Oct2013StressedPic

While we live in extraordinary times, sometimes life’s stresses can take its toll on our emotions.  Our emotions get all tangled up with daily chores, work, worry, overwhelming drama or trauma.

Don’t you just wish we had a button that we could push to make order out of the chaos?

For those times when we can’t wrap our head around whatever uncertainty is present, we all need that emotional place to “let go” for some inner peace and tranquility. The following essential oils have a multitude of properties and are all good for their uplifting qualities that can help bring calm and clarity.

About Aromatherapy Contessa

I love creating aromatic blends with essential oils whether for my Arlys Naturals product lines, for fun, or for customer special orders. I'm just drawn into the veil of mystery that nature has provided through these living plants, not just in their aromatic properties, but also their natural healing properties.
