Blends to Ease the Winter Blues
Lack of greenery, gray skies, a snow-covered world, reduced activity and the cold temperatures of winter can all lead to what is known as the "Winter Blues." The Winter Blues involve feelings of sadness, depression and loss of energy.
These blends may help ease the symptoms of the winter blues. Simple blends using citrus oils are emphasized because they are energizing and uplifting oils. Orange, lemon and grapefruit oils are inexpensive (especially orange) and are also favored by many people, so your whole household may enjoy the aroma when diffused.
For additional information, read Aromatherapy Tips for Combating the Winter Blues and Holiday Blues.
When selecting and using oils, be sure to follow all safety precautions and remember that aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment.
