Chronic Fatigue Syndrome:
Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) causes intense feelings of tiredness that prevent you from accomplishing normal day-to-day activities. Other symptoms include forgetfulness, difficulty concentrating, and memory loss. Pain, lymph node soreness, fever, and persistent headaches accompany some cases. See your doctor if symptoms do not subside with treatment, or if frequent dizziness or severe depression develops.
Diffuse Basil, Frankincense, And Peppermint:
Basil frankincense, and peppermint essential oils are well known for their ability to energize the mind and body; they can also help with headaches when diffused. Choose which ever of these essential oils appeals to you and diffuse it in the area where you spend the most time. You may also obtain relief by wearing an aromatherapy pendant containing one of these essential oils. Alternate between essential oils for additional relief, paying close attention to which one works best for you.
