 Scents in the Sky

It is time for a vacation? Want to get to your destination as peacefully as possible? If you anticipate and prepare for your travel problems,  you can save yourself a lot of stress. Flying can cause distress for a variety of physical and emotional reasons. Traveling may cause symptoms such as nausea, vomiting and sinus congestion. It often brings on colds and flu if others on the plane are sick. And for some it wreaks havoc on their nervous systems causing anxiety, stress, nervousness, impatience, and panic attacks. The good news is that all of these issues can be offset with the proper use of pure essential oils. An aromatherapy mister or sniffing essential oils from a cloth could bring quick relief. To make a mist, add 15-20 drops of a Pure Essential Oil or Pure Essential Oil blend to 2 oz of distilled water in a fine mist bottle. Put top on, shake and it's done.
