Today I was asked what a beneficial blend of essential oils would be for overall peace and wellness.
I would like to share a blend I often use which is very uplifting with a sense of serenity, peace and calm. Let the essential oils help you when you are having a more stressful and overwhelming day! Not only do you get the uplifting affects mentally you also get the antiviral properties which is always a nice added bonus.
