Posted on November 24 2015
Life can get hard sometimes. Trying to manage your job, your relationships, your finances… it can get overwhelming!
That’s why I love knowing that I can always use essential oils to help me find my balance and reconnect with myself.
Their soothing, relaxing power is amazing.
For me, nothing is quite as good at quieting down my 'inner chatter' as essential oils.
There are 5 essential oils that I've found particularly helpful for helping me manage stress.
I hope you find them as useful as I do!
This light, fruity citrus oil is uplifting and positive. Bergamot essential oil relaxes and refreshes and is good for confidence building.
According to Gabriel Mojay ("Aromatherapy for Healing the Spirit"), Bergamot oil has the ability to help disperse stagnant Qi-energy, freeing up emotions like anger, anxiety and frustration which, if left to fester, can lead to depression.
It truly uplifts the spirit and emotions!
