Can Aromatherapy Really Help In Stressful Times?
Aromatherapy and its use of essential oils, has become a key component in natural healing within the past year. Why do you think that's so? For starters, the global pandemic that began in 2020 created a snowball effect of stress.

Because aromatherapy uses essential oils, you are dealing with the essence of plant life itself. Aromatherapy is a holistic therapy that's used to promote physical, mental and spiritual balance.

Lavender is known for its remarkable ability to help balance the nervous system. This in turn, helps with anxiety, depression, insomnia and yes, stress.

Clary Sage is one of those oils that is closely associated with hormone challenges. Yet Clary Sage is considered the best oil, by some, for stress relief.

When stressed, you're typically looking for a way to balance your emotions. You're also looking for a way to escape and deal with reality at the same time.

It's not easy.
