At Just Believe Carbondale, our passion is your recovery. We will explore all possible options in our mission to help you overcome addiction. Aromatherapy can play a strong, complementary role in this process.

Following more Eastern views on recovery, aromatherapy focuses on the benefits of plant-based oils that fill the environment with a powerful scent. Multiple studies demonstrate the positive effects that this can have on a person’s wellbeing and focus.

How Does Aromatherapy Work?

Aromatherapy creates a more holistic and nurturing environment for recovery. Scent has a direct impact on our cognitive thinking, as well as elements of our physiology.

For example, inhaling the scent of essential plant oils stimulates the nervous system. This can result in positive reactions to the presence of oils in a way that establishes a soothing environment. 

WE BELIEVE that recovery is possible for everyone.
WE BELIEVE in YOU!

Combining Aromatherapy with Meditation

Aromatherapy works well in conjunction with meditation, which can increase a patient’s awareness and instill calmness. These effects can assist with internal thinking and reflection, which can help a person understand his or her addictive behaviors and thought patterns.

One of the most fundamental elements of meditation is a strong focus on the nature of the breath. Certain types of meditation start with clearing the mind by becoming aware of the rising and falling of each breath. This creates a calm perspective that aromatherapy can enhance.

Depending on the essential oils, meditation in the presence of aromatherapy can encourage a more productive and focused environment. This results in increased potential during meditative sessions, as the brain begins to recognize the scent with a soothing environment that’s conducive to progress and advancement.
