When I walk, I take an essential oil ‘sniffer‘ with me (2 or 3 drops on a tissue). I am a certified aromatherapist/trainer for essential oils and I use my sense of smell with essential oils to provide me with the therapeutic benefits of relaxation, increased energy, and pain relief.
Walking gives me the benefits of increased energy, boosts my mood, provides relief from arthritis and helps increase my focus.
