Aromatherapy can be a great way to combat the blues (seasonal or otherwise). By diffusing essential oils into the air, we are using the power of smell to affect mood. This is done by choosing uplifting, energizing scents...in this case citrus essential oils are the very common to use.
As I'm not yet confident in my ability to blend essential oils, I wanted to provide you with some legitimate blends from aromatherapists. Here are some web articles to check out that include essential oil blends for the bath and diffuser that can help get you to spring and sunnier days:
- Mountain Rose Herbs: Winter Blues Spray
- AromaWeb: Winter Blues Blends
- AromaWeb: Tips for Combating Winter Blues
- Sedona Aromatherapies: Essential Oils for 'Winter Blues'
Please remember: None of these ideas are a substitute for medical attention. If you are depressed, please seek professional help.
