DIY Aromatherapy Mist to Destress This Holiday Season


  • 2 ounces distilled water (serves as a nontoxic carrier for the calming oils)
  • 5 drops organic lavender essential oil (eliminates nerve tension; relieves pain; promotes circulation; can help treat insomnia; relaxing and calming effect)
  • 5 drops organic rosemary essential oil (reduces pain, relieves tension; increases focus; improves mental clarity)
