How does Stress Away help keep stress away? The perfect combination of Copaiba, Lime, Cedarwood, Ocotea and Lavender, of course.  

Ingredient #1: Copaiba

Stress Away contains the essential oil Copaiba. Copaiba contains B-caryophyllene. Why, yes it does. So are you wondering why we care about B-caryo…whatever? Let me fill you in. It is a chemical present in numerous plants including Cannabis which is being studied at fervent levels for being able to assist in feeling anxious and other emotional support concerns, among many other human issues.

Ingredient #2: Lime

Stress Away also contains lime. You should really look up lime, because it has a tremendous benefits including emotional, skin and lymphatic system support...just to get you curious. It also has a really fresh smell and taste.

Ingredient #3: Cedarwood

Stress Away also contains cedarwood. We can guess how God feels about cedarwood since the sacrifices were often given in recipes calling for cedarwood (Lev 14 and Num 19), and Solomon’s Temple, was made of cedarwood (1 Kings 6). Can’t you just close your eyes and take yourself there?

Cedarwood is my nite-nite oil when I am overwhelmed (that isn’t a disease condition yet is it?).  Cedarwood is full of sesquiterpines, which means it is heavier and the smell will hang with you a little longer, and who doesn’t want that? 

Ingredient #4: Ocotea

Next is Ocotea. This is one of my personal favorites. I have been able to curb my sugary food cravings by dropping one drop under my tongue when I am feeling naughty. I don’t know if they were thinking of me when they made this oil, but I am a comfort eater when I get stressed, so having this little beauty in Stress Away is like – BONUS!

Ingredient #5: Lavender

And last, but not least, is lavender. I don’t need to tell you how this oil has been celebrated, all over the world throughout all time, for its relaxing and soothing properties.

How To: Get Your Stress Away On!
