We have all been in that unpleasant state of both physical and mental exhaustion after a long day at work or a string of stressful events. We have all been visited by our despised acquaintances named insomnia and anxiety as well. That is when our entire body is screaming for salvation and balance restoration and our mind is starting to turn its back on us. All of these difficulties can be easily escaped if we are willing to give essential oils a chance. Yes, they are here to serve but one purpose and that is to bring our body and mind back to life.
