Vanilla is a comforting and balancing scent that has been used for centuries in fragrances and perfumes. Its soothing aroma can be helpful in relieving tension and anxiety, and may help to lower blood pressure. The sedative properties of vanilla oil can induce a tranquilizing effect, and can help to promote sleep when used before bedtime.
Nutmeg is often described as a “winter” oil, due to its warming properties. Used in proper proportions, it’s effective as an analgesic, antiseptic, aphrodisiac, a stimulant, a tonic and anti-oxidant. In aromatherapy, nutmeg is used in the treatment of arthritis, gout, rheumatism, poor circulation, nausea, nervous fatigue, and anxiety.
Ginger essential oil is warming and energizing. It’s a favorite of massage therapists to use during the long, cold months of winter. It’s effective as an analgesic, antiseptic, antidepressant, antispasmodic, expectorant, febrifuge, rubefacient, stimulant, tonic, and carminative. Ginger oil has also been proven to help ward off feelings of loneliness and depression, especially in the winter.
