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.

African Botanics Neroli Infused Marula Oil, $120

If this product were an astrological sign, it’d be a Capricorn: it makes sure its loved ones (you) are feeling at ease while working hard to protect them (again, you) from any dangers. Neroli flowers are macerated in marula oil, which essentially means that dried flowers are soaked in oil to achieve optimal extraction from the bloom. Neroli works to ease the mind with its floral and spiced notes. Marula oil helps to fight off free radicals with its antioxidants and eliminate breakouts with its antimicrobial properties. That means you’re calm and your skin looks great, too.
