Got Feelings? Get EMOTIONAL System Support!
Hello!
 
I love the fact that essential oils provide a way to support each of our body's systems! So how do you support your Emotional System?  

Quality essential oils can support overall health and wellness, which will definitely help you keep emotions in balance. Additionally, some of the oils bring to mind comforting feelings of familiarity when we catch their scent.  Some essential oils are calming, and some are invigorating!  When I want to wake up or cheer up the family I might be found diffusing a citrus scent like tangerine essential oil!  

When it seems everyone is a bit on edge I may reach for Stress Away roll-on or make up a blend of comfort oils I am fond of.  Hey, people have "comfort foods" right! Why not comfort oils? Which is your favorite? Most folks are familiar with the scent of Lavender, Peppermint, Vanilla (which is one of the oils in Stress Away).  

I heard this advice and passed it on to my 18-year-old daughter who is headed back to college soon and tends to have trouble sleeping:  Get into the habit of using a certain essential oil or blend that you like at bedtime, making it part of your bedtime routine.  Then that familiar scent can help trigger sleep at times when you might otherwise have trouble getting to sleep.  (Good advice for parents to incorporate into bedtime routines with children, too.  But be careful to keep babies and toddlers safe as essential oils can be potent.  Always diffuse in a well-ventilated area -- keep the door open-- using less oil thereby making it more diluted, making sure there are no adverse reactions just as you would when introducing a new food).  We have a line of products specially formulated for children, so convenient!  Check out the Gentle Baby essential oil blend for babies and mamas, too!
