The craze for Clean Beauty means there are more and more products inspired by aromatherapy. What particular qualities do they have? What can they add to your beauty ritual? Find out here.
The term “aromatherapy” was invented at the beginning of the 20th century by chemist René-Maurice Gattefossé. This French researcher devoted part of his career to examining the curative properties of essential oils, which are distilled aromatic plant extracts. It’s believed that their scents can stimulate receptors in the nose that carry messages to the brain — to reduce stress, for example. They also have beneficial effects on the skin and hair. That’s what makes them excellent ingredients for cosmetics… and great allies for cocooning!
Essential oils are combined with ingredients like honey, beeswax, mineral salts or vegetable oils (argan, jojoba, almond, macadamia, etc.) in natural formulas for the face and body. Essential oils have special properties that are used to combat signs of aging, reduce blemishes, prevent dehydration or soothe irritation. And because they work well in synergy (in unison with other active ingredients), they make a great addition to other skin-care products. Simply add a few drops to a cream or serum to create your own personalized formula.
Some hair-care products also include aromatic essences that are nourishing, enhance shine or prevent aging. For more targeted action, choose oils that have specific properties for fighting dandruff, soothing irritation of the scalp, regulating sebum production… Best of all, they’re easily added to your shampoo, hair mask or rinse-free spray.
If essential oils aren’t listed among the ingredients of your hair- or skin-care products, you can add them yourself! It’s as simple as adding a few drops of your favourite essential oil in your shampoo or daily moisturizer.
Be careful! Never apply essential oils directly to your skin: very few of them can be safely used alone, that is, without being diluted with another oil or cream. Before using a pure oil for the first time, read the warnings and contraindications.
Setting aside some me-time? Think aromatic oils! Relax in a bubble bath, treat yourself to a massage with a soothing oil and scent the air with the vapour from a diffuser.
Spa well, every day.
