10 Essential Oils for Relaxation

10 Essential Oils for Relaxation

Essential oils encourage us to take a deep breath, relax our bodies and notice the beauty around us. These are my top 10 essential oils to keep on hand to help freshen up the house or to unwind after a rough day.

Some of my favorite methods of application include diffusers, many bath and body products and spa therapy. Being pampered is always uplifting! 

I hope you enjoy these essential oils as much as I do.
