DIY Aromatherapy Blends for Stress, Anxiety and Mood

Many of us are affected by stress or anxiety in our lives, and for some of us this can be a daily battle. But with the world currently facing a time of uncertainty & distress during the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, it is no surprise that many of us have been left with intense feelings of stress & anxiousness facing the coming weeks of isolation & quarantine.

It can be quite daunting how to cope with the new circumstances we have been faced with & even those who may not exactly feel anxious, can still be left feeling low. 
It is TOTALLY NORMAL & completely natural to experience overwhelming feelings at a time like this & it’s what makes us human. At The Coconut Bee we are massively inspired by nature and the natural world & we know the importance Aromatherapy can play in soothing our mental well being as well as the physical.
