It's days like today where its gloomy, bland, and downright crappy out. Sometimes you need a little pick me up to get your day started off right. Don't worry there is an essential oil for YOU. Yessss I said essential oil as in aromatherapy. There are many uses for these wonderful oils. For instance, feeling blue, a little sad perhaps? Try sniffing some lemon or citrus oil to help with depression and for a quick pick me up to help with drowsiness.
Suffering from a headache? Rub some peppermint oil on your forehead or to your cupids bow (the little crevasse under your nose). In addition, peppermint aids in concentration (so all you college student out there--this one's for you!)
Do you lie awake at night staring at the clock or counting sheep? Don't suffer any longer and try a little lavender oil on your pillow to help relax your mind and drift into that wonderful suspension of consciousness.In addition, incorporating some chamomile tea before bed helps you to relax and ease into sleep.
For all my ladies out there--this one's for you! Menstrual cramps oh ya those ones that make you double over in pain--try some Geranium oil
Happy sniffing :)
ps. consult with doctor before beginning any regimen.
