Make Lemon Winter Whiffs

Make your own pocket-sized aromatherapy helper-in-a-bottle, such a convenient way to have some sweet-smelling stress-relief always close at hand. The main ingredient, lemon balm, has been known to relieve stress, anxiety, headache, nervous tension, insomnia and depression.

Find out how easy it is to make these whiffs, perfect for purse or glove compartment.

All you need is a small screw-top jar or bottle, a cotton ball, lemon balm essential oil, or dried lemon balm herb.

Soak the cotton ball in essential oil and place in jar, or fill jar with dried herb.

Whenever you need a breath of relief, simply uncap the jar and take a gentle whiff. When the fragrance fades, simply add a few drops of essential oil, or use a chopstick to stir and gently crush the dried balm.
