(Because of these qualities it might also help a person struggling with loss, control, tension and more.) I’ll say it again though; it’s a strong oil to use emotionally. But it’s worth it.

It might be out of a lack of self-love, feelings of “selfishness”, hypochondria, or even a lesson that many people learn that says illness is what gains you love and attention.
