Increased public awareness of depression and anxiety are thankfully leading to more open discussion about the many causes and also the available options for dealing with symptoms, including the use of essential oils.

Both the causes and symptoms of negative energy, depression and anxiety are so varied and complex that there cannot ever be one single or simple cure. Indeed for many or even most sufferers ‘cure’ in the accepted sense is not an option. What is sought are non-harmful methods to mitigate the symptoms to enable those with depression and anxiety to relax and enjoy their experience during your service so that they leave with a positive life experience.

Essential oils can be a lifeline. While not necessarily a total solution, essential oils can provide some relief with no more effort than application or disbursement into the air. They create a feeling of light-heartedness and calm. They evoke a mood of stillness or lift up the recipient to a place of less agitation.
