What can Aromatherapy achieve?
The smell of the blend induces a feeling of deep relaxation which can lower stress and anxiety, relieve insomnia and depression, enhancing your mood, creating balance and well-being. It speeds up the healing process and boosts the immune, respiratory and circulation system.
Properties of essential oils include anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, anti-viral and immunostimulant.
