Essential Oils For Addictions 

Essential Oils For Addictions


Addictions (as defined by ASAM) is a "primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory, and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations." When normal everyday functioning is disturbed because of extreme and harmful need/craving to engage in activities, then an addiction problem may exist.
