Essential Oils to Help You Get Through the Holidays

JoAnne Gaudioso

At this time of the year we find ourselves surrounded by a mix of joy, anxiety, gratitude, and stress wrapped up in a package almost as pretty as those under the tree.

We know that it can be hard to find relaxing downtime with the combination of travel, shopping, parties, and the never-ending buzz of Christmas activities. But ultimately you deserve to relax and enjoy the festive season as much as anyone.

Here are a few oils to help you stay invigorated and as stress-free as possible this holiday season.

Wild Orange: This essential oil stimulates and purifies at the same time, and provides a wide array of health benefits. It can give your immune system a boost and keep you feeling awake.

Lavender: Craving a night of good sleep? Lavender can help ease feelings of tension while providing a calming and relaxing atmosphere to help you unwind and drift off to a blissful sleep.

Bergamot: Are you looking for a little balance? Bergamot is calming and soothing and can help you unwind.

Peppermint: During this season, there are always hearty meals around the dinner table and seemingly endless temptation of sweet treats. Peppermint can help you get through it. It helps with digestion, no matter what hits the dinner table.

Frankincense: This oil is a great go-t0 oil when you are looking for some peace, relaxation, overall wellness, and satisfaction.
