Ahh, wedding season. (That was a relaxing ahh, not a screaming one!) With months of preparation and lots of details to work out, weddings can be one of life’s most stressful – and most memorable – events. Luckily, aromatherapy and essential oils are here to help make that special day unforgettable and more enjoyable.
Our sense of smell is the first sense to develop and is actually wired differently in our brain than other senses. This special connection is why smells are more closely tied to memories and emotions. By including essential oils throughout your planning and ceremony, you can give your wedding a signature aroma that will impress guests and leave a lasting impact on this momentous day.
Getting all of your ducks in a row is a very tall order for weddings. There are lots of decisions to be made and often lots of people involved. It’s easy to start feeling overwhelmed while getting things ready and that’s the first place essential oils can come to the rescue. Ease the stress of organizing and planning the big day by using one of the following EOs well known for their calming and relaxing qualities. Dilute or diffuse to create a restful atmosphere that will also leave you recharged and ready to make decisions.
- Walk the Lime™
- Wild Orange
- Ylang Ylang
