Stress and anxiety have become common issues in our fast-paced lives.
This has led to a rise in stress-related health issues, negatively impacting both our mental and physical health.
Stress and anxiety can be attributed to a lack of sleep, increasing lifestyle commitments and work pressures.
Aromatherapy has been used since ancient times to promote feelings of calm and relaxation. Inhaling and topically applying pure essential oils can help to alleviate stress, insomnia or depression.
