Balance your Moods with Essential Oils
Moods can be a tricky thing to balance in everyone, we are all biochemically different. What works for one may not always work for someone else. Essential oils have hundreds of different compounds allowing them to be used for multiple different things rather than just one thing. When I feel that my emotions are out of sorts and need to be balanced, I always switch it up and see what oils I am drawn to that day. I love to close my eyes and inhale and see what resonates with me most.
