Aromatherapy For Emotional Health

What if we would live in this perfect world where there is no rush hours, no stress, no judgment, no super high expectations, no emotional pressure… I guess we wouldn’t have much stress, especially as parents, no depressions, no anxiety, no anger, no frustration, no fear. But we have what we have, and there is also beauty in it all, it stimulates us to become better.

The only problem I see is that there are way too many emotional problems these days. Maybe it was before, but I only see it’s in all high lights for the last few years. Even I myself had issues and whenever I would talk about it with a doctor most of the time there would be one remedy – anti-depressive pills.

I have a story with pills before, long story short, I was more like a vegetable rather then a healthy human. Since then I prefer a more natural and holistic way to solve these type of problems.

Nature gave us already all we need for a healthy living, including our mental and emotional well-being. Aromatherapy has a huge variety of essential oils that are very helpful for emotional health.
