  1. Deb,

    Thank you for such an informative episode on healthy holiday aromas. I love suggestions that are easy to implement and affordable! Sometimes it takes a little reminder on ways that we can do things for ourselves and others without too much time-consuming effort. There are so many aromas and aromatherapy essential oils out there it is helpful to know some of your favorites and why. Sometimes too many choices are not a good thing! Thank you for sharing your insightful knowledge with us.

  2. You know, I have been missing some aromas around the holidays over the last few years and you reminded me. Sometimes traditions get lost in the shuffle if no one steps up to carry them on. Having healthy holiday aromas such as the orange, clove, cinnamon , peppermint help relieve stress and provide comfort. Thanks Debra for the reminder and great idea that will help us enjoy Christmas and the season.
