Whether you want to feel energised before going to work or relax in your bedroom, aromatherapy is a great way to manage your emotions and pick you up, no matter what your circumstances are. For example, a study found that sniffing rosemary essential oils improves cognitive performance such as concentration, speed and accuracy, while others found vanilla oil to be a great source of antioxidant, antibacterial agent, and antidepressant materials.
But how can you do aromatherapy and make use of these ingredients at home? Here are a few ways to make an aromatherapy, all DIY!
