Today, we’re talking aromatherapy. How I have personally incorporated them into my life, their benefits, and why they work. I’m also shining a light onto one incredible farm-to-bottle brand that creates exceptionally potent formulas.
The olfactory sense is 10,000 times more sensitive than any other senses. Our response to smell is immediate, as it directly extends to the brain and to our central nervous system. Scents can have a powerful impact on our well-being. It can arouse strong emotions, that can be both positive and/or negative. This is where aromatherapy comes in.
My introduction to aromatherapy began in my early teens. I suffered from anxiety, panic and sleep disturbances since a young age. A dear friend, whose father practiced a holistic lifestyle, gifted me a bottle of lavender oil. It was then, that I learned just how powerful plant-derived essences can be. I began a journey into the world of aromatherapy, researching different essences and creating my own blends. I also learned that not all oils are alike, and that is important to find a brand that carefully bottles up essences in their purest forms.
I present to you Uma Oil difference.
Uma is a line of luxury skincare and wellness oils of 100% natural and organic origin. What makes Uma Oils different? Uma’s blend of essential oils are grown, extracted, formulated and bottled entirely on the family estate of founder, Shrankhla Holecek. Every process from seed to bottle is overseen by Uma’s team of experts. Great care is placed upon seed selection, while each plant is only harvested twice before replanting, thus yielding the highest quality essential oils. The essential oils are blended with the minimal amount of carrier oil for the most potent, high impact blend of essential oils. They also win for most aesthetically pleasing packaging.
After speaking with the company, we decided that the Pure Energy Wellness Oil* would be the perfect match for me. As someone who now suffers with Chronic Fatigue, along with Fibromyalgia, this energizing blend of oils seemed like just the boost I needed.
The Pure Energy Wellness oil* contains rosemary, ylang ylang, frankincense, patchouli, peppermint, ginger, basil, clary sage, and jasmine essential oils, in a jojoba and evening primrose base. This blend was created to naturally fight fatigue, boost energy, stimulate mental alertness, and to be used as a natural alternative to caffeine.
My day starts by applying Pure Energy to the bottoms of my feet, and pulse points (as suggested). I then take a moment to inhale deeply and gather myself. A little goes a long way, as this formula is indeed potent. I imagine that the 1 oz. bottle will last me quite a while. Pure Energy undoubtedly provides me with a well needed energy boost. It works in ways caffeine can’t, without the side effects, and the results are instantaneous. This blend helps to wash away my mental fog, leaving me more focused, and more productive at work (for that I’m eternally grateful). It a great option for an afternoon pick-me-up, pre and post-workout boost, for use during a cleanse, and any other time you just need a healthy boost. It’s no doubt that Uma Oils are of exceptional quality and that their blends are thoughtfully created.
