Natural Remedies for Stress - French Style

Natural Remedies for Stress - French Style

This week, we wanted to touch on a subject that is common for many people - stress. Lack of sleep, working too many hours and not eating a healthy balanced diet, these are just a few common causes for stress. When it comes to the cure, we first look towards natural remedies. Thus, this week, we aim to provide a few natural remedies using essential oils (huiles essentielles) that, when placed on various areas of your body (cou (neck), joue (cheek), etc), will help to reduce stress, allergies, & pain relief. For many French people, natural remedies are usually the first step to curing an ailment. Antibiotics & medicine are typically the second. We hope you enjoy this quick list en Français!
