Stress is no longer an affliction of top executives, but a real experience for most people, children included. Life is jam packed with too many ‘have to do’s’, information overload and not enough balance.
Doctors are prescribing sleeping tablets, tranquilizers and anti-anxiety pills, but there is growing dissatisfaction with these treatments. A trend towards natural ways to help with stress conditions has developed in our society.
Aroma as a therapy
Aromas have been used since early Egyptian days to enhance moods and create atmospheres. The last 80 years have seen the rapid rise of aromatherapy, now recognised as a therapeutic discipline.
What a wonderful way to treat stress by inhaling soothing aromas or receiving a therapeutic massage. Lying in a warm aromatic bath certainly trumps dulling the senses and numbing them out with medication.
Whilst aromatherapy does not claim to cure stress or its root cause, it goes far in encouraging feelings of calmness and offers some relief from anxiety.
