Self-Care With Stress Relief And A Good Book   

Taking time to deal with stress is hard in today's fast-paced world of instant information and deadlines. Our Stress Relief synergistic blend of Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Black Pepper, Clary Sage, Petitgrain, Pine Needle and Vetiver may help lessen your worries and unwind your mind. We like to enjoy this blend paired with a good book as a way to relax and take a little time for self-care.

According to a study by Emory University, neuroscientists have discovered that becoming engrossed in a novel enhances connectivity in the brain and improves brain function while bettering the reader's ability to put themselves in another person’s shoes. A paper published by the University of Minnesota references a 2009 study at the University of Sussex showing that reading silently for even just six minutes can slow down your heart rate and ease tension in your muscles, making it one of the best ways to reduce tension. Kinda cool, huh?

What kind of books do you like to read? Fiction? Maybe nonfiction? Novels about magical creatures and faraway places? Or perhaps you prefer the classics? Or there’s always biographies or how to books, books about people, places, and things? Books that make us think outside our own personal box, giving us the ability to escape into another world, learning the intricacies of other minds. Add in a few essential oils or our Stress Relief blend and you’ve got the perfect recipe for de-stressing.

Do you use essential oils to help you relieve tension? How are you currently combating stress and taking time for self-care?
