Remember the days when a drop or two of Rescue Remedy was the cure all for any ailment from a hangover to fear of flying? Now there are hundreds of handbag sized aromatherapy treatments specifically blended to alleviate any predicament your emotional state finds itself in. With Aromatherapy Awareness Week just around the corner from 10th-16 June, here are some of Stylist’s favourite aromatherapy saviours.

Words: Victoria Baker

9am – Ring the Alarm

When you’re so tired you feel jet lagged, mist Roques O’Neil’s Therapie Restore Aura Spray around your desk. A mix of essential oils and crystals instantly re-energise and prepare you for the day ahead. (£25, cultbeauty.co.uk)

11am - Pre Meeting

Need a confidence boost before your big pitch? A dab of Aesop’s Ginger Flight Therapy oil, blended with Lavender Stem and Geranium onto pressure points will calm your frayed nerves. (£21, aesop.com)

3pm – Approaching Deadline

If looming deadlines are pushing your stress levels through the roof, dab a couple of drops of an oil containing frankincense, which acts as a respiratory tonic, onto a tissue and inhale to induce deeper, slower breathing. We recommend Aromatherapy Associates De-Stress Frankincense Pure Essential Oil. (£25, aromatherapyassociates.com)

6pm – Transport Trauma

For an instant mood enhancer, spray The Body Shop Total Energy Uplifting Spritz all over your body and onto pressure points. This energising spray contains guarana, a plant with the highest percentage of caffeine, to positively impact on your mood. (£10, thebodyshop.co.uk)

11pm – Pillow Talk

A spritz of This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray on to your linen before bed, will aid a restful night’s sleep for those who struggle to drop off. With 100% natural essential oils including French Lavender to relieve tension, Chamomile (a gentle sedative) and Vetivert to alleviate stress. (£15, thisworks.com)

Stockists: Aesop (aesop.com), Aromatherapy Associates (aromatherapyassociates.com), Roques O’Neil (cultbeauty.co.uk), The Body Shop (thebodyshop.co.uk), This Works (thisworks.co.uk)
