Upper Downer Oils

Gotta get higher? There’s an oil for that. Wanna wind down? There’s an oil for that too. Lately we’re obsessed with these moody essential oils blends from sustainable-chic retailer, The Dreslyn, for a little aromatherapy action that gets us to just the right level.

We’re all about staying in balance, but sometimes an energy boost or release is a welcome change — whether it’s a little cardio and a coffee catapult on slothish mornings or a breathwork session followed by a glass of wine to wind down from a stressful day.
