What Is Mental Health?

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.

Over the course of your life, if you experience mental health problems, your thinking, mood, and behavior could be affected. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including:

How Does Aromatherapy helps in mental illness

Aromatherapy used in any of its forms can help to relieve stress. Since aromatherapy employs the use of scent to affect how people feel, it is important to understand how this works on the body.

When we inhale air, particularly air that is infused with essential oils, it goes to the roof of our nose. Olfactory receptors in the nose then transport the information to the limbic system. The limbic system is where our emotions are processed. One reason it is believed that aromatherapy can be helpful, especially when treating stress, is that it stimulates the release of certain chemicals in the brain that can help people relax. This is why aromatherapy can help to relieve stress.

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being both physically and mentally. It’s more often than not also called essential oil therapy.

Aromatherapy uses aromatic essential oils medicinally to improve the health of the body, mind, and spirit. While this method of healing has been passed down from generations across the globe, aromatherapy has gained more recognition in the fields of science and medicine recently.

Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption using products such as thes\e:

· Inhalers

· bathing salts

· body oils, creams, or lotions for massage or topical application

· facial steamers

· hot and cold compressers

· clay masks

Each essential oil has an array of unique healing properties, uses, and effects. Essential oils used in aromatherapy are typically extracted from various parts of plants and then distilled. Combining essential oils to create a synergistic blend creates even more benefits.
Benefits such as:

· manage pain, treat headaches and migraine

· improve sleep quality

· reduce stress, agitation, and anxiety

· soothe sore joints

· treat headaches and migraines

· fight bacteria, virus, or fungus

· improve digestion

· boost immunity.

You can use essential oils in any number of ways. For example, add them to body lotions or carrier oils, and then apply them topically. Try enhancing a facial toner, shampoo, or conditioner with essential oils. Or incorporate them into liquid soap, toothpaste, or mouthwash. You can also diffuse or spritz the oils throughout a room or pour them into a bath.

Here are a few popular essential oils:

· Chamomile
