If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.” 
 Amit Ray

If you ever experience stress, brain fog, or feel drained, this is for you.

A lot of people don't know this but breathwork and aromatherapy are designed to be used together. It's called AromaBreathwork.

Let's get into the top 3 benefits of using aromatherapy and breathwork together.

 

Plus, there are 3 tutorials included below to help you get started!

 

1 : Heal the Nervous System

We live in a society where the 'go-go-go mentality' has become the commonly accepted mindset of success. This keeps your nervous system on edge.

When you bring presence back into your day through using aromatherapy and breathwork together, it’s an active resistance to the notion that ’busy = success’, thus taking steps towards healing your nervous system.

Why heal the nervous system?

The nervous system is connected to almost all of your body's functions. When it's out of whack, you'll start to experience lots of "mystery issues" when really, it is not a mystery at all. It's a collective decision we've made as a society (and programming) to live our lives at an unaturally fast rate, resulting in high anxiety and stress.

2: Decrease Stress Hormones

Aromatherapy, even on its own, has showen to adjust the activity in the brain and reduce stress hormones like cortisol. Breathwork has been shown to do the same. This is why using these two practices together is so powerful when it comes to stress relief.

What part of the brain is responsible for this stress relief? It's called the Limbic System.

Why nourish the limbic system?

Have you ever had an overflowing filing cabinet and never had the time to sit down and organize all the papers, tabs, and folders? Think of the Limbic System as that disorganized filing cabinet. When left untended, we keep adding more files, more papers, more tabs, more stress... to deal with later.

Limbic System = the key

The Limbic System also known as the Emotional Seat, is responsible for storing your emotional experiences, memories, and sending sensory signals to your brain. Aromatherapy and breathwork are highly effective on the Limbic System, making them the perfect duo to press 'reset' on your emotional state.

This is the key to relieve stress, support focus, and clear space for creativity.

3: Brain Fog and Racing Thoughts Subside

Brain fog and/or racing thoughts are way too common for a number of reasons nowadays. One of the reasons they are a big problem is because, as humans, we struggle with staying present. We're always either reliving the past or worrying about the future. When we avoid the present, anxiety and stress are right there, waiting to take the wheel.

What's the result?

The result of reliving the past or worrying about the future can land you on one of two places. 

Brain Fog or Racing Thoughts

Wherever you land, I think we can all agree that neither are any fun.

PRESENCE IS THE PRESENT... PUN INTENDED

Through aromatherapy and breathwork, you are transported back into the present moment through a combination of science (brain wave activity), and nervous system regulation.

When you use aromatherapy with breathwork, you can finally tell the mental chaos and brain fog to take a seat.
