‘Best aroma diffusers to refresh your home and calm your senses.’ Article in The Mirror
I am delighted to be featured as a Clinical Aromatherapist in an article in The Mirror discussing my favourite aromatherapy oils.
Geraldine McCullagh, a registered Clinical Aromatherapist at Me-Time Therapies, says:
“When we breathe in a scent, it triggers a reaction in the part of our brain (limbic system) and sets off a reaction in our bodies such as feeling calm or energised. The limbic system also associates smells with emotion and memories.
“People tend to like the fruity-floral aroma of bergamot, which can result in feeling relaxed and their spirits uplifted. Lavender reduces muscle tension and is regularly used to aid sleep. Geranium helps us to feel emotionally balanced and helps to reduce anxiety caused by stress and overwork. Citrus scents are associated with an uplifting mood… For example, orange is sometimes called ‘sunshine in a bottle’, due to making people feel joyful and positive. Frankincense can create a sense of peace, helping people have time to breathe and be still.”
