Essential Oils Are the Stress Antidote You Need

Do yourself a favor and get acquainted with Waft Aromatics.

Before founding Waft Aromatics, Erin Girard had had trouble sleeping. She tossed and turned but wanted to stay away from sleeping pills. Eventually she turned to a natural remedy: essential oils.

"Up until this point I had lumped essential oils in with crystals and tarot cards, but I was so desperate to find a non-addictive sleep aid that I figured it was worth a try," the San Francisco resident says. "I experimented with tons of different oil blends, ultimately creating one that lulled me into a deep and peaceful sleep every time. My mind was blown."

With a newfound interest in the powers of essential oils, Girard began reading up on oils and tinkering with them to craft antidotes for all sorts of maladies. She launched Waft Aromatics this past April to share her creations with the world. "It took a lot of research and experimentation to nail the oil blends," she says. "But the positive response from customers has made it all worth it."

Need some extra help fighting anxiety, insomnia, and stress? Below, Girard explains the benefit of each of Waft's handcrafted sprays.
