The word, ‘coronavirus’ is on everyone’s lips, every social media post, and in every news article. It’s a word that has become as viral as the disease itself, creeping into our minds and weighing heavily on our hearts. In a world that is shutting its doors in self-isolation, many people are experiencing increasing levels of cabin fever, anxiety, and depression. We’re longing to dig our toes into the messy soil and feel the fresh breeze on our faces. If you’re facing the struggles of your four walls and longing for the outdoors, essential oils can be your fragrant companions to revive your home space and welcome nature indoors.
At Sanctus Essence, we have compiled a list of essential oils that will walk you through these #stayhome days. It’s a survival kit from the heart of Mother Nature - helping you unlock the healing essence of the earth in your home.
Essential Oils to Focus the Mind
When you’re shut indoors with nothing to keep you company but the constant drone of news and social media opinions, it is easy for your mind to become frazzled and frantic.
