In previous posts I have introduced the idea of using essential oils as a complementary method to assist us in coping with mind, body, and spirit care. Essential oils are not intended to replace any medications we require for our health. Rather, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) is used as a way to enhance, not replace, our self-care regimen.
Stress is known to cause pain in the neck, shoulders, and back. Stress also causes insomnia and headaches. How do you manage these issues? Do you take a pain pill for your body?

In some countries, essential oils are regulated and used as a methodology for helping patients enhance their relief with health issues: An example, is Canada where Essential Oils are regulated as Natural Health Products. These products require the approval of Health Canada (FDA in the USA) approval before going to market.

Loss of the ability to function the way we could when we were younger; loss of friends and companions; sickness. All of these things add to enormous stress, and sometimes despondent feelings. But what if thinking positively could help us out? Should we at least try to find a way to cultivate this habit?
♣ An article in the New York Times suggest that our thoughts can do “far more than raise one’s spirits”. How about if thinking positively could boost your immune system, alleviate depression, lower your blood pressure, give you better weight control. Would you try it?
