Lack of greenery, gray skies, a snow-covered world, reduced activity and the cold temperatures of winter can all lead to what is known as the “Winter Blues.” The Winter Blues involve feelings of Sadness, depression and loss of energy.

The below blends can help ease the symptoms of the winter blues. Citrus oils are emphasized because they are energizing and uplifting oils. Orange, Lemon and Grapefruit oils are inexpensive (especially Orange) and are also favored by many people, so your whole household may enjoy the aroma.

When selecting and using oils, be sure to follow all safety precautions and remember that aromatherapy should not be used as a substitute for proper medical treatment.
