Not only is this time of year normally busy and stressful, but I feel like this year is a whole new ball game! Keeping our stress levels down is very important as stress can lead to so many issues, mentally and physically. Emotional issues end up physically effecting us, whether that is unhealthy weight gain, heart issues or physical pain like tension headaches. Looking for some suggestions to keep your stress away? Read on then!
To help with tension pain Peppermint essential oil is very effective and can help relieve headaches if you end up getting one. But to keep your stress levels down, diffusing essential oils is a great way to help you! Here are some of my favorite calming diffuser blends:
1. 2 drops Black Spruce and 1 drop Cinnamon Bark
2. 2 drops Wild Orange and 2 drops of Lavender
3. 2 drops of Tangerine and 2 drops of Juniper Berry
Some other efforts I make is to exercise regularly, get a good night sleep and add adaptogens into my diet. To help me sleep I take a restful supplement and also find taking 2 drops of Vetiver internally helps so much, it really calms my mind and allows me to fall asleep quicker.
Here is a great link to learn more about adaptogens, how they work and suggestions as to what you can take to get them into your system.
I hope you can use these tips to keep the stress away this holiday season and going forward! If you need help getting started with essential oils, click on my contact page and I will be in touch!
