Essential Oils to Banish Stress


by: Alannah Moore

Our sense of smell is one of the most powerful tools we have to combat the negativity of stress.

An ocean breeze, the fresh smell of the forest after a rainfall, the pristine scent of a crisp winter morning - all of these uplift our spirit.

Essential oils allow us to bring the exhilarating scent of the outdoors into our indoor lives. Try one of these combinations when you feel the hassle of modern day living getting to you.
