Looking at the calendar or what it says on your smartphone, you know that it is 2016, the New Year, and you feel it in your stomach – that nervous queasy sensation like you are about to step out onto a stage in front of a large group of people. Then there are the newish feelings circulating in your heart and mind, almost like a windmill churning out a weird waltz kind of energy. You’re not entirely sure where this energy will take you, but you’re positive that it will take you somewhere – and that is perhaps the most important part. The trick is to direct that energy in a specific direction. That energy you’re experiencing is change and you must do all you can to make that energy as positive as possible. Now is the time to change your life for the better and you should let the nose lead the way.
Samantha Thomas of KSFY in Sioux Falls writes, “The new year is the perfect time to start living a healthier life, and there are some simple ways to do just that. Eating healthier and exercising are the most common goals, but there are many ways to live a healthier life. One of the most important, but less obvious ways to be healthier to reduce stress. There are some simple ways to do so using techniques like massage, music therapy, stretching, getting more sleep, aromatherapy.”
Of course, at Ja’Mi Products we adhere to the last of those options: Aromatherapy. Aromatherapy, in conjunction with other positive changes in your life, will have an enormous impact on your wellbeing. For starters, studies have shown that it can bring relief from anxiety and depression in addition to improving the quality of life for people with certain health conditions. Starting off the New Year on the right foot will be a lot easier when you’re not bogged down by depression or anxiety, those crippling conditions that seem to superglue our feet to the ground so that we can never make any forward progress. By taking the battle hard to your personal demons, you are setting yourself up for an explosion of positivity and it might not be immediate, but it is definitely coming.
The thing about aromatherapy is that it is completely natural, meaning it is extracted from parts of plants and then distilled. Embracing aromatherapy means that you are going back to your roots, literally and figuratively, reconnecting with something purer and fresher, and to think – it all starts with your nose. Change that starts with your nose certainly makes sense. After all, many consider smell the strongest sense, timeless almost. Tom Stafford of BBC writes, “What we know is that smell is the oldest sense, having its origins in the rudimentary senses for chemicals in air and water – senses that even bacteria have. Before sight or hearing, before even touch, creatures evolved to respond to chemicals around them.”
Therefore, our noses are like archeologists digging up the past, forcing us to come face to face with memory and purpose. Starting the New Year by reconnecting with our own personal fossils is a great way of knowing where we need to be in the future, and aromatherapy might just be the key to unlock that. At Ja’Mi Products, we offer all natural aromatherapy, handcrafted body & bath and jewelry products to raise your vibration and bring the mind, body and spirit into perfect harmony.
