De-stressing with Essential Oils
Friday, April 4th

Did you know that April is National Stress Awareness Month? After that long winter we had, I imagine we could all use a little something to “de-stress” this month. Our first "goodbye to stress" night will be on Essential OIls.  

What are essential oils and how can we use them to relieve stress? Find this out and more when you join Melissa for this informational session which includes making your own essential oil spray to take home!  Please register for this class in-store or online with Eventbrite:  https://www.eventbrite.com/e/de-stressing-with-essential-oils-tickets-11046860457
