Many people spend lots of time
and money eating a healthy diet, taking all the
right supplements, and getting enough exercise –
all in the name of becoming healthy. But
one thing that doesn’t get the energy that it
deserves is stress management.
Stress is your body’s response to anything that
disrupts your normal life and routines- meaning
anything that throws you off balance. When
our bodies get off balance, disease occurs.
The effects of stress can be emotional,
psychological, and physical. Irritability,
depression, anxiety, inability to concentrate,
sleep issues, problems with memory, digestive
issues, headaches, and sugar/caffeine cravings
have all been linked to stress. And living
with chronic stress can lead to a whole host of
chronic health issues that are making us sicker
and sicker as a culture.

can offer dramatic benefits to our
mental and physical health. They

essential oils is through diffusing them. It
disperses the essential oils molecules into

several minutes. I have found this an
