Sometimes you just need a little afternoon pick-me-up. Aromatherapy using essential oils can help enhance both physical and emotional health. Generally thought of as both an art and a science, aromatherapy is getting more attention from the public as well as science and medicine.
If you get those ‘afternoon blues,’ especially during the colder months of the year, here’s a recipe for a DIY “Afternoon Pick-Me-Up Diffuser Blend” that may help lift your spirits on a cold afternoon.
