Mint Aromatherapy for Stress Relief

Here Are Some Ways To Use Mint Aromatherapy for Stress Relief


Updated November 30, 2009

Mint aromatherapy brings wonderful benefits for stress relief and general wellness. Peppermint aromatherapy in particular is often used for alertness and energy as well as general stress relief. (See this article for more aromatherapy benefits of peppermint and other scents.) Because of the convenience and ease of use that comes with it, mint aromatherapy is an ideal stress relief tool. Here are some of the ways you can use mint aromatherapy for stress relief.

1. Ginger/Mint Aromatherapy Mist - $6.00-$7.00

This convenient spray can be spritzed on wrists for an on-the-go wake-me-up, or in the air for an energizing environment. It's a great way to create more energy when you're tired, studying for a test, cleaning, or facing a situation where you need a lift.

2. Ginger/Mint Aromatherapy Body Cream - $5.00 and Up

I love ginger-mint aromatherapy cream because it can be used for massage for additional stress relief benefits, used as needed during the day as stress mounts or energy is needed, or smoothed on in the morning as a wake-me-up and for all-day stress relief (and soft skin)!

3. Shower Therapy Green Tea & Mint Aromatherapy Shower Tablets - $5.00 and Up

Okay, this is pretty cool. These are tablets that you can use with your shower head to create green tea-and-mint water in your shower. It's a revitalizing way to start your morning refreshed and alert. It contains 3 tablets.

4. Classic Aromatherapy Candle Vitality (Mint) - $13.00 and Up

These candles can provide a wonderful mix of peppermint and eucalyptus to create a refreshing, restorative and revitalizing experience. The scent can fill the room and affect several people at once, and look beautiful, too. You can also use a candle like this as a focal point for meditation.

5. Ginger/Mint Aromatherapy Foam Bath - $2.00-$3.00 each

This foaming bath product can bring soft skin and great stress relief! The mix of mint and ginger can wake you up and leave you feeling refreshed and alert, and can be great for an aromatherapy bath meditation.
