Read all about it!

We’re excited to introduce the first edition of our online newsletter, where we’ll be sharing all the latest in aromatherapy. We’re excited to be your portal for news about wellness, starting with the benefits of essential oils used in our six signature blends for the shower.

The way we see it, essential oil aromatherapy is just part of the emerging neuroscience of happiness. Scientists who study the brain universally agree that finding a calmness in the midst of our stressed-out lives is essential for happiness, minute-to-minute. For example, new neuroscience studies on meditation link the increased production of oxytocin, sometimes called the “love hormone”, in the brain with a greater capacity for feeling happy. Inhaling aromatic essential oils may also produce natural feel-good chemicals, including serotonin and dopamine, in the brain.

And while we’re waiting for the data, showering simply feels good. Essential oils smell wonderful, and make us feel wonderful when we breathe them in. Maybe it’s not such a big mystery after all.

Thanks for reading, and check back soon for more news about our new blends for the showers, what’s happening in ingredient technology, and what ESSIO users have to say about their aromatherapy experience.
