How to Improve Mood With Skincare: Mood-Balancing

Beauty is certainly not only skin deep. Using plant-based natural ingredients, beauty products have the power to alter your mood, balance your emotions, and help you lead a healthier and more empowered lifestyle. As the first-ever mood-balancing beauty brand®, we at Essential Rose know how vital self-care beauty rituals are for both mental health and healthy skin. That is why we harness the power of essential oils to bring you the physical and emotional healing you need in your beauty products for self-care morning, night, and on-the-go.

But what is mood-balancing beauty?

Mood-balancing beauty® harnesses the power of essential oils used in aromatherapy to work on a chemical level to regenerate skin-cells and improve the mood and mindset. Whether it’s tackling anxiousness or boosting positivity and concentration, there are some serious benefits to sprinkling a bit of essential oil here and there. Research shows that aromatherapy activates certain smell receptors in the brain that send messages to activate your limbic system, which plays a role in your emotions, memories, and associations. Using essential oils can promote the release of feel-good chemicals like dopamine and serotonin, reduce blood pressure and heart rate, balance the central nervous system, lower cortisol levels, and so much more. When you apply essential oils to the skin through skincare products, not only are they cleansing, regenerating, and repairing skin cells to promote glow and radiance, they are also imparting these “mind” benefits that offer a holistic experience of beauty within and without.

Here are some of the most popular essential oils we love and how they can create “mood-balancing beauty.”

Check them out below:

Use to: alleviate anxiety and calm your mind
How? Lavender has been proven to ease symptoms of depression and anxiety due to it’s highly sedative, anxiolytic, mood-balancing, and calming properties. One of its main constituents, Linalool, is shown to exhibit anti-conflict effects. Lavender oil promotes mental and emotional well-being and, due to its abundant neuro-protective properties, is known to support the treatment of a variety of neurological disorders.

Tip: Apply Lavender to the temples before bed each night for a peaceful, easy rest! Try our Sedate Mood Oil® mixed with Lavender and Chamomile for ultimate tranquility and surrender.

Use to: fight stress and inflammation
How? Pine bark contains multiple compounds that fight oxidative stress and inflammation, and relieve mental, physical, and adrenal fatigue. Pine is commonly used in Aromatherapy for its strengthening and reviving effect on the mind and body. It has pain-relieving properties reduce the effects of spasms and “perceived pain.”

Use to: reduce anxiety and melt stress
How? Chamomile promotes a deep state of relaxation due to its sedative properties. Research shows that the use of Chamomile can attenuate and alleviate depressive and anxiety symptoms through reinforcing the nerves. It contains antispasmodic andanti-inflammatory properties, which can soothe tense and “inflamed” emotions and states of mind.
Fun fact: Chamomile is derived from the two greek words “Khamai” (“on the ground”) and “Melon” (“apple”), which are attributed to it’s apple-scented aroma. It is also known as the “star among medicinal species.”

Use to: promote grounding, sensuality, and euphoria
How?​ Patchouli oil is shown to decrease sympathetic nervous activity, which is responsible for the fight-or-flight response in the body. This, in conjunction with its shown ability to reduce heart rate makes it grounding and stress-relieving. It is also recorded to be both a stimulant, which supports its historic use as an aphrodisiac, and a relaxant through its ability to increase Alpha brain waves. This simultaneous stimulating and relaxing activity is perhaps why it is also used prior to meditation and considered to be a “euphoric”.

There are many different ways to apply essential oils, from dropping them into a diffuser to massaging them directly into the skin. Applying them to the skin gives you 2-in-1 benefits of:

  1. Inhaling the aroma to balance the brain chemistry
  2.  Absorbing into the bloodstream to work internally.
