Essential Oils Defeat Winter Blues


Newsflash! It has been reported all around Australia that the winter blues have been defeated this year due to the clever use of essential oils.

The oils responsible for this escape are:

Frankincense
Lavender
Sweet Orange
Ylang Ylang
Bergamot
Peppermint
Chamomile
Eucalyptus


Sitings of oils have been reported in homes across the country, and particularly within the bathroom region.

Residents are warned to make space in their cupboards for these oils. Many have antibacterial properties which can help prevent the onset of disease. They are all responsible for uplifting the spirits.

What to do with them when they are captured? Add them to your bath or vapouriser and inhale.

Bath Blend Recipes


Just drop the oils into ¼ cup of milk and add to the bath. The milk will allow the oils to disperse into the water while also helping to soften your skin.
