Breakups stink so let’s not pretend there are any easy cures for a broken heart. The best TLC often comes by indulging in life’s healthier luxuries like ripe (organic) strawberries, a little dark chocolate, and plenty of one-on-one time with your best friends. In the meantime, soothe your mood by treating your body and mind to an aromatherapy bath with essential oils that help bring emotional healing.
