Aromatherapy for Winter Blues

Aromatherapy for Winter Blues

The winter blues, seasonal affective disorder, or depression...are you affected? Is someone you love affected? When it comes to mental health I am no expert however I, like many of you, am surrounded by many who suffer and certainly have had my own moments throughout my life. 

I'm all about life tools.  Whether it is new apps that make my workday easier, books that direct me towards a better self, advice and guidance of those who have "done it before", planners or calendars to manage my days, and of course one of my favorite tools ... aromatherapy!

Aromatherapy is an easy to use and a very accessible tool.  It's one of the reasons Pure Energy Apothecary exists; I wanted to be sure that ALL could have access to healthy body care and real aromatherapy.  Body care made with real ingredients you can read and essential oils can be affordable and accessible if a company chooses to make it so.  Pure Energy Apothecary has proven that.  

Having witnessed it first hand I can attest that seasonal affective disorder is real.  The winter blues or cabin fever can wear on us who live in cloudy, cold, snow-filled locations.  

When it comes to aromatherapy how can you help yourself or someone you love?  At Pure Energy Apothecary our answer is our very own Vermont handcrafted SATSUMA!

Satsuma's crisp citrus scent is naturally uplifting and comforting.  Add a Satsuma pure essential oil, air quality minded, slender reed diffuser to your home and workplace, carry a mini-spa bottle of Satsuma lotion with you in your pocket or leave in your desk, shower with Satsuma triple-milled bar soap then cover yourself with Satsuma body lotion and start your day on a bright note.  

Aromatherapy is a tool (not necessarily a cure all).  Arming ourselves with tools to support our daily lives is part of being life warriors!  The mental health stigma needs to end. Seeking care should feel as easy and accessible as the way we would treat high blood pressure or diabetes. 

Take control, find your tools and brighten your days. Pure Energy Apothecary's Satsuma is an easy tool to carry with you.

Have you made aromatherapy a part of your life? I'd love to hear about your experiences. 

with love and light, 

Dawn

On top of aromatherapy other easily accessible tools could be vitamin D, light therapy, meditation, and exercise. There really are so many resources for life warriors when we look for them. I always share these two when asked:
