Soothing Oils can be found among the sesquiterpenes and the monoterpenes. What are monoterpenes? They are the most common class of terpenes in Essential Oils. They have other constituents such as esters, containing properties that are very calming, relaxing and balancing to the central nervous system.

Monoterpenes can also contain aldehydes; containing properties that are calming not just to your emotions, but also to your autonomic nervous system. These aldehydes usually have a strong floral aroma.

Some Soothing Oils of both the sequiterpenes and monoterpenes are: Ylang, Ylang, Melissa, Lavender, and Roman Chamomile.

Roman Chamomile provides a sweet, floral aroma while soothing body systems as it supports calming effects for the skin, mind, and body.*

The plant has been nicknamed the “plant’s physician” because it has positive effects on plants growing nearby. Ancient Romans used the oil for courage during war. While the most common use of Chamomile is in teas, Roman Chamomile can also be found in face creams, drinks, hair dyes, shampoos, and perfumes.
