I discovered essential oils last year, and I have been absolutely hooked ever since! Whether I am adding a few drops in my bath to relax after a stressful day or using mist sprays to help ease my aching wrists, I can always find an oil for what I need.

While shopping at Walgreens, I came across  Nature’s Truth® Products and decided to give them a try. There were so many things to choose from: essential oils, mist sprays, and different beauty serums.
oilSo far I have absolutely loved my Nature’s Truth oils! The fact that each oil is derived from 100% all-natural plant sources such as flowers, leaves and roots makes me feel even better about using them. And their aromatherapy products are so versatile and can be used in unique ways.


One of my favorite products has been the Rejuvenating Lavender Mist Spray. Since I am working all day at a high stress desk job, I like to keep this spray near me to give me a sense of calm and relaxation. I also really like to use this right before bed since the lavender scent is so soothing.

I have started to get a little more comfortable and creative with oils and decided to try making aromatherapy play dough for adults. For adults, it is like having both a stress ball and the soothing effects of an oil diffuser in one.


Personally, my favorite oil combination is Eucalyptus and Lavender. It helps me feel calm and peaceful throughout my long, stressful days at work. I usually place a drop or two in my diffuser necklace, but will definitely be taking a batch of aromatherapy play dough to keep at my desk with this scent!
