You already buy essential oils:

Fragrances, when inhaled, no matter what their source, enter the blood stream and are able to breech the blood-brain barrier gaining access to the limbic system. This affects the emotions and alters mood.

I decided to do a little research about what essential oils are put into perfumes, soaps and hair care products. Some projects I’ve worked on have shown me that an Egyptian queen in 1500 B. C. used myrrh and Cleopatra used rose.  A hairspray bottle included White Ginger in its ingredients. Is it put into it to volumize my hair? I think some hairsprays use organically grown botanicals but I got curious what other plant extracts were being put into our bathroom supplies.

Orange, Lavender, Ylang Ylang, Chamomile, Orchid, Ginger, Grapefruit, Tangerine, Lemongrass, Sage, Cassia, Clove, Peppermint, Rosemary, Rose, Lemon, Lime, Petigrain, Jasmine, Tea Tree, Anise, Geranium, Bergamot, Carrot Seed, Lotus, Fish oil?

    To complicate matters, depression is generally based on anxiety, causing us
    to be regularly fearful of what can happen next. L replied in monosyllables to the questions
    being addressed to her. It has been shown to improve mood
    and help one be able to effectively deal with challenging circumstances.
    As mentioned earlier the first step to getting out of depression
    is acceptance of the mental issue.
