Summer can be one of the best, most fun times of the year, and it can also be one of the most overwhelming times. We hear a lot of talk about the slow, relaxing days of summer, and that’s true to an extent, but when you have young kids, a job, and a life, summer can feel anything but slow.

Summertime living is easy — or so it seems. Between planning vacations and ball games, trying to get things done at work, and packing your days full of fun activities, the summer can be more chaotic than carefree.
All the little things you’re juggling can add to lots of stress: Contrary to popular belief, a new study from the American Physiological Society says that stress can rise in the summer. The good news? If you’re feeling stressed, you’re not alone, and there are plenty of ways to decrease your stress levels and keep your emotional health in check.

You know we’re going to talk about oils because they are beneficial when we are dealing with emotions, but we are also going to dig into more info and tips.

Pop this blend into your diffuser right now and feel yourself start to relax.

    Thank you for the informative post. Summertime was always a fun relaxing time when I had kiddos but today lives are too busy and stressful. I'll definitely try that diffuser recipe.

    Let us know what you think after you've tried it, Roberta!
  2. I’m new to all the diffuser recipes…but the ones I’ve tried have been great. This one sounds like a good one too!

    I love diffusing... all the time. Having multiple recipes allows me to have lots of fun experimenting! When you're new, the recipes give you confidence as someone has already "tried it out" - after a while you will become courageous and just throwing whatever you think will go together in the diffuser. I've only had one or two experiments that I wasn't crazy about! LOL
  3. Stress Away and Northern Lights Black Spruce are two favorites for stress
