5 Aromatherapy hacks you’ll actually have time for

Think aromatherapy is fiddly, time-consuming, or a bit of an alternative lifestyle thing? Think again!

Essential oils are an integral tool for a balanced lifestyle, and you can enjoy their many wellness benefits for less effort than you’d imagine.

Here are our favourite aromatherapy hacks for busy lives.

1. Shower upgrade

Pimp your shower routine with this simple hack. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oil blend onto a damp face washer and lay it at the base of the shower. As you enjoy your shower, the hot water will release the oils… an aromatherapy treat for the senses!

One of our favourites for this is our Breathe blend; perfect to clear the senses on a chilly winter morning. But we also love Energy for a burst of motivation when there’s a big day ahead, or our Sleep blend for a wind-down shower before bed.

2. Clever commute

Driving to work or school pickup is nobody’s idea of a good time! Keep a Stress Aroma Mist close by and when you feel your zen fading, give the car interior a quick spritz and take a deep breath in.

Bosisto’s Stress Blend contains Mandarin, May Chang, Lavender, Siberian Fir, Lime and Petitgrain pure essential oils. This combo smells amazing, and it’s a great way to deodorise your car more naturally, too.

3. Scented sanctuary

This one takes a tiny bit of forethought but once you’re set up, you’ll wonder how you ever did without it. Use a diffuser and essential oils to transform your space and set your mood for the day.

At the office, we love a compact diffuser (such as the Compact Stone) with an uplifting blend like Purify, with Lime, Siberian Fir, Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Clove, Peppermint and Lemon.

Another game-changing spot to keep a diffuser? The bathroom! No need for air fresheners when your diffuser is going, and you’ll enjoy the natural aromas many times a day in this often-used space. (Our Destinations blends are bathroom faves, especially fresh Noosa and Bondi.)

4. Roll with it

Never in one spot for very long? We’ve got you. Our Roll-on blends are little sticks of magic which can literally be used anywhere; in the car, in the office, on holidays, on a train, in a queue. Godsend!

Simply roll onto your wrist or other pulse points and take a deep breath to inhale the aroma, as many times as you need during the day.

We’re a big fan of a Stress blend for those moments you really need to pause and decompress.

5. Aroma Pillow

Last but not least, our absolute favourite tip is one literally anyone can incorporate into their lives.

Keep our Sleep Aroma Mist beside your bed and spritz your pillow, and around your room before bed. While you read and wind down, let the natural aromas of Banksia Flower, Nerolina, Lavender and Chamomile calm and soothe you.  It’ll become a ritual you will look forward to at the end of each day.
