The holiday season often means spending time with family members we might not get along with, which can cause a lot of anxiety. For a little extra courage, add the following to a small vial of olive oil (or other carrier oil):
* 1 whole clove
Dab the oil on your wrists when faced with unpleasant or stressful situations. The vial should be small enough to fit in your pocket easily and discreetly so it can be used as needed, and the scents from the oil will complement a family meal and not attract any undue attention.
