This blog post will cover everything about aromatherapy soaps and their benefits.
What Are Aromatherapy Soaps?
First of all, what are aromatherapy soaps?
Aromatherapy soaps are soaps that are made out of essential oils, such as lavender, jasmine, and other beautifully scented oils. These oils are extracted from various plants and herbs, therefore they are not only natural but have also been proven to reduce stress, anxiety and other health issues.
Aromatherapy soaps are used as part of aromatherapy, an age-old practice. Aromatherapy is an alternative therapeutic process that uses a combination of essential oils, aromatherapy soaps, and aromatic salts to reduce stress and promote relaxation.
Benefits of Aromatherapy Soaps
- They Are Natural A major benefit of aromatherapy soaps is that they are much more natural due to the fact that they are scented with natural oils.
Given that aromatherapy soaps are natural, this means they tend to be much less harsh on the skin because they are not scented with various chemical agents. As such, they are a great option for those with more sensitive skin, such as those with eczema or skin allergies.
On top of this, aromatherapy soaps are also a more eco-friendly option.
- Beneficial For the SkinNot only are aromatherapy soaps beneficial for certain skin conditions like eczema due to the fact that aromatherapy soaps are free of harsh-scented perfumes, but certain essential oils can be very beneficial for all skin types.
Green tea essential oil, for example, can be anti-aging. Jasmine has also been known to reduce the appearance of stretch marks and other various scars. Some essential oils have very moisturizing properties.
- Promote RelaxationAs you saw above, aromatherapy soaps that are infused with various calming essential oils like lavender and chamomile promote relaxation as you use them in the shower or bath.
These essential oils are also absorbed into the skin, which means that they can also relieve physical tension in the body.
- Other ApplicationsEssential oils have a number of different properties that can make them useful for other applications, such as insect bites or sunburns.
Jasmine, for example, has been known to reduce depression. Lavender has been proven beneficial for reducing headaches and insomnia. The list goes on.
