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.

Eminence Organic Skin Care Facial Recovery Oil, $76

There are a plethora of products available that help us unwind after a long day, but what about that same soothing energy to start? This oil is a great addition to your morning routine, as olive and sesame oil both penetrate deeply into the skin to moisturize. The eucalyptus, tea tree, and rosemary oils all work to clarify the skin. We also suggest breathing deeply for a soothing aromatherapy experience.
