The last few weeks have been stressful to say the least. You may find yourself reaching for something that can keep you calm, energized and focused. A brownie might be your first go to but let's face it junk food and sweets are short lived.

I have always been a fan of Aroma Therapy. Healthline.com has a great definition if you aren't familiar with the concept.

Aromatherapy is a holistic healing treatment that uses natural plant extracts to promote health and well-being. Sometimes it’s called essential oil therapy.
