Essential oils have the ability to alter our emotional and mental state, as well as encouraging physical reactions in the body, like increasing our energy levels, improving focus and helping us to de-stress and drift off.
But what is the best way to experience them?
Adding a few drops to an Aroma Spa Diffuser can calm environments and aid everything from a restful night’s sleep to an elevated mood. And we all know what a well-fragranced massage can do for our soul.
But if you really want to experience the power of essential oils, it’s worth pairing them with your pulse points, says Jo Kellett, Tisserand Aromatherapy Essential Oil Expert. “Your pulse points are the parts of the body where your blood is closest to your skin. Applying here allows for fast absorption and quicker results.”
Which pulse points should I apply to?
To maximise the benefit of both your olfactory senses and your pulse points, it’s best to place the essential oils where your nose can still get a whiff. Jo says, “You can apply the roller ball to several places on your body: temples, wrists, behind the ears. Or where your collar bone joins to your sternum (at the base of your throat). Here you will find the perfect dip – just the right size for a rollerball application.”
Best application tips
Jo says, “My inner wrists are my go-to spot as I bring them up to my nose and inhale the blend directly. Wherever you apply it, always take a moment to inhale the aroma. Breathing in slowly for four seconds and then out slowly for four. Close your eyes for a moment and focus on the fragrance and concentrate on the feeling of taking a restorative breath. Even just a few repetitions can offer the most transformative effect”.
