Choosing perfume for your home can make all the difference in managing feelings of fatigue and stress in social distance. For many people, spending time at home has changed. Due to the social distance indicated for the control of the pandemic, there are more hours of work and monitoring of children’s studies, not to mention the reduction of leisure activities. A perfect formula to generate anxiety and stress triggers.
At home, there are several ways to enjoy the benefits of pleasant smells. Either by means of ascent, placing in the bathwater, pillows, or a bowl of hot water. Massage is also a good way to use oils in two ways, by the aroma, and by absorption.
Different products can help you achieve a pleasant scent, as perfumer Adiene Fernandes explains. The most found are aerosols, diffusers with sticks, and electric perfumes.
With the first, we can control the intensity of the fragrance, and when we want to have the space scented. When we choose the diffuser with rods, the perfume stays in the environment in a more diffuse way. In this case, it is important that the bottle is located in a ventilated area of the house, and that the sticks are turned frequently so that the fragrance is dispersed in the air more efficiently. There is also the possibility of using the electric scent, which works by heating the essence or essential oil and needs to be on for a longer time so that the scent of the space occurs more effectively.
Whoever chooses essential oils, says Adiene, a graduate in Industrial Pharmacy, wins an extra offer in relation to products that are only intended to perfume. Because they are natural, they have therapeutic effects and produce responses in our nervous, cardiovascular, digestive, pulmonary system, and in hormonal secretion. But they must be used with care.
In this important moment of anxiety control, the professional listed at Donna’s request requests some of these essential oils for exclusive use in environments (in contact with the skin they can cause allergies and spots). Are they:
