The holidays can be a difficult time for those who feel alone or who are far from loved ones. Whether surrounded by family or friends or sitting beside a stranger in an unfamiliar place, feeling lonely is subjective. But when you’re feeling it, it’s real. I could go the traditional route today and urge you to get involved with a local soup kitchen or community group that serves the community. There’s good reason why ages old advice regarding offering service to others when you yourself are lonely has survived and thrived. But sometimes the reasons you feel lonely outweigh convention. So why not try a little liquid antidote to loneliness? I’m referring to a blend of essential oils that can bring personal peace, comfort and a way to cope when sprayed around your space with regularity and intent. Blend five drops of clove essential oil with ten drops of benzoin oil and then add fifteen drops of mood lifting, spirit-enhancing orange essential oil. Add this mix to a bowl of steaming water and let the scent waft the wallowing away. This is truly the essential antidote to loneliness.
