I'm Really Going To Grow This Fragrance for Stress Relief – Here's Why
5 min read
The main purpose when shopping for a perfume or fragrance is to make sure it smells good on you, right? Because of chemistry, some fragrances may smell different to you than their best friend or your mother. And of course, perfume is very subjective. Some people may be more attracted to trunk, handy perfumes while others may opt for lighter flowers .
It also depends on the mood and the vibe you want to put there. For me, I want to spritz in a more spicier fragrance for nights out (come back when we can get out!). But during the day, I am motivated towards floral, citrus and fresh scents. However, it is not just about status and giving a certain aura. I recently realized that you can also use fragrance as a form of self-care, too.
I don & # 39; t know why I didn & # 39; t put two and two together before, especially I & # 39; t regularly using diffusers and essential oils to relax and unwind. Some perfumes can be used for their aromatherapy benefits such as lavender to help you fall asleep faster or rosemary and peppermint for enhanced concentration.
Bergamot is a perfume commonly found in fragrances and has aromatherapeutic benefits. A 2017 study found evidence that citrus-like fragrance can improve mental health and well-being. Many perfume fans believe it has the properties of stress — and anxiety to help you feel refreshed and energized. As someone who would try any and every ritual of self-care or technique, spritzing on a bergamot scent seems like a low-lift thing to experiment with when I need to rest and release the -igting.
It also helps that bergamot is, I think, a sophisticated and highly fragrant perfume. You have the freshness of citrus but there is also something grounded and quite spicy. It really is the perfect balance and very unique. And as I mentioned above, it can be found in many perfumes.
So if you want to try the bergamot stress-relief theory, here are some of our favorite perfumes below.
