Evoking the spirit of Christmas with Essential Oils
Christmas can be a time of joy but to many it becomes a time of stress. The following are a choice of Essential Oils that I use to help me get through the festive season.
I use it as a vaporiser blend and have it vaporising in my diffuser 24 hours a day.
It conjures up feelings of past family Christmases, Mum’s home cooked pies and Christmas pudding. The Christmas tree which was chosen from the choice of real trees from the grower up the road and midnight mass at the local church, lovely childhood memories.
