When faced with a diagnosis, the patient, as well as their family, friends, and caregivers often experience a whirlwind of emotions from the very beginning of the diagnosis, and throughout the entire journey.
Joining a support group (online or in person) or seeing a counselor can be very helpful for validating, expressing, and processing these difficult emotions. So can prayer, meditation, journaling, or even having a good, cleansing cry. Phone calls and visits with loved ones can also be very good for morale.
But one resource that we have access to, day or night, to go to for immediate support are the MANY beautiful Essential Oils to help improve our sense of emotional well-being.
NOTE: All the mood management oils suggested below are to be used aromatically in a diffuser, or also come in the Pre-Diluted Roller Bottle option, and can be applied to pulse points which will allow the oil to diffuse as it is worn.
