Top 4 Aromatherapeutic Benefits of Floral Essential Oils

1. Reduces Stress and Anxiety

One of the most beneficial impacts of floral aromatherapy is how it can help to reduce stress and anxiety. Have you ever wondered why you always feel ten times better once your seasonal depression gives way to springtime? Well, it doesn't just have to do with the increased hours of sunlight! Budding flowers are jam-packed with aromatherapeutic qualities that not only smell great, but can help you to feel great too!

Some of our favorite floral essential oils are lavender, ylang ylang, clary sage, and geranium--just to name a few. Each of these aromatherapeutic oils is known for its anxiety and stress-reducing properties that are guaranteed to help you feel better, no matter how stressful things may be.

2. Improves Mood

When you feel less stressed, you obviously feel better. But essential oils like clary sage and geranium can also be super beneficial for how they serve as hormone stabilizers, especially for the biological female body. They are able to stabilize mood swings with their calming, grounding effects. Additionally, peony essential oils have mood uplifting aromatherapeutic qualities that serve to promote your emotional well-being.

3. Promotes Relaxation and Sleep

Lavender is arguably one of the most popular essential oils for promoting sleep and overall relaxation--and for good reason! It is known for its ability to calm the central nervous system, which can help to soothe your mind and tired muscles alike. This is also the case for other essential oils like ylang ylang and geranium which have natural sedative properties and can help to fight insomnia so you can get a better night's sleep.

4. Great for Skincare and Haircare

Obviously using essential oils is a form of self-care, but they can also be used as a form of skincare! Some of our favorite floral essential oils are geranium, sweet orange, peony, rose, and calendula. Overall, these essential oils work to improve the overall complexion of your skin, and promote a healthy scalp and hair growth.

Sweet orange essential oils can help protect the skin for sun and pollution damage, while peony essential oil is known to strengthen the skin barrier and acts as a natural alternative for fighting acne. Especially when applied topically, rose and calendula essential oils are amazing for calming the skin and helps with eczema and allergic reactions. And like geranium, rose essential oil had natural anti-aging properties and works to improve your overall skin complexion.
