Ask Charlotte: Feeling Overwhelmed

Hi Charlotte, I'm currently going through a super busy spell at work, and struggling to switch off at the end of the day and find myself feeling overwhelmed.  Do you have any tips for how I can stay calm and collected until this project is completed? 

We're all guilty of overworking and sometimes it's inevitable during busier times at work and general life. Quick, natural remedies that can be used throughout the day in the workplace and when you get home are ideal when you're already squeezing a lot into your days. We love essential oils as a natural way to help alleviate stress and anxiety. 

Clary Sage essential oil is a great when you need a minute to recentre and recharge. Terpenes, a major component of essential oils, aid stress relief and can reduce any anxious thoughts. Pop a few drops onto a tissue and place it under your sleeve throughout the day to keep negative energy at bay. You could also try diffusing this potent essential oil when you get home. During inhalation, the odour molecules travel through the nose and directly to the brain, encouraging feelings of calm. 

The herby aroma of clary sage is especially grounding and perfect for when you need to take a step back from a hectic work schedule.
