Depression is incredibly common. In fact, you may be near someone every day and not even know that he or she is suffering from depression.
Luckily, there are natural remedies for depression out there, including using certain essential oils — similar to the way you can use essential oils for anxiety.
They do not cure depression and people should not use an essential oil in place of prescribed medication. However aromatherapy can be used effectively as a supplement to those methods, or by itself for less severe situational cases such as behavioral therapy and antidepressants.
