Patchouli is something that has and always will remind me of my mother. She used to burn patchouli incense all of the time but little did I know that this incredible scent actually can help energize you. It can also help relieve anxiety and even assist with depression! All of that by inhaling an earthy scent – pretty amazing right?
Jasmine aromatherapy oils are something that has been in my life always. My mother used to burn the oil in a little dish to make her entire bathroom smell like jasmine. While I didn't understand the concept of having a sweet-smelling bathroom when I was a kid, I understand it now! Jasmine has been known to reduce tension and stress and can also help ease depression and even can help with that emotional time during your pregnancy (so for all of you pregnant ladies out there, take notes)! So burn a little oil or even place some on your skin and soak up the scent – it works!

Rose is a smell that my grandmother always loved. She used to grow roses in her gardens and to this day, my mom still has a rose plant of hers. Rose essential oils are a little different than the plants but they do have a ton of useful properties inside of them. Rose oil can actually help you with everything from asthma symptoms to digestion issues – and all you have to do is breathe it in!
Finally we come to my favorite scent! The reasoning behind why this is my favorite is because on more than one occasion peppermint has saved my head from exploding. Not only does peppermint smell really sweet and spicy at the same time but it actually helps with headaches! If you have had a blinding headache for days and are looking for relief, this is definitely the aromatherapy oil for you!
