Scents for Healthy Living

Try the complementary scent to solve the appropriate problem:

  • Anxiety: vanilla, lavender, basil, rose, chamomile
  • Depression:  rose, lavender
  • Fatigue: lemon, peppermint, lily of the valley
  • Headache: lavender, eucalyptus, ginger, peppermint
  • High blood pressure: lavender,sage
  • Insomnia: lavender, basil, vanilla
  • Stress: lavender, rose, vanilla

Time to get some lavender and bake some cookies with vanilla.
