Cheers the night away, then relax with this tantalizing blend of chamomile, lavender and marjoram. You can add this to your bath water, diffuser or use it as a spray (smells great on linens).
Chamomile/ Chamaemelum nobile- Chamomile is well-known for its relaxing and sedating properties and intoxicating scent. It has long been associated with promoting a good night’s sleep, and research seems to back that up.
Depression and anxiety often occur together. One study used German chamomile extract in people with anxiety and depression.
Researchers observed a significant reduction in depression symptoms after eight weeks of treatment in the group that were given chamomile extract.
However, it’s important to note that while chamomile extract can be taken orally, chamomile essential oil should not be ingested.
Marjoram/ O. majorana -Several reports indicate that O. majorana is very rich in phenolic compounds. The high phenolics content in Origanum has a capacity to scavenge free radicals and shown to be associated with the strong antioxidant activity. O. marjorana was shown to contain phenolic terpenoids (thymol and carvacrol), flavonoids (diosmetin, luteolin, and apigenin), tannins, hydroquinone, phenolic glycosides (arbutin, methyl arbutin, vitexin, orientin, and thymonin) and triterpenoids (ursolic acid and oleanolic acid) .
In one study,they investigated the effect of Origanum majorana ethanolic extract (OME) on breast cancer cells. We examined the effects of OME on cell viability, cell cycle, apoptosis, and the levels of several cell cycle and apoptosis control proteins in the highly proliferative and invasive Estrogen Receptor (ER)-negative, mutant p53 breast cancer cell lines MDA-MB-231. Our results demonstrate that OME can inhibit the growth of the MDA-MB-231 cells by causing cell cycle arrest and apoptosis dependent on the downregulation of survivin and mutant p53.
Lavender-is one of the most popular aromatherapy oils. According to research, lavender aromatherapy is thought to calm anxiety by impacting the limbic system, the part of the brain that controls emotions.
