Beat Winter Blues With Aromatherapy Baths

by Sue Charles

Here in the United Kingdom, the cold, wet, dark and gloomy weather has really set in now, with record-breaking levels of rainfall in many parts during January. Thank goodness we’re not knee-deep in snow, but nonetheless, right now Spring seems far, far away.
