9 Aromatherapy Oils to Soothe Your Mind and Skin

You and your skin both deserve a little R&R right now.

If you’re feeling down right now, we want you to know that you’re not alone. During stressful times like these, trips to the Russian banya or Korean day spa would have been the remedy to assuage all of our issues. Unfortunately, we cannot go and sit in a sauna, where a middle-aged Russian man throws water onto scorching stones to produce steam. We cannot get slapped repeatedly by eucalyptus leaves (which is actually very soothing), and we cannot enjoy a bibimbap in between a hot stone massage and a dive in the pool.

So what can we do? Well, we can start off by bringing the scent of the spa to us. During our time of social distancing, we have found some welcome respite in our skin-care routines. Why shouldn’t we include aromatic products into our routines for some stress relief, as well? Aromatherapy has the ability to relieve anxiety, clear the mind, and even reduce physical ailments that we may be experiencing (say, from working at your kitchen table for weeks on end). Here are some of our favorite products that combine the benefits of aromatherapy and skin-care all into one package.

UMA Oils Pure Calm Wellness Body Oil, $90

Living in New York City means we are no strangers to calming products to help us unwind after long and tiring days. We love this product by UMA Oils, which contains roman chamomile essential oil to alleviate anxiety. This oil also does a great job of locking moisture into the skin after a soothing bath or steamy shower.
