Self-care with Therapy Threads & Giveaway – 2017 Holiday Gift Guide

therapy threads

It is not just the holiday season: life in general can be stressful, and it can wreak havoc on our minds as well as our everyday responsibilities.

Aromatherapy, which involves the use of essential oils as a complementary health approach, has grown in popularity as a way to de-stress, just like coloring. Some studies have shown that aromatherapy might have health benefits, such as:

  • Relief from anxiety and depression
  • Improved quality of life, particularly for people with chronic health conditions
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved quality of life for people with dementia

I use an electric aromatherapy oil diffuser (like this one), but how about surrounding yourself everywhere you go with kind thoughts along with the benefits of aromatherapy? Therapy Threads has you covered! Continue reading “Self-care with Therapy Threads & Giveaway – 2017 Holiday Gift Guide”
