Common herbs can be used to cure common ailments via aromatherapy 

 

Herbs have been used for thousands of years to help relieve everything from headaches to anxiety to insomnia, and have the additional benefits of pleasant fragrance, attractive greenery and pretty flowers – benefits not found in any bottle of pills from the pharmacy.

 

 

Viva grande 

The Electrolux Viva Grande air conditioner will ensure even circulation of cold air throughout your home.

 

All you need is a sprig of fresh leaves, inhale the potent fragrance, and feel your troubles ease. Having air conditioners like the Electrolux Viva Grande’s large air fins create 3D airflow that helps to spread their fragrance around your home.

 

Sweet basil

This aromatic herb’s uses go beyond the saucepan. Next time you’re facing a challenging task, and looking for focus and mental clarity, turn to basil instead of caffeine for a boost of energy, stimulation and mental focus.

 

Cilantro

Cilantro isn’t just for Asian or Mexican cooking. When a hectic day has left you a bit irritable or stressed, the powerful aroma of cilantro can help rebalance your mood, leaving you feeling confident and calmer.

 

Rosemary

Just brushing against a rosemary plant is enough to release the powerful fragrance, which has been shown to improve memory and concentration. So next time you have a major presentation at work or are the speaker at your non-profit’s big fundraiser, take a sprig of rosemary to sniff before you head to the podium.

 

Lavender

Lavender has long been used to treat insomnia and anxiety. The pretty purple flowers can be used fresh or dried to calm the mind and promote restful sleep. Just clip a flower stalk and slip it into a tiny vase near your nightstand, or place it in the guestroom to help weary overnight visitors beat fatigue and jet lag.

 

Peppermint

This hardy herb has so many uses – use it to flavour lemonade, make tea, add zing to fish or chicken, or mix up a classic mojito. Peppermint goes beyond the kitchen, however. The next time a headache strikes, pluck a few leaves off your peppermint plant, rub them between your fingers to release the oils, then sniff the fragrance, or rub the oil right onto your temples.
