There is something so calming about essential oils. Essential oils can be ingested, inhaled, and applied to the skin.
Recently, I received a 60-minute Swedish massage using a mixture of essential oils. It felt relaxing and revitalizing as she massaged the oils on my skin. As the oils absorbed into my skin my circulation started to increase. It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. You can search for deals on Groupon on local massage therapists. Book you a session and treat yourself.
What is most important is that you take care of yourself.
I purchased a diffuser from Gurunanda the other day. There are so many benefits of having a diffuser as I would list below. I purchased mine to help me relax and help with respiratory issues. What I love about Gurunanda is that they blog about recipes and much more on essential oils. You can find their blog here. This is here for everyday use. Your atmosphere is extremely important to your mission for peace of mind. Diffusers, aromatherapy candles, and salt rocks are great ways to do that.
