Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: September 11, 2013

Today’s Aromatherapy Tip of the Day: September 11, 2013 is Moods and Emotions
1 9-11-2001
A lot of Americans still carry anger, anxiety, fear, loss, and grief from the 9-11 attacks. Anger that someone would actually attack and kill nearly 3,000 innocent people. Anxiety/Fear – Could it happen again? Could it be worse? The Loss/Grief of losing family members and/or friends not only on 9-11, but in the war that ensued.
Anyway, I will leave the politics and statistics to the pro’s. I just want to tell you how Aromatherapy can help.
