Want A Quick Way To Change Your Mood And Uplift Your Energy? Try This...

Fill a small spray bottle with water. Add a few drops of pure essential oil (see below) and spray/mist the room (about 10 drops in a 2 oz bottle). Keep the bottle on a side table and each time you walk by during the day, spritz a little into the air. 

Extensive research has shown that smells affect our emotional reactions to people and situations. We can dramatically influence the way we feel and change our energy levels just by changing the scents. 

Denise Linn, author of Sacred Space suggests using the following pure essentials oils by area of home and feel. 

  • Basil - Uplifting
