In the midst of daily activities and responsibilities it’s easy to let feelings of worry and stress creep in. According to Dr. Hill “stress induces physiologic changes that cause a natural resistance to weight loss and can reduce immune capability.” In an attempt to counter stress and its effects, essential oils are a great resource to soothe, calm and de-stress. Specifically, the AromaTouch® essential oil blend and Marjoram essential oil are just two examples of these calming oils that can help.
