Four ways to ease pre-wedding anxiety
Feeling stressed or nervous in the lead-up to your wedding day? Don’t worry, it’s totally normal to feel a bit jittery, but if you let your anxiety get the better of you it can put a dampener on your big day.
The use of aromatherapy and essential oils is a great holistic way to help you stay calm and relaxed in the lead-up to, and day of your wedding. “It takes approximately four seconds for an essential oil to reach the brain through the sense of smell and four minutes to be absorbed into the blood stream through the skin,” says The Aromatherapy Company’s founder, Sarah Townsend. “Which means the therapeutic effects of aromatherapy and essential oils can be extremely beneficial for future brides as they prepare for their big day.”
So rather than reaching for the alcohol to try calm your nerves (because we bet you’ll regret that later), follow Sue’s tips and tricks for using aromatherapy and essential oils to help you look and feel your best on your big day.
ANTI-ANXIETY WEDDING TIP #1:
When you feel your anxiety peaking or before it strikes, burn the The Aromatherapy Company Therapy Lavender, Manuka and Wild Chamomile Essential Oil Blend in a burner or Therapy Candle to infuse a relaxing and peaceful aroma throughout your environment. This specific blend can be used in the lead-up to your wedding to help relax your body by combating stress and anxiety.
ANTI-ANXIETY WEDDING TIP #2:
The day of the wedding can be an extremely stressful and manic time for the whole bridal party. At this stage, it is important to establish a sense of balance and calm throughout the environment. Try burning The Aromatherapy Company Cocoa Vanilla and Cassia Essential Oil Blend in your dressing room before walking down the aisle to encourage a sense of peace and tranquility.
ANTI-ANXIETY WEDDING TIP #3:
To help sustain the vital energy needed on this crazy day, The Aromatherapy Company offers an Energy Pulse Point roll-on, which is the perfect size to pop in your handbag to use whenever necessary. The 100 per cent pure and natural essential oil blend of rosemary and lemon in a base of sweet almond oil can help to uplift, revitalise and rebalance your entire body and your mind.
ANTI-ANXIETY WEDDING TIP #4:
Creating a signature scent for your wedding is another way aromatherapy can be used to enhance your day. You can achieve this by placing diffusers and candles throughout the reception, dotting them around the room, tables and bathrooms to create a beautiful ambience. It’s these little touches that will help make your special day stand out from the rest.
