Eym stands for Elevate your Mood, and was founded on the premise that it’s the little rituals that make life richer.
I have always been a big advocate for mental health. I suffered from panic attacks from the age of fifteen - a time when anxiety was not discussed so openly. What I learned during this time was that professional help and medication are essential, but small, daily rituals can also have an immensely calming and centering effect on your mood.
This is when my love of essential oils came about which led me into aromatherapy. Smell is scientifically proven to have a powerful effect on mood, and increasingly, I found essential oils had this gentle therapeutic effect on me. Evening’s tended to be my trickiest time, so I would add a few drops of lavender to a bath, or put some rose absolute into an oil burner, then dim the lights, light some candles and try to leave the busy, adrenaline-filled days at the door. It was symbolic of winding down.
Since then, hearing about other people’s rituals has always fascinated me. I love hearing about people’s favorite little moments throughout the day. So I’ve asked some friends of Eym, to tell us theirs….
