Stop to smell the roses…

or the lavender and chamomile the scents of which are known to stimulate production of serotonin the relaxing brain chemical associated with relieving depression.

Essential oils used in aromatherapy such as  Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Neroli, Geranium or Bergamot are also used to induce calm and reduce tension.

Combined with massage, aromatherapy has to be one of the most relaxing and soothing ways to spend an hour of pure indulgent “me” time.

Have a massage (Patrick Lindsay)

Never underestimate the power of touch.
It reassures and soothes,
relaxes and revitalises.
In expert hands, it nourishes and restores body and spirit.
It brings great satisfaction to giver and receiver.
