As the long sunny days and joyful seasons pass some us may find that we begin to feel melancholy, unmotivated and have difficulties sleeping in our usual pattern. Although researchers are still studying the phenomena of seasonal affective disorder or S.A.D. most suggest that it is due to a decreased amount of sunshine and light that occurs during autumn and winter. Certainly, if prolonged or difficult feelings of depression occur than the first step would be to consult a primary health care practitioner. However, you may find aromatherapy can help to uplift your spirits, and pull you out of a slump. Aromatherapy can play a nurturing and supportive role to help carry us through the autumn (and winter) blues.



It can be difficult to know which essential oils are best suited to your needs, so we've compiled a list of some of our go-to oils to help you create your own winter blends.
