HOW DOES IT WORK? Put simply, Wise Men Calm Balm essential oil blend has aromatic, fragrant molecules that can pass through the blood/brain barrier, having a direct effect on the areas of our brain in charge of controlling feelings of stress and anxiety and even panic and depression. STUDIES: A study conducted in Ruhr University in Bochum, Germany suggested that, "essential oils may affect a number of biological factors, including heart rate, stress levels, blood pressure, breathing, and immune function."
ADAPTABILITY: Wise Men Calm Balm can be both calming and stimulating. The same oil can have a different "effect" depending on what is required of it. So a restless person may find that they feel calm after using a particular oil, while another individual who is feeling low and depressed may get an uplifting and invigorating effect using the same oil. This is why some essential oils are referred to as "adaptogens" because they can literally "adapt" to the needs of the person using the oil. This is also why Wise Men Calm Balm works so well for stress as it has the unique ability to adapt to the different types and levels of stress different individuals battle with.
