Console the Comforting Blend uses sweet floral and tree essential oils for a comforting aroma, putting you on a hopeful path of emotional healing. 
It is what I have recommended to everyone who tells me about their loss(s). They have all told me how helpful it has been. It doesn't take away the pain. It helps you get through the days and process to move forward in this life. Unfortunately, I have had the opportunity to try it myself recently and I totally agree with them.
