From time to time, we all experience a dip in energy and a down in the dumps feeling. Whether it happens as a reaction to challenging life events, is related to the time of year or comes out of left field, you know when you have the blues. And you’d rather not feel that way!
So, I created the “Uplift” blend with essential oils of lavender, spruce, bergamot and litsea cubeba. I selected lavender for its overall ability to calm the nervous system, spruce because it is grounding and comforting and the bergamot and litsea cubeba for their mood enhancing properties. It is the perfect synergy for that blue mood.
The “Uplift” Mood Mist is very versatile and transportable. You can freshen the air in your car, use it as a room spray or linen mist. I personally like to mist it around myself during the day for an aromatic boost. It is far healthier than coffee and candy!
At the end of the day, I find taking a bath with the “Uplift” Massage and Bath Oil is the perfect soothing antidote to stress. Adding a cup of Epsom salts is an extra healing treat. You can also massage your feet and hands with the “Uplift” Massage & Bath Oil or dab some right above your upper lip so that you can easily inhale the mood enhancing aroma though out the night.
Stay cheerful with Uplift!
