Roll-On Mood Enhancer

The hustle and bustle of the holiday season is over. Most of us have packed up the decorations, kids are back in school, and things are beginning to get back to normal.

These two simple but effective natural formulas may help you regain a bit of sanity. The first blend is for those days when the coffee just isn't doing it or you find yourself in a mental fog. The essential oils used in this formula will uplift your spirits and help you get moving again.

The second mixture should help you relax and let go of tension. It even helps with falling asleep and staying asleep when your mind is in a whirlwind of thoughts.
