THe-Raindrop-Classic-by-Organic-Aromas

I’ve been crushing on essential oils for years, my friends.  Years ago, when I was struggling with stress and anxiety in my crazy-corporate job, I instinctively reached for essential oils.  I naturally knew that I did NOT want rely on anti-anxiety pills at that point.  So, I started to explore natural remedies such as a plant-forward diet, to more holistic approaches to managing stress.

{GIVEAWAY} Dr. Segal’s Compression Socks

Dr-Segals-Button-e1341204982819

When I think of compression socks, I always think of long distance runners.  I wouldn’t exactly call myself a runner even though I have a 3x weekly treadmill run on my calendar.
