For a lot of you, it's a time of fear and anxiety. Others of you have found a way to use these uncertain times as a way to move yourselves to another level.

What do you have to lose? Things can only go up! COVID 19 has brought a lot of you into a new way of thinking. You see life as never before.

Aromatherapy ... Helping You Through Uncertain Times.

How does aromatherapy play a role in your new way of approaching life? It helps to calm your breathing and ease the rapid thoughts that come on you like a steam roller.

Aromatherapy also, helps lift your spirit when you feeling a bit down and not as confident today as you were yesterday. There's something about a pleasing aroma that helps ease you into a more relaxed state.

When using aromatherapy, it's essential oils that help ease you into a state of calm, relaxation or uplifting for that matter. As aromatherapist, we can't tell you that a given oil will do a specific thing.

What we can do, is suggest an oil or oil blend and tell you what it's been known to or said to do. The true test of how it works for you, becomes evident in your use of the oil and the results you get.

That being said, give these oils a try.

Fear and anxiety can be traumatizing to your health and well-being. Therefore, essential oils that are known to aid in your emotional well-being might need to be part of your go-to arsenal when you need reinforcement.

Here's a very short list of essential oils to consider:

Bergamot oil is known for its ability to elevate your mood and alleviate stress. It's one of those oils that's typically used in perfumes as a top note. Top notes are the ones you smell when you first encounter a perfume.
