We all love to have some aromatic products at home, whether it is because we like to have excellent bathtub experiences or because we like to maintain a relaxed afternoon at the weekends, they always come handy and can change our home-mood instantly.
But it all comes down to the type of aromatic products we use, as there are excellent ones just as there are low-quality products that will only make us feel wrong.
To avoid buying products that will not make us feel better in any, you should always know how to pick the right ones. Here we talk about all the details to consider when it comes to buying these items.
1. Check for Purity of Ingredients
One of the most important factors of an aromatic product is its purity, and it all comes down to what ingredients were used in its making. The blend of an aromatherapy perfume, for example, can have up to 10 ingredients, the same happens with oils. What you should always do, is to make sure the product comes 100% natural, with ingredients that are not synthetic or that could cause side effects. Sometimes, to avoid problems with purity, it’s always best to buy different essences individually and then blend them according to your liking.
2. Take a Look at the Sources
Is the company you’re buying from reliable? Is the shop where you are buying it trusted? And are you sure the product comes from a certified source? Always consider these facts before making your purchase, so you can avoid problems with what you get. It is always recommended to buy from certified health stores, specialized cosmetic shops or even aromatherapy stores, places where there are specialists that can give you an idea of its use, sources, and possible side effects. Unspecialized places may offer products with synthetic blends and other unhealthy chemicals that won’t be your best choice.
3. Search for What You Enjoy
Perfumes and oils always come with ingredients like lavender, lemon, peppermint, rosemary, tea tree, eucalyptus, orange, strawberry and so on. Whatever it is you prefer, make sure the product you choose comes with it. This way you will ensure a pleasurable and more relaxed experience when using it, and won’t feel like the product wasn’t worth your money.
4. Consider Therapeutic Benefits
Maybe the most critical part of using aromatherapy products, it is getting all the benefits from its ingredients and blends.
Always consider buying those products you know offer great therapeutic properties, PharmaSpa’s therapeutic products, which you can benefit from when using.
If you see a product you find interesting, find out what it’s benefits are, whether it helps to release stress, work as an antidepressant, boost energy levels, improve memory, promote sounding sleep, reduce headaches, improve ingestion or even just relieve any pain
5. Consider the Types of Use
It is known that aromatherapy can be practiced in many ways, including the use of flowers and other natural objects, incense sticks, perfumes, oils, pastes, candles and more. When you go buy one of these, make sure you pick the product which goes well with what you expect from it. As there are different types of products, there are also different types of uses. Also, consider the fact that most synthetic blends are easier to use, faster to work and tend to last a lot longer than natural products do.
So, what are you waiting for? Feeling eager to start your aromatherapy sessions? Or just want to start having relaxing weekends at home? Don’t wait anymore and go buy the perfect aromatic product considering these tips – and you won’t make a bad decision!

TOP BENEFITS AND USES OF LAVENDER
With a unique soft and pleasant aroma – lavender is one of the most sought-after aromatic plants in the market. Thanks to its essential oil that comes directly from the distillation of the flower, you can enjoy that comforting smell in a wide array of products nowadays.
But despite being mostly aromatic, lavender still manages to offer a few health benefits thanks to its natural properties.
It is therapeutic, helps soothe skin, enhances wound healing, and even has an anti-microbial effect.
Lavender can be found in PharmaSpa’s Articul-R, Quiet Sea, and Lavandula crystals and liquids. And here we’ll let you know why it is such a great option.
1. Better Sleep Quality
Bathing with lavender oil will also improve your sleeping. Thanks to its calming and soothing benefits, you can use it as a bathing crystal or liquid to relax your mind in the process. A few drops of lavender-based liquids will be enough to get you totally relaxed and ready for a long night of dreams.
Otherwise, you can just scent your pillow or use it on a diffuser around your bedroom. It will make you sleep faster, more comfortably, and more deeply.
2. Gets Rid of Stress & Anxiety
Lavender is beneficial for relaxation and gives a soothing effect. That’s why it is such an excellent ingredient for bathing and using on a hot tub.
The soothing ability of lavender when it is inhaled relaxes you to incredible levels, so fast and so effectively that you can rid yourself of stress and anxiety.
Take a bath every day with lavender, diffuse around your house whenever you’re in, and use it as your main fragrance for everything. It will relax your stress and anxiety away.
3. Enhances Hair Growth
Despite being mostly aromatic, the nutrients in lavender oil are also helpful at enhancing hair growth. Massaging your scalp daily will help reduce the loss of hair, improve the scalp health, and grow healthier strands over time.
While not necessarily the best treatment for alopecia in any of its forms, it is a pretty healthy and side-effect free alternative. And it will make you smell a lot better.
4. Heals Wound Faster
It may seem far-fetched, but it is true. Lavender actually has wound-healing properties that speed up the tissue repair process.
By applying a few drops of lavender oil on a small wound, you can receive an exponential improvement in healing speed. It won’t do miracles or save you from infection, but it can contract the skin and make it heal up faster than usual.
The same happens when you apply lavender creams and liquids on places with sunburn. Even taking a bath on water sprayed with lavender crystals can ease up the pain and help sunburn heal faster. Thanks to its powerful therapeutic properties, it is an excellent skin-healing product to consider.
5. Treats Bacteria, Microbes & Parasites
While not exactly a skin cleaner that will get rid of infections and viruses, lavender still works as anti-microbial oil.
In fact, it is so effective that you can use it to treat lice and similar infestations problems. When combined with other essential oils, it can produce a protective effect that cleanses and removes infestations from hair, beds, and other surfaces.
But its real advantage comes from its century-old known benefits that treat bacterial and fungal infections. Here, again, you can combine it with other essential oils and improve its benefits exponentially.
Just apply some of it on the surface that’s affected, and it will help cleanse and get rid of any potential danger.
6. Relieves Premenstrual Tension
Also known as PMT, it often happens in women who are within their child-bearing years. It can cause awful symptoms; going from moodiness to anxiety, to more physical effects like bloating and pain in the pelvic area.
Luckily, lavender essential oil can be used as an aromatherapy ingredient which can alleviate many of these symptoms.
Use PharmaSpa’s Lavandula crystals and liquids in your hot tub or bath before taking a soak. It may relax your body and temporarily ease the awful premenstrual tension.
7. Reduces Pain
The natural calming properties of lavender also offer analgesic & anti-inflammatory advantages. And this can be super helpful for people who suffer from conditions like arthritis, cramping, back pain, and even pelvic soreness.
Using it as the main ingredient in aromatherapy, lavender can relieve pain in different parts of the body. Applying the essential oil or liquid in the affected region can also reduce the pain scale exponentially.
And when it is used for a massage therapy as oil or liquid, then it works even better. Just a few drops are enough to relieve pain in affected areas going from the toes to the neck.
8. Relieves Migraine & Headaches
Nothing worse than getting a migraine every day – it debilitates, takes away motivation, and brings down your mood a lot.
Luckily, lavender is so beneficial at soothing stress, anxiety, and relieving common pains that you can also use it for migraines and feel extended relief.
You can rub it around your head as a liquid, or simply inhale it from a diffuser. Even staying on a bathtub filled with lavender crystals for several minutes can free you off annoying head conditions.
Enjoying lavender is not only about its pleasant aroma, but also about the vast array of health benefits it offers.
You can find lavender in PharmaSpa’s Articul-R, Quiet Sea, and Lavandula crystals and liquids. So don’t hesitate and get one of these today!
