Reduce Anxiety & Stress with Super Plants

Anxiety and stress are no joke. And almost everyone is continuously working to cope with it. In January 2021, 92% of Canadians reported feeling stress, with 22% of saying that their stress levels had increased since the previous month. It is reported that 5% of Canadians have diagnosed anxiety disorders, and that doesn’t account for the Canadians who have not received an official diagnosis. Most people are dealing with this, and for a significant amount of people, their stress is getting increasingly worse. So, what can we do to naturally decrease the feelings of stress, anxiety, and overwhelm that we are all facing on a daily basis? 


Research is showing more and more that there are powerful plants that can significantly reduce stress and anxiety, especially through aromatherapy. Aromatherapy is the practice of utilizing the aromatic properties of plants through receptors in your olfactory system. Using a Füm is the fastest, most effective way to get the direct aromatic benefits of the plants. 

So what are these powerful plants for reducing stress and calming anxiety? And why are they helpful? Let’s hop into it!
