Depression, amongst other conditions, takes it's toll on a human being; physically, emotionally and mentally. When the feeling of hopelessness, and despair becomes overwhelming, it can make it become extremely difficult to enjoy life and function the way that we initially experienced. From a personal perspective, after witnessing someone closely related to me suffer through the different stages of depression, I can firmly say that regardless of how hopeless a person may feel, you can get better.
One strategy that I promote that's often times underestimated is the practice of armotherapy. A little over a year ago, as a way for me to create something that could possibly aid others; physically, emotionally and mentally, I began to study the craft of creating therapeutic scented candles that are made with 100% natural fragrances. Each of the fragrances that I use has been scientifically proven to benefit a person who may be overwhelmed, stressed, angry, and even depressed.
This craft is not just a hobby of mine, it's my way of helping out.
