Essential Oils for Introverts & Extroverts

Everyone finds energy and fulfillment in different kinds of activities, in different settings, and with different company.  Some of us may feel invigorated by a crowded party with tons of conversation while others may find more fun in a quiet night at home with a book or movie.  Extroverts are those of us who enjoy socialization and time spent with large groups.  Introverts are those who prefer time alone or with a more select, small group of others.  We can figure out which of these groups we identify with by examining how we choose to spend our free time.  Introverts may prefer to decompress after a long work week by relaxing at home or going on a solo hike in the forest.  Extroverts on the other hand may celebrate the weekend by planning dinner with friends or going out for a night of karaoke.  Some of us may even identify with both personality types depending on our mood and the situation.  Whether we are an introvert or an extrovert, or somewhere in between, essential oils can help us to maintain balance and joy in our everyday life.  Here are a few of our favorite essential oils for each personality type.
