How to improve well-being in your home with aromatherapy

One of the most satisfying things about using Comfort is the beautiful scent it gives your wash. More than just a pleasant smell, fragrance can help to improve your mood and well-being. Aromatherapy uses essential oils and plant extracts for just this purpose. You can use these scents in the familiar surroundings of home, helping to ease the symptoms of a common cold or to inspire a bit of refreshing energy. What's more it makes your place smell gorgeous. What's not to love?

Combat a cold

One way of helping with the sniffles is with a powerful scent. Cold symptoms can be soothed with peppermint or eucalyptus oil. To reap the benefits, put a drop on a tissue and place it in your pocket. Ahh, bliss!

Inspire a good night’s sleep

Fragrance can help you feel more restful at night. Burn mandarin essential oil in a diffuser before you go bed or place a few drops on cotton wool balls and hang them up in front of the air vents in your home.

Bathe in a smile

What better way of saying goodbye to a hectic day than enjoying the smell of a woody oil like sandalwood. Put nine drops in a full bath or light some sandalwood scented candles.

Energise yourself

Rosemary is a scent that is said to be uplifting. Try it in a diffuser, when you put a few drops of oil in water and light a tea light candle underneath.

Joyful inspiration

Getting together with friends and family? It’s a great time to enhance the festive spirit with fragrances of citrus oils like lime, lemon and orange. Add some to a spray bottle of water, shake and spray.

Wear your favourite scent

Having a scent on your clothes is a great way to feel confident, refreshed and revitalised. It also acts as a mood enhancer, which can help you feel more relaxed throughout the day.

At Comfort, we understand how important fragrance is to the well-being of your family, so we’ve drawn inspiration from aromatherapy for some our ranges.
