Floral scents have multiple benefits for our bodies and minds.
Floral oils are generally calming, stress-relieving and sleep-promoting, helping us to feel well and rested. They often have pain-relieving properties, being used to calm muscle pain and relieve hormonal pain and cramping.
Floral oils are also incredibly popular in skincare thanks to their gentle cleansing and soothing abilities. These six oils all have multiple benefits for your mental health, physical wellness, and home hygiene.
