Winter depression is very real. As this holiday season approaches, some see it as the most wonderful time of year while others dread it.
According to Psychology Today, Seasonal Affective Disorder is a type of recurrent major depressive disorder in which episodes of depression occur during the same season each year. This condition is sometimes called the “winter blues.”
Luckily with research on sensory engagement impacting moods, The Mood Factory has created a line of products that will help boost moods this winter.
The formulations are based on their white paper, expert advisors, and extensive research, and supporting the moodstates of Tranquility, Serenity, Happiness, and Energy. Each of these essential oil blends are then infused into consumer products, like bath bombs, scent sticks, massage oils, shower steamers, and body butters.
