your priorities are and then making an effort to keep those priorities in the correct order can help immensely.
No matter how you do it, achieving balance is a worthy cause. Our new Rosemary Lavender scent collection can help you get there, and you’ll smell really good along the way. Out of the approximately 300 commercially imported and traded essential oils in the world, rosemary and lavender are two of the most popular. Both these botanical fragrances have unique benefits for the mind and body.
Inhalation studies have shown invigorating rosemary essential oil increases mental energy and memory performance as well as boosts brain wave activity and overall mood. It also positively affects autonomic nervous system responses such as blood pressure, heart and breathing rates, body temperature, digestion, and metabolism. Early research suggests that breathing rosemary essential oils may improve brain function in older adults with dementia, including those with Alzheimer’s disease.
Rosemary essential oil is an effective antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antifungal, and antiviral. When regularly applied, rosemary essential oil can cause a significant improvement in skin hydration and elasticity. Topical application helps in toning the skin and removing dryness. Its antimicrobial and antiseptic qualities make it beneficial in efforts to eliminate eczema, dermatitis, dandruff, and acne.
Calming lavender essential oil is widely known for its soothing fragrance and its ability to help increase the feeling of relaxation and peacefulness. Studies have found that lavender can decrease anxiety and stress, and enhance sleep. Because of its calming properties, when inhaled, lavender can help you maintain focus for extended periods of time, ultimately reducing the number of accidents due to human error.
Like rosemary essential oil, lavender is an effective anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial. When regularly applied to the skin, it too can be helpful in addressing skin problems such as acne, dermatitis, rosacea, and scarring. Lavender is also known for improving skin’s hydration and elasticity.
A Yin Yang Combination
The combination of rosemary and lavender essential oils has been proven to decrease the stress hormone cortisol. Cortisol is one of the main stress hormones that is released during the body's response to stress. Chronic stress can cause an excess amount of cortisol in the blood that can wreak havoc on the body, including its hormonal balance and metabolism.
These two essential oils produce a unique, herbaceous fragrance that is invigorating and calming at the same time. Their aromatherapy and topical benefits are the perfect addition to the other high-quality, luxurious ingredients in our body care line.
