Building Your 2021 Winter Defense

This past year we have all seen and used more hand sanitizer than we ever wanted to. No, fighting a worldwide pandemic while staying indoors for the last 10 months was NOT the 2020 we wanted. However, this past year did give us the opportunity to realize and focus on something that truly matters, our health. 

Thankfully, with proper exercise, good sleep, and some natural help from Mother Nature’s garden, we all can begin building up our winter health defense for a very happy, healthy, and positive 2021. To start the New Year off on the right foot, check out a few of our favorite essential oils and blends that are designed to help promote deeper breathing, clear the air, and support your body throughout the colder winter months!

Try using it topically with your favorite carrier for direct benefits, or diffuse it for a clarity-inspired space. This one is definitely one of our favorites for the winter season!
