Discover the Power of Rose Scent with Candier

Aromatherapy – it’s a pretty polarizing term. To some, it’s accepted as an ancient holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Others however, dismiss it as just another hollow buzzword. So, which is it? Well, turns out there is a bunch of evidence to show that it actually does work!

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Aromatherapy works through the sense of smell and skin absorption; using products like essential oil rollerballs, bath salts, diffusers and essential oil candles.

The key to aromatherapy is the use of purely extracted essential oils from various plants. These oils can have a wide array of effects, from promoting relaxation and reducing stress, to energizing and uplifting the spirit. Different oils have different uses and effects, and they can be used alone, or blended together to enhance their therapeutic properties

So, are there Scientifically Proven Benefits of Aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is one of those topics that you hear works anecdotally, but you don’t really hear about the solid science to back it up. So you’re probably wondering “is there evidence to back up the claims?” especially if you’re looking for emotional health tips. The short answer is “yes”! There are scientific studies that suggest aromatherapy can provide benefits for certain conditions; particularly, in reducing symptoms of anxiety and stress, pain management and improving sleep. 

  1. Anxiety and Stress Relief: Aromatherapy is commonly used to help alleviate stress and anxiety. Some clinical studies like this one have found that essential oils like jasmine have been effective in reducing anxiety in various high stress settings, such as in dental patients or before surgical procedures (so pretty anxiety-inducing situations!). 
  2. Sleep and Insomnia: There is evidence suggesting that certain essential oils can help improve sleep quality. This is believed to be due to the relaxing effects of scents like lavender, which might help regulate sleep patterns. It’s no coincidence that our Candier Moods GIRL GO TO SLEEP essential oil rollerball contains a heavy dose of natural lavender.
  3. Pain Management: Some studies suggest that aromatherapy can help with pain management. For example, it has been used as an adjunctive treatment for conditions like menstrual pain and postoperative pain, showing some benefits.

Obligatory disclaimer: It’s important to keep in mind that the scientific community isn’t totally aligned (are they ever?) on the efficacy of essential oils and there’s still a lot of debate around the topic. Before starting any new treatment or therapy, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional to ensure it is safe and appropriate for your specific health needs.

Spotlight on Aromatherapy: Rose Essential Oil

Rose essential oil, derived from the petals of various types of roses, is renowned in aromatherapy for its extensive range of benefits. This oil is not only loved for its timeless and elegant fragrance, but also for its therapeutic properties that can positively affect both the mind and body. Here are some of the primary aromatherapy benefits associated with rose essential oil:

  1. Emotional Well-being: Rose oil is often used to elevate mood and combat feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression. Its comforting scent is thought to help soothe the emotions and promote feelings of happiness and contentment.
  2. Relaxation: The fragrance of rose oil is known for its relaxing properties, helping to calm the mind and reduce overall stress levels. It can be particularly beneficial for creating a peaceful environment conducive to sleep.
  3. Skincare Benefits: Rose oil has antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which can be beneficial for skin health. It's often used in skincare to help improve the complexion, reduce redness, and calm skin conditions such as acne and rosacea.
  4. Hormonal Balance: Rose oil is sometimes used to help regulate hormone levels and relieve symptoms of PMS and menopause. It is believed to help alleviate cramps, mood swings, hormonal-related anxiety and are all-round natural mood enhancers.
  5. Antibacterial and Antioxidant Properties: Rose oil has natural antibacterial abilities, making it a supportive addition to home care regimens aimed at reducing pathogens. Additionally, its antioxidant properties can help protect the body’s cells from oxidative stress.
  6. Pain Relief: Some studies suggest that rose oil has analgesic properties that may help in reducing pain, particularly headaches and menstrual cramps.
  7. Heart Health and Blood Pressure: There is some evidence to suggest that rose oil can have a positive effect on blood pressure and can help in promoting heart health by reducing stress and anxiety levels.
  8. Respiratory Relief: The soothing properties of rose oil can also aid in easing respiratory conditions by calming inflammation in the throat and helping to clear up congestion.

Rose oil is typically used in diluted forms due to its potency. It can be found in aromatherapy products, massage oils, facial creams, and, commonly, in scented candles where its evocative scent enhances the atmosphere while providing its therapeutic effects.
