Aromatherapy for winter blues

Grey skies, no light, 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. 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 selecting and using oils, be sure to follow all safety percautions and remember that aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment.

About the Author:

Pure natural cosmetics is not just a name, for me and many others it became a way of life!

All my life I had an affinity to healthy life style. As a dancer and a trainer, i was always looking for the good combination of healthy food and healthy movement.

In time I learned that its not only what you eat that matters. Also what you use as cosmetics or medical products is important.

The skin is the biggest organ in our body. About 60% of what we put on our skin gets into the blood system and with that to the inner organs.

I invest my heart and soul into “Pure natural cosmetics” and the best part is to hear the amazing comments from my client.
