Pure Essential Oils Offer Healthcare Solutions During Difficult Economic Times

According to the latest statistics, the current recession has many people suffering from more than just economic woes. Many people have been experiencing an increase in stress and anxiety, which has led to many sleepless nights and a host of health concerns.

Pure, natural essential oils are an affordable, safe way to address these concerns.

Reduce Stress:
Several essential oils are ideal for elevating mood and helping one regain a positive outlook.
Lavender, Wild Orange, Lemongrass, Peppermint, and Lemon essential oils. Diffuse any one of these, or create your own uplifting blend!

According to a recent report in USA TODAY by Michelle Healy, "Use of prescription sleep aids nearly tripled among young adults from 1998 to 2006, according to a study by Thomson Reuters. A study of medical and drug claims data found a 50% increase in use of the drugs among adults under 45. But perhaps the most startling finding was the increase in use of sleep aids among adults 18 to 24. Use in this age group rose to 1,524 users per 100,000 in 2006, up from 599 users per 100,000 in 1998."

Several of doTERRA's pure essential oils provide a safe, all-natural remedy without side effects.

Start Snoozing:
Studies have documented the effectiveness of lavender essential oil to induce sleep, Geranium essential oil for its ability to ease anxiety and tension and calm the mind, and Serenity Calming Blend for its ability to promote restful sleep.

My Faves:
1. Massage a few drops of Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity to the bottom of the feet before going to bed.
2. Add a few drops of Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity to a spray bottle filled with water and spritz bed linens and pillow before bedtime.
3. Add several drops of Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity to warm bath water and enjoy a relaxing soak in the tub.
4. Diffuse Lavender, Geranium, or Serenity in your room to create a relaxing, sleep-inducing environment.
