If you're on the "wellness" bandwagon, you already know that there's a healing crystal for each season, so it's little wonder that there are certain essential oils that are especially useful at different times of year, too.
When it comes to winter, you can probably guess the sort of benefits you'll want in an essential oil. Considering the chaos of the holiday season and the dark, dreary, and, in many cases, snowy months that follow, we could certainly use some varieties that help boost relaxation, clarity, and positivity.

That way, you can enjoy its effects without any concerns of having a sensitivity or reaction to it.
