CHARLOTTE – With the chilly season upon us, come shorter, colder days and longer, darker nights. We can look to essential oils to help fight off the winter blues.
Considering the chaos of the holiday season and the dark, dreary, and, in many cases, snowy months that follow, we could certainly use some varieties that help boost relaxation, clarity, and positivity. Take a look at my favorite five essential oils for the winter months.
Lavender-For rest and tranquility
For how long the nights are during the winter, it can be surprisingly hard to feel truly well-rested during these dark and dreary months. If you wake up wishing for eight more hours, consider adding a lavender essential oil to your bedtime routine.
Geranium-For support and uplift

Sweet Marjoram-For relaxation and positivity
If your anxiety ramps up during the holiday season, sweet marjoram should be your go-to essential oil. Used to alleviate worries, stress, and negative thoughts, and it’s even thought to encourage you to think more optimistically.
