Stress / Anxiety / Nervousness

We live in a world that can drive us crazy. Our forefathers were busy morning to night just as we are; but their stress was alleviated somewhat by the physical work it took to survive in those days. We have to fight traffic, compete in an ever-changing world, keep up payments, find a job, keep a job, and on and on. Plus many times we are “turned on and plugged in” 24-7 to computers, telephones, etc. To relieve this stress, the human body needs physical activity – something akin to plowing fields. But what we need and what we have time for, even with the best of intentions, doesn’t always come to pass. The result is stress, sleeplessness and anxiety, and all that makes us less healthy. Below are a few herbal blends I put together to help. Keep in mind you can’t expect to put a bandage on stress! You must decide to make changes.

Fields of Dreams Therapy Bar
ThRelax and drift away through the past centuries to the land of Gilead! Because of an ability to interpret dreams, Joseph (in the “Coat of Many Colors” story) had his life transformed. The double-sided label in the package tells about this biblical character and how the Fields of Dreams Bar relates. Contains saponified plant oils including Coconut and Olive oils, Rock rose (Cistus incanus), which has a slightly hypnotic scent and Sunflower oil, rich in vitamins A, D and E and essential fatty acids.

Lavender & Cocoa Butter Therapy Bar — Top-5 Therapy Bar
A Lavender-lover’s dream. This creamy, great-cleaning soap is truly relaxing with a combination of four different varieties of Lavender. Lavender has long been used to soothe skin conditions, but when you use this natural Lavender bar filled with antioxidant Olive and Coconut oils and enriched with skin emollient Cocoa butter, healing will be far from your mind. Relaxing and stress reducing. Contains saponified Coconut and Olive oils, Cocoa butter and a variety of Lavender essential oils. Why it helps: Lavender is antimicrobial; Cocoa butter is readily absorbed by the skin, and creates a barrier between sensitive skin and the environment and helps retain moisture.

WLS $7.00

Lavender Headache Relief Oil
For this special tonic, I infuse Lavender flowers in Olive oil for over a month to express the healing components of the plant. You will love how this relaxes you and, rubbed gently into temples and neck, can relieve headache pain. Can be used over all the body for relaxing aromatherapeutic massage.

A splendidly rich soap replete with cell-regenerating Vitamin C in the form of natural Rosehips, along with stress-reducing rosewood oil. Not a flowery-scented rose, but a scent with a bit of spice.
