We are just on the cusp of holiday season kicking into full gear. Signs of turkey day and even those sparkling lights of Christmas are popping up in retail stores. For some, the holidays are a time excitement and joy and for others a time of sadness or anxiety. No matter which side of the spectrum you fall on, the added traffic, unique family situations, and enhanced crowds cause some level of added stress for us all.

Luckily, there are many strategies for combating stress easily available to you, one of which is essential oils. You’ve heard of them, maybe even own a few, but how can you use them to keep the peace internally and for those around you this holiday season?

Easy! Simply drop 5 drops Sweet Orange, 2 drops Cinnamon bark, 2 drops nutmeg, 2 drops clove in your diffuser and enjoy a spicy holiday aroma. This doesn’t just smell amazing, and it does, but science shows us this blend also boosts happiness and reduces stress. You can even take it with you by creating a smaller version of this for your car to combat the traffic stress or that long car ride to visit family.

Aromatic use of essential oils is a proven way to do many things, including reduce stress, improve immune function, and increase happiness endorphins – all key factors in a relaxing and healthy holiday season. Remember to choose organic essential oils whenever possible. Your home or car will smell fabulous and festive, and your stress will melt away.
